–THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT; THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT KYLE AT THE EMAIL BELOW–

Meet Diddles. He is a 6 year old short hair tabby. I adopted him 5 years ago from the humane society when he was 1 year old and he has been a great partner in crime ever since. He is a very social cat and loves to hang around crowds and follow you around the house and is a total lap cat. He’s quite large, about 16 lbs, and has two deformed back paws, that for the most part, do not hinder him. He loves to play and jump around on his cat shelves and chase bugs on the wall, or he is happy to just lay next to you when you watch your favorite movie.

Here is the situation. For the past year and a half I’ve been living with my partner and her sister who have a 10 year old Doberman/Lab mix.  He is the sweetest dog, but unfortunately he has a horribly high prey instinct.  This is partially due to his very neglected first two years of life, where he was caged most of the time, before he was eventually adopted by my roommate and given an amazing life. Unfortunately, that early isolation gave him some poor behavior and he has difficulty with other animals and does chases every little critter that moves, including Diddles.

The solution has been that Diddles has lived most of the past year and a half in the basement, segregated from all of us and from the dog.  We spend as much time with him as we can, play with him, and watch movies, but it’s not enough and he has begun to act out, attacking randomly and spraying out of his litter box.  He is too social of a cat for this lifestyle and I cannot bare to let him live like this any longer.

I love this cat. I am having the hardest time with this, but I am not giving him the best home, life, and environment that he could have. He needs friends, more stimulation, and a much better home, where he isn’t always running for his life and being segregated from the ones he loves. I would love to find him an amazing cat lover, so if you are interested please contact me by email at me@kyletravers.com.
