Hi, my name is Monyo! I am an affectionate cat after I get to know you.  Once we are friends, I follow you all over the house having a nice conversation.  

PURRSONALITY: Affectionate, curious, loves all humans! 

LITTERBOX TRAINED: Yes. We use Cat Attract, Scoop Away and Tidy Cat clumping litters. We use a variety and Monyo likes them all.  

FOOD: I prefer canned food.  Pate style is my favorite.  I like dry kidney care food as a treat. I come with a 1-year prescription for my kidney care food to the lucky person(s) who adopt me :) This makes it much easier to start feeding me right away, although my foster mom will send me with a few cans of my food and favorite gravy treats.

FAVORITES: Following you around the home, getting pets, lounging in the cat tree, CATNIP and eating!  I like to scratch so a cat tree and scratching posts are a must in my furever home! I also LOVE boxes and cat cubes to sleep in.  I LOVE looking out windows watching birds, squirrels and people walking by.

DISLIKES: Being picked up and held.


NIGHTTIME: I am quiet at night. I like to sleep in bed with you.  

OTHER ANIMALS: I prefer dogs over cats.  I coexist with other cats as long as they know I am in charge.  If the resident cats want to play or steal my food, I give a hiss and a swat.  I am happy as long as the other cats give me space.  I don't mind sharing the cat tree with them or laying on the couch a couple feet apart.  I am not into playing with other cats as humans seem more fun to me :)

HEALTH: My foster mom was wondering why I wasn't gaining weight, so we had my blood work checked.  I am diagnosed with renal disease and grade 3/6 heart murmur,   My kidney care food is helping me feel better.  My appetite has increased and I am so happy now.

IDEAL HOME: I need a very special home with someone who will take extra good care of me.  I eat kidney care food and gravy treats.  Is there someone with a huge heart who can give me lots of love?  I am very affectionate with my humans.  I would love a quiet home with someone to dote on me.  I promise to love you with all of my kitty heart, it will even skip a beat for you! 

Based on Monyo's personality, I would not recommend young children in his home.  Older respectful children would be just fine.

A note from my foster family: Monyo is in charge of our home :)  Our cats respect his boundaries and he is very happy they treat him like a king.  We have an active home with our cats and dogs as well as foster cats and dogs from time to time.  Once Monyo feels safe, he is quite curious and likes to follow you around.  He likes to be pet and LOVES treats and food.
