Metro the cat is looking for a new family in the Toronto area

Hi! My name is Metro. My friends say that I am sweet and cuddly. Definitely true. I like to be pet, have my chin scratched, and give headbutts. They also say I am very outgoing. Mhm, sounds like me. When I have visitors I come out right away to say hi and ask for scratches and treats. I love meeting new people and rubbing my head against their arms. They give me treats, I give them purrs. Everybody wins. It has also been said that I am very beautiful and charming and basically perfect. Don’t ask me about all that. It’s just what they say.

I’m what you’d call an extroverted introvert. I love hanging out with my people and getting all the attention. But I’m also a little shy at first. One of my favourite things to do is hide under my blanket with only my face poking out. You can still scratch me when I do this by the way. When I get to know you better, I become less shy. But I still love my blankets!

Okay… I must tell you something. I have FLUTD, which stands for feline lower urinary tract disease. My humans say that is no big deal. They say all I need is a special diet and lots of water! They will provide you with all the info you need before and after you bring me home.

I am currently accepting applicants for a full time family. Responsibilities include scratching my head, making room on your lap for me, giving me all the treats, and reminding me how handsome I am.

The ideal candidate will give me lots of time to come out of my shell and be respectful of my space. The ideal HOME is quiet and calm. I am a sweet and sensitive boy who needs a sweet and sensitive home! If there are doggies or other cats in the home, please let me know beforehand. I hope they will be as gentle as I am!
