Hi, my name is Fred!

I am incredibly friendly, even to strangers, and will usually show affection towards anyone who comes near me. My perfect family will be one that can make me the center of their universe and give me a TON of attention. I do better with adults and dogs, so no kids or other cats, please. I am?healthy, UTD on shots,?and litterbox trained. Learn more about me?by scrolling down?or just adopt me?by clicking the button?below (you know you want to!)

Fred wants to be the center of attention. Goes from docile to irritated quickly. Bites when least expected. Ambushes the other (older) cat. Has recently started urinating AROUND the box put out for the older cat.
Fred’s Current Home Environment
Two cats (Fred & Nutmeg, who is about 11 yrs. old) she lives upstairs except to come down and eat in the kitchen, largely because Fred will chase her away. Husband (he’s 85) has early Alzheimer’s disease and has been bitten by Fred (as have I). Fred spends a lot of time during the day in hubby’s lap (a good thing) but, the behaviors (biting, urinating outside the box) are mine to contend with.
Fred’s Current Family:
Just us, aging couple, two cats. We’ve had cats for over 20 years. We acquired Fred from the no-kill shelter in Hastings in 2013 when our oldest cat, Al, became ill and had to be euthanized.
Fred’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Loves to laze around, enjoys playing with objects (balls, catnip toys, etc.) will chase a laser pointer, and enjoys catnip. Fred will ambush, hunt, hurt and harass our other cat. If he gets outside (he’s fast) he will hunt and bring us moles or mice to show off his skills. He always comes home (so far).
Why is Fred Being Rehomed?
The two unwanted behaviors are urinating outside the box and biting, unexpectedly. With an older and increasingly confused husband, these erratic behaviors simply add risk and make more work for me than I have the time, energy or interest in pursuing. I’m a wound nurse and my own cat bite wounds have taken considerable time to heal!
Fred needs to be in a family where he IS the center of attention — no competition from other pets, kids or priorities!
Fred’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
A single person (adult) who wants both a lap-cat and a pet who will follow him or her around looking for attention would be good. Fred is declawed on front paws, so should NOT be an out-door cat, but the chance to go outside — a porch, patio, etc. would be good for him. He needs to play more (someone who will play with him) and maybe he’d be less likely to become agitated and bite.
