URGENT/Foster needed/no male cats!!

Simba is a beautiful big boy, about 3 years old who was abandoned before Xmas.

Someone took him in and he is now neutered. He's fine with dogs, and is VERY affectionate and friendly. He loves to sleep in bed cuddled up in the crook of your arm, and you can do anything to him as long as you keep touching him!:)

The problem is the person fostering him has two other male cats, and Simba (due to being an adult intact cat) does NOT like them. Consequently, he spends most of his time caged and he is miserable.

If anyone can foster him, please PM me for contact info!

is there anyway he can be neutered, then put back with the foster home to see if things subside

Oh it probably will subside, but it could take months for a mature tomcat to settle down after neutering. It takes awhile for all the testosterone to go.

I've had extremely fierce adult (5 years old male) neutered, and he did stop attacking other males after a time. The person fostering Simba doesn't have an extra room to keep him in though, so he'll be caged most of the time until a foster or adopter is found.:(

This HUGE gorgeous guy was at our adoption event today, and practically had people lining up. He's gone to a wonderful home to be buddies with a Lab.:)

He's even more gorgeous in person with a personality that captivated everyone!

The lady fostering him is a professional photographer, and the other cat she took in around the same time, Billie Joe, also got adopted today.

Take a look at the pic she did of him!
