Arlo badly needs a home

This is Arlo. He is going for his snip tomorrow and if everything else checks out - as I expect it will - he will be ready for his forever home. He is a clean, neat little fellow, loves to play (never mind that his current space, the bathroom, is about three feet square) and laps, where he leans against you like a child and puts his face up for a kiss.
He hates being locked in, cries and cries, but with the number of cats in the apartment beyond ridiculous, I am not even thinking about integrating him, it would just be extra stress on all of us. It's already enough around here.
So if you are thinking of adopting a cat, please think of springing Arlo from his prison. He seems fine with the other cats (from the little exposure he's had) and could probably stand up quite nicely to a friendly dog.

Frenchy, remember I snatched Monsieur Le Chat right off the alley and you picked him up the same morning? Before that, I don't remember him getting into any fights, he mostly kept to himself. That's really all I can say for sure. My smoothest adoption ever
Is Monsieur looking for a friend? No pressure

1. Pinky would be willing. He's a flat-out angel.
2. Goose, no beauty, but oh so laid-back, his tolerance knows no bounds. His comic, playful side has been lost in the crowd recently :sad:

Yes he is ! Badger just posted a picture of him and I fell in love, I was extremely lucky , we didn't know anything about him, exept that he was an alley cat, I tought he could be a bit feral , but no.

I see those other homeless beautiful cats, and think , what's one more ? I have to think about this.

Everytime someone post about a cat in need of a new family, I tought about it. And I love Badger's rescues , she knows all their personalities and she takes such good care of them. She takes them from the streets, gives them loving and vet care. I wouldn't think of adopting a cat anywhere else.

And I was so lucky with Monsieur le chat , I know I can't expect to find another one just like him , all cats are different. But I know some of them would make a perfect (of purrrfect) addition to our family.

Don't get too excited , I will probably choose another name but one that will rhyme with the previous name. Yes I love Arlo's look, but I will be looking at their personalities also. I can't wait !
