Peter Rabbit is a soft, black kitty who is very playful, social, and smart. He uses his soft trill to communicate with his foster family and other cats. Practicing his hunting and chasing skills is one of his favorite activities. Peter Rabbit also likes to hide behind corners and wait for a fellow foster cat or dog to come by - then he goes in for the chase! His favorite toy is a string toy that he is very good at catching.

Peter Rabbit is looking for a loving and patient home. Peter Rabbit is a Manx kitty, which means he was born with a genetic mutation that left him without a tail! This gene, because it shortens and fuses the spine, can also lead to Manx Syndrome, which causes varying forms of incontinence. For Peter, this means that he does not always make it to the litter box in time when he has to go #2 (though he does urinate in the box all the time). Because of this, Peter Rabbit is on a dry, grain-free diet of Nutro's Natural Choice kitty kibble to keep his stools healthy and solid (readily available at Petsmart, Petco, etc.) Occasionally, Peter will need his bottom cleaned, and as you can imagine, this is a sensitive area for him as part of his Manx-ness. Peter also sometimes knuckles a hind leg and has an abnormal gait, but as mentioned earlier, this does not mean he isn't able to run & chase with the best of them!

Peter Rabbit also has slight vision impairment. He can see just fine in a familiar area, but sometimes bumps into things if he's unfamilar with his surroundings. Peter Rabbit likes other cats a lot and enjoys playing with his fellow feline foster siblings. He also gets along with dogs. He likes to play with the dog in his foster home and respects the limits she sets on their playtime. Peter Rabbit also loves people - he will cuddle and purr with his foster family when he's done with a play session! Come meet this handsome boy today and hear his trills for yourself!

Peter Rabbit has tested negative for FeLV/FIV, is neutered, has been vaccinated vaccinated, treated for worms/fleas, and microchipped. He also comes with a 30-day health insurance plan.
