Playful! Adorable! Courageous!
The first thing you may notice about Pegasus is his adorably petite build. Don't be fooled - he is full grown, but will stay small and cute forever! (A kitten lover's dream.) Pegasus is unaware of his cute, fun-sized body; he is adventurous and will stroll around with much larger kitties and pups - he's one of the gang!
Pegasus has an affinity for play time. He is fond of his bird on a string toy. He'll imagine he's a wild hunter, waiting to pounce on his prey! Pegasus is also known to chase around his favorite ball all around the house. He has excellent manners and will only scratch his cardboard scratching post. He hopes you are catnip friendly because he gets jazzed when you break it out!
If you can't find Pegasus, try looking up, up, and away! Pegasus can jump and leap atop high places and spaces. He has mastered his 3-story cat fort, conquered the counter tops, and is a wonder with window sills.
Pegasus has adorably knock-kneed back legs, and as you can tell, they don't affect his mobility at all! They are likely congenital, and also cause his fecal incontinence. He requires some extra medical care, which may include a regulated diet and/or medications. He is litter box trained and gladly uses the litter box for urinating, but we are still working to find a diet that helps him control his poop. For more information, please contact APA!
You'll know when Pegasus is happy because he has picked up a very dog-like trait of wagging his tail! He's not much of a talker, and you won't hear a peep out of him unless he's feeling lonely and wants some cuddles. He likes a good head scratch and a friendly face rub. He will cuddle in your lap but not for too long as he is intrigued by his environment. For now, Pegasus is ready to seize the world and see what it has to offer him!
A home with a patient and loving cat owner would be ideal for this sweet boy! Pegasus would do well in just about any home. He's very flexible! Pegasus is unfazed by the bigger cats and the dog in his foster home, and at his previous foster home he was around children and got along with them well.
