Stitch the cat is looking for a new home in the Montréal area

Stitch is an adorable cat: he’s a cuddly, playful ball of love who meows very little, and will come and sleep with you. He learns quickly, and with a few treats and rewards, it’s easy to get him used to your lifestyle. As he’s very greedy, he’s receptive to training with treats 😉
Stitch can be handled without aggression, which makes him easy to care for (nail trimming, administering medication) and makes him ideal for homes with children. In fact, Stitch lived with another cat, so at some point he got used to sharing his territory!

On the health front, Stitch is a 7-year-old cat who recently had all his teeth extracted for gingivostomatitis, which could cause him chronic pain. As he has no teeth, Stitch eats mainly wet food. For the moment, he’s not medicated, but he may need more intensive veterinary care than a cat with no medical concerns. We recently noticed a small scratch on his neck, which could be a temporary injury or an allergic or skin reaction due to the discontinuation of his medication. It’s hard to say at the moment.

In summary from a behavioural point of view, Stitch is an easy-going, affectionate cat who can learn a lot (being in harness, doing click training, learning not to scratch furniture) but who requires more sustained means (of time and potentially money) from a medical point of view.
