Additional Details

Floyd and Mickey are Bonded Buddies. They'll be adopted as a pair.

BIG FAN OF: Being brushed and having his cheeks rubbed.

NOT A FAN OF: Dogs. He would be happiest in a home without them. Young kids also tend to be too much for him. However, he has done well with older, calmer kids so a mature home would be perfect.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Floyd is a quiet, loving lap cat with the sweetest, softest purr. He loves sitting with you on the sofa and having his soft fur brushed. He really just wants to be petted and loved. He and his buddy Mickey are the best of friends and adorable to watch. They are constantly rubbing against each other and giving each other head bumps! These two have lived with several other cats and have done well with them. Their foster family says they use their cardboard scratching pad very well and are very polite house guests.

OTHER REASONS HE'S SPECIAL: Floyd has been diagnosed with ceruminous hyperplasia, a condition where small cysts form within the ear. The cysts are benign and treatment is not warranted unless they become large enough to disrupt normal self-cleaning. There are treatment options you can discuss with your regular veterinarian if the cysts become an issue. We'd encourage you to contact your vet before adoption if you have questions.

DREAM HOME: With a calm, loving family looking for a pair of quiet, affectionate cats to spend their life with. These boys are the sweetest and deserve a home where they'll be loved forever.

HOW TO ADOPT: These cats are participating in our Shelter Cat Getaway program -- a program designed to give cats a vacation from the shelter and let them enjoy home life while they wait to be adopted. While vacation is fun, there really is no place like home, so please consider adopting these deserving cats! As part of this program, their adoption fee is just $75 for the pair! To learn more about these cats or schedule a time to meet them, please contact Carol at cgriglione@arl-iowa.org, or Betsy at bsalmon@arl-iowa.org.
