about me

Pete is a great boy that just wants a loving home. He was living outside, fending for himself and trying to make the best of it. Sometimes he would peak in people’s windows, wishing he could have a comfortable and safe place to lay his head every night. But most of all, he wanted someone to love him.

Someone saw Pete living outside, so she started feeding and caring for him. When she took him to the vet for medical treatment, they contacted us to see if we could find Pete the home he was wishing for. We said we would be happy to do that for him.

Pete is a very sweet cat that loves to be petted. He loves attention and he especially loves it when the kids come to read to him; it’s one of his favorite things! He is also very playful and enjoys chasing feather wands. At times Pete can get over-stimulated and get a little nippy when you pet him, but not in a mean or aggressive way. He has just never lived the life of a house cat. We are hoping once in a loving home, he won’t do that, but his adopter needs to be aware of this. Other than that, he is super loving and social. So if you are looking for a young cat to join your family, why not consider Pete?

Pete lives in a Suite so he is part of our It’s a “Suite” Deal adoption special through the end of the year! His adoption fee is WAIVED and he goes home with a 6-week supply of his special food: Blue Buffalo Limited Ingredient. If you would like more information about him, please email adopt@goodmews.org


I am not good with other cats
medical notes

Pete has a condition known as stomatitis which causes inflammation in his mouth. His teeth have been removed, which has helped a lot. He will need to be monitored for this condition. Pete is also on a special diet due to a sensitive tummy.

Pete is FIV+, but don’t let that scare you! FIV+ cats can live long and healthy lives. They can also live safely with FIV negative cats. FIV is spread through severe bite wounds, so it is important that your kitties get along. To learn more about FIV, please read the articles under the Advice tab.
