Meet Moose! (Picture heavy)

This is Moose. He is my first cat, I've always grown up with dogs. I adopted him through my local SPCA right after Christmas. His previous family left him there for being "too cuddly". Crazy people. I was looking for an older cat (Well, I wasn't really looking for a cat at all... I just go over occasionally to volunteer and get my fuzzy animal fix). I've always had older dogs. The shelter told me he was about 2 years old. My vet told me she pegged him around 9 months in January. So that makes him just under 1.5 years old right now.

He is about 13lbs right now, in January he was 12 and the vet wanted him to be closer to 11lbs. I know he's an adult, but I still feel like he's been growing slowly... I hope he doesn't get too much bigger!! He's been great with my parents' dogs. He enjoys going for car rides. He is also tolerating his leash rather well, it's a work in progress. His personality is pretty awesome. Not like any other cat I've had the experience of meeting. He's really mellow. Wants to hang out all the time. Nothing really phases him. You can do anything to him. And well, poor cat, I kind of do...

I'm actually contemplating seeing if he'd pass the requirements to become a certified therapy cat and we'll visit hospitals and retirement homes to visit people who miss their pets.

Without further adieu, here's Moose:

He is an awesome cat! You got lucky with him. Can't believe his former owners did not want him!
