Pet of the Week: Broccoli

Meet Broccoli, Tysons’ latest Pet of the Week. Broccoli has had a tough life, but he’s learning to trust again and is looking for a quiet home.

Here’s what Broccoli’s friends at 4Paws Rescue Team had to say about him:

Broccoli is a pretty boy who has been through a lot. You can see in his eyes that life hasn’t been so easy. He came to a shelter with an injured leg that had to be amputated but is now living in a foster home with a 4Paws volunteer. After these last few months, Broccoli now knows how good it can be living inside and being loved, and he is looking for a quiet forever home with a patient and loving adopter.

Despite his past troubles, Broccoli is learning to trust again and shows his affection in many ways. In his foster home, he follows his foster mom around, rubbing against her legs, laying down in front of her and staring at her nonstop.

To get your attention, Broccoli will make a cute little chirping noise and likes to greet you with a meow and with his head raised up, looking for head scritches. He loves to rub against everything around him, including his humans. He will roll around on the floor, showing off his tummy, as a sign of trust. He is still a bit cautious of new people, fast movements and being touched on his backside, but with a patient adopter he will continue to become more confident.

Even though Broccoli doesn’t have his left back leg, that hasn’t made him any less mobile. He can run, go up and down stairs, and get on and off the couch. He likes being able to look out windows.

Broccoli is highly motivated by wet food and will follow you around until he is fed. He has perfect litter box habits. In his foster home, he gets along with the two female cats who live there. He will do best in a home without rambunctious pets or children.

Broccoli came to 4Paws from Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter in Maryland. His estimated birth date is March 2014. He is neutered, current on vaccinations, has tested negative for Feline Leukemia and is microchipped.

Are you and Broccoli the perfect match?
