Meet Arnold Wise, a Norwegian Forest cat, and Alejandro Rockbridge, the domestic short-hair he’s taken under his fluffy paw.
Here is what 4Paws Rescue Team has to say about Arnold, who can be adopted on his own or with his foster sibling:
Meet Arnold (right), a Norwegian Forest cat with a gigantic good heart and outgoing disposition. He was rescued as a stray. Despite his difficult beginnings, Arnold is a super friendly kitty who can charm you with his larger-than-life personality. He loves human companionship and never says “No” to head and chin scratches. If you listened carefully to his talking, you would hear him say that he looks forward to a home with another gentle cat who is looking for a friend. Being an only cat would probably be too boring for Arnold!
Arnold is your ultimate family pet, even for first-time adopters. He can also do well in a household with children. All he really wants in return is love, love, and more love!
To boot, in his foster home, Arnold has become best buddy with Alejandro (left), another kitty who is waiting for his forever home. Indeed, they make a dynamic duo! The two sleep and cuddle together and Arnold gives Alejandro the boost of self-confidence that he needed. Arnold is the more outgoing of the two.
Both boys are shelter kitties, with Arnold from Wise County Animal Shelter and Alejandro from Rockbridge SPCA. In his ideal world, Arnold would love to be adopted with Alejandro, though he will definitely go for a forever home with another young, friendly and welcoming cat who is looking for a feline companion!
Arnold’s estimated birthdate is 11/01/2020. He is neutered, vaccinated, negative for FIV & FeLV, and microchipped.
Please e-mail us if you’re interested in adopting Arnold (ideally with, but also without Alejandro). Be sure to include your phone number in your message. Please limit inquiries to the Greater Washington, DC area, except for barn cats.
Alejandro was also rescued as a stray by a shelter in Central Virginia, according to 4Paws Rescue Team, which describes him as a “friendly and generous kitty” who would love to be adopted with his best buddy but is also open to new feline companions.
