Freddie is a healthy, friendly, easygoing guy who has spent his whole life as the resident "therapy cat" in a home for mentally ill adults. Freddie's care has been dependent on the funds of this non-profit social services agency. As of this month, the state dramatically decreased this organization's budget, and the powers that be have decided poor Freddie is a luxury they cannot afford. If not for the kindness of the home's employees who fought to defer Freddie's immediate removal, Freddie would have been dumped at the city pound.
Freddie would be great for a family, as he is accustomed to living with lots of people. He grew up with other cats, and gets along with dogs. Freddie is also quite a character. He is currently an indoor-outdoor cat who loves going on walks with his housemates (and even the neighborhood dog!), although we know these cats can become perfectly happy staying inside. He also loves to ride shotgun in the car! Although he is not a lap cat, he loves being petted, and sleeping in bed with people. He is a sweetheart who brightens the day of everyone he meets.
Please consider Freddie for adoption. After all he's given to his human friends, he deserves a safe and happy forever home of his own.
