About Auggie

Adoption Fee: $20
American Shorthair / Domestic Cat
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Auggie and his siblings were found under a porch and brought to an animal shelter, Spring 2016. They were too young to be taken in, but a Good Samaritan took the litter into her home to bottle feed them for the summer. Once they were of age, I adopted Auggie's sister, Gigi in September 2016. The rest of his siblings found homes except for him. The Good Samaritan asked if I could take him. She already had 5 cats, & didn't have room for him. I accepted, thinking, 'what's one more?' I had his sister and one other cat, so with Auggie that's three cats in the house. Well, it turns out I took on more than I could manage. I work full time and have a toddler to care for. Auggie was misbehaving, causing unbelievable messes, destroying my daughter's toys even though he has plenty of cat toys. He dominated the other two female cats when it came to mealtime. It's gotten to the point where it's causing a rift in my marriage. It's not Auggie's fault. I just don't have the time to train him and keep him properly. He's bored and food driven. He managed to get the bag of cat food from the pantry by snagging the bag and pulling it under the door. He's broken a lamp, chewed the hand off of a barbie doll, and many other no- no's. He won't stay off the counters and every discipline technique I try doesn't seem to phase him. So, now he is either outside or locked in the laundry room when it's below 32 degrees, which is not a way to live. Outside cats only live 3-5 years... there are foxes, coyote, other dogs, cats, cars, & poison outside. I fear something will eventually get him. Auggie needs and deserves a better home. He really is very loving, friendly and laidback. He loves to play, and he has the loudest purr. As you can see from the photo, he is very tolerable with small children. He's a big boy and loves food. The last vet appointment this Spring, they said he could use to loose a couple of pounds. He's ok with his sister and my other female cat, but I can't say the same for cats he doesn't know. I recently found out that he's terrorized the neighbor's dog, who is way bigger than Auggie. SMH- I don't know what to say about that. He doesn't seem fearful of anything, which is good and bad. The lawnmower and vacuum don't seem to phase him. He didn't like the outside at first, but he has since discovered the thrill of the hunt. He has successfully hunted chipmunks and lizards. He would be a great barn cat.
