Baxter is a handsome black and white shorthair, young (about 3 yrs old) and one of the longest residents in the rescue. He is a solid healthy boy and can be intimidating to other cats. He is cat and dog-selective so he'd be best in a home with no cats, dogs, or small children. He is smart, but only will let you hold or pet him for a short period of time. The cuddling is on his terms. He is also independent and likes to just do his thing, especially if it is to hang out on his cat tree. Baxter is available to a home that can give him safe outdoor time, but this is case by case and it may help him release his energy. Baxter would love a catio or screened in porch where he can entertain himself with observing birds and outside activity. All cats are at least 8 weeks old at time of adoption, are spayed/neutered, FeLV/FIV tested, dewormed, microchipped, vaccinated (FVRCP and rabies - if at least 16 wks old), and given a starter dose of flea/tick/heartworm prevention. Adoption fee applies. Adoption application, interview, and home check required to be considered for adoption. No declawing policy and indoor homes only. Applications at www.rescueangelssomd.com.
