Mat is a member of the US National Guard preparing for an overseas assignment which will take him away from his Gowrie, IA, home from 7/31/2020 – 8/15/2021.  Mat is looking for a caring foster to open their home to his two cats, Lucy and Bear, while he’s away serving our country.

Lucy is a 3 year old, 6lbs, domestic short haired tuxedo cat.  Mat recently rescued Lucy when he found her pregnant and alone.  He helped facilitate the birth of her kittens, and will be taking her to have her spay and get updated on vaccines in the next month as COVID restrictions ease in his area.  Lucy is a sweet girl who gets along well with people after an adjustment period.  She can be pretty skittish at first, but warms up to be a very sweet and cuddly cat.  She would likely do well with other cats and gentle dogs and children.

Bear is a 4 year old, 15lbs, neutered male domestic short haired tabby cat.  Bear has been Mat’s companion for the past 3 years, since Mat rescued him as a stray.  Bear is pretty independent and will likely hide for much of the day.  He warms up to people who are able to respect his space and socialize with him at his own pace.  Bear loves to snuggle with Lucy and snooze the day away.  Bear has been aggressive with other stray cats in the past, but may do well with other indoor friends since he’s adjusted so well to Lucy this year.  PACT would recommend a slow introduction to any household pets to get everyone off on the right paw.
