Corkscrew Alpha of a Kitty Needs You
Five-year-old Fusilli likes to rule the roost—he just needs a home to do it in.
New Jersey Aid for Animals board member Kelly Matthews, a Gloucester Township resident, submitted the following press release to Patch:
NJAFA has received a request for help with placement with "Fusilli."
This sweet tuxedo, Fusilli, came to them in September 2012 as a stray, and they have tried very hard to acclimate him into their home, however he is an "alpha" cat—aggressively territorial with their other two resident cats. He does very well with their 12-pound Eski-Pom dog, though! They named him after the "corkscrew" pasta because of his incredibly soft, wavy fur (feels like a chenille sweater) and extremely curly whiskers. The vet believes he is a Cornish Rex mix, approximately 5 years old.
Fusilli has a very sweet temperament, is affectionate and playful, and has a Harley motor of a purr! He has a very bold personality and shows very little fear of anything. He has an extremely hearty appetite, so food will have to be monitored—and yes, he is a professional food thief!
They will continue to foster Fusilli in their home in Haddon Township, NJ, until they can find him a more suitable home for him to rule—without any other cats. He is neutered, current with his vaccinations, has tested negative for FIV, FeLV and internal and external parasites, is now micro chipped and is ready to go!
