ADOPT ME: Friendly Forrest Gump needs more peaceful home

Proving that 'life is like a box of chocolates' (and you never know what you're going get), arrival of energetic puppy has left Forrest the cat feeling quite stressed

NewmarketToday, in partnership with the Ontario SPCA Provincial Education & Animal Centre, brings you a regular feature highlighting special pets in need of adoption.

Forrest Gump came into our care in January in need of a loving home. He had been in his home since he was a kitten, but the addition of a new, rambunctious puppy left Forrest feeling quite stressed and agitated. His family asked us to help us find a loving home where he could be the only animal.

Forrest can be a little nervous at first and may take a little extra time to settle into his new home. He would be best suited in a quieter home, where he is the only animal.

Forrest is a friendly cat who enjoys laying on the top of his cat tower and receiving head scratches from staff. Like all majestic house panthers, Forrest likes to engage in hunting games and the laser toy is his favourite! He is also smart and enjoys fishing for treats from his food puzzle.
