Barry was rescued from an Iowa animal control facility where he was scheduled, along with his litter mates, to be euthanized. HELP stepped in and he made his way to safety in Illinois. He is very sweet and loves to hang out with his foster mom and dad. He will follow them from room to room, usually crashing on their laps. The rest of the time he is running around, playing with his litter mates, Copper and Rusty. His forever home will need to include another kitty. Since he is very curious and wants to see what is going on, you have to make sure he hasn’t climbed into the dryer or dish washer when you aren’t looking. He gets along with the other fosters in the house. He has not been around dogs, but with his sweet disposition he should be fine with a gentle dog. He is completely litter boxed trained, neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
