My name is Marty and I am one of the sweetest cats you could ever meet! I love getting attention and being fussed over. I even enjoy a good belly rub once I really get to know you."
"I came to Wayside as a stray. I was very scared at first. The wonderful staff and volunteers worked their magic with me, and because they were so patient with me, I am now ready for my forever home.
I am looking for someone that will be very patient and give me plenty of time to adjust to my new surroundings and to my new family. It is recommended that I be given my own room for a minimum of 2 weeks, just to allow me enough time to adjust to a new environment, sounds, smells, and to you, too.
I feel safer starting out in 1 room. More than that could be too overwhelming for me at first. Once I trust you, though? Man, it's a done deal!
I am what is called a "Velcro kitty". I am like glue to you a lot of the time, so if you love *ahem* "clingy" cats (I prefer to call it Loyal), well...that's me!
I also need a calm, quiet home as sudden noises or movements can still scare me at times. I prefer a home without younger children. Anyone over, oh, abotu ten I think I can handle.
I also love to play, especially with cat wand toys! I love to chase after them! Faraday told me they ROCK, and he was SO right!!
There's one more thing you should know about me: I'm FIV-positive. It's no big deal, really it's not. It just means that my immune system is somewhat compromised, so it's important that I get regular veterinary checkups and, if I do get sick, that I get veterinary care.
I hope I will get to meet you soon!
**Marty is currently staying in a foster home. If you'd like to schedule a time to meet him, please call Wayside Adoptions at (816)986-4426. Thanks!**
