Why Not Me? Meet Stitch!

By Colleen Williams
March 21, 2018 • 2 min. read

We’ve partnered with Pawsitive Alliance for the #WhyNotMePets campaign to give difficult-to-home pets an extra paw up. These lovable pets are ready to find their forever homes.


Age/Gender/Size: 4 years; Male; Medium

Breed: Domestic Longhair/Mix

Likes: Purring; being the center of attention; every person he meets!

Dislikes: High-stress living situations

Special Considerations: Urinary supplements for crystals and special diet for bladder and urinary issues; small amount of nerve damage (please ask Homeward Pet Rescue for more details)

Stitch is a friendly and mellow four-year-old Tuxedo cat with the most gorgeous green eyes. He is sociable, affectionate, and always willing to snuggle up on your lap for some extra attention.

This handsome kitty is also very smart! Stitch has been working with the awesome Cat Behavior Team at Homeward Pet Adoption Center to learn multiple commands. He knows sit, sit pretty, high five, and is learning to jump over arms. We have been told he will even go to a ‘mark’ with a pointer. 

Stitch has found that the shelter environment is a little too noisy (not to mention stressful) for him. He started anxiety medication to help him adjust to new situations, and may benefit from staying on this medication long term. He will likely thrive in a quiet home with teens and adults that can give him a regular and predictable schedule. Stitch has lived with cats and dogs before and may do well with very mellow cats and dogs after a slow introduction.

Stitch has an history of urinary issues and is on urinary supplements to prevent crystals from forming, as well as a wet food diet that helps to support his urinary tract. Stitch has been fully vetted, microchipped and spayed. Contact Homeward Pet Rescue at 425.488.4444 to learn more about adding Stitch to your family!

Every Wednesday, Healthy Paws will highlight a new pet from Pawsitive Alliance’s #WhyNotMePets campaign. Visit the #WhyNotMePets page for a list of adoptable dogs and cats.
