Are you looking for a quiet, dignified companion to spend your days with? Do you have a calm and loving household? Then we’ve got the cat for you!
He’s a 7yo settled house cat looking for a steady home to be spoilt in. He is fairly independent and would be fine on his own during the day, but if you're home he enjoys following you from room to room and getting an occasional head scratch. He's fantastic at supervising the activity of the house and to remind you in true cat fashion that he's number one. Fergus mainly just wants one-on-one snuggle time each night (in fact, he can get quite insistent that he gets his night time snugs!) He has a generally calm character, though he will perk up for a few specific toys (like dangling a ribbon in front of him).
He bonds strongly with people and is very affectionate in the quiet way that cats often are, he may not be rambunctious like a kitten but he makes up for it with his faithful loyalty. He could live with other cats but would prefer to be on his own, that way he can have aaalll the head scratches and all the prime sun baking spots. He could live with older children if they respected his boundaries but we think he would be happier in an adult home (adults are usually better trained in the art of cat rules aka if I meow whilst sitting next my full food bowl, it means it's empty, no matter how full you humans seem to think it is!).
All up Fergus is super handsome, loyal, faithful, a terrific companion cat, no fuss with just the right amount of adorable floof. He would make such a great addition to any cat savvy household that needs more purr in its life.
If you would like to apply for Fergus please fill in an adoption application with as much as detail as possible.

Cat Adoption Policy
Please note: completing an adoption form does not guarantee that an adoption will take place.
Melbourne Animal Rescue Inc. reserves the right to choose the most suitable applicant and reject those deemed less suitable.
Occasionally, there can be multiple applications for the one animal and there is no 'First In - Best Dressed' - the multiple applications are vetted for the most suitable.
We do our utmost to contact all applicants, including those who are unsuccessful, to infom them of the result but as we are staffed by volunteers, most of whom work full time, occasionally responses are overlooked and we apologise in advance if this occurs.
MAR does not adopt to those who are not permanent residents of Australia.
Also note the following strict policies, designed for the cat’s health and safety;
- White cats will only be adopted to indoor only homes
- Cats with pale noses/ear tips will only be adopted to indoor only homes
