Hello!  My name is Hopscotch!  I’m a happy-go-lucky, friendly, playful guy!  Foster Mom says I’m a world-class snuggler, and one of the most playful cats she knows!  I mean, I am pretty easy going.  When you go from living outside and having to fend for yourself for food and shelter to living indoors with all the love, warmth and food you could ask for, what’s there to get upset about?!  You want to pick me up and carry me around?  Okay!  You have giant dogs that will want to be friends with me?  I can work with that!  (One of my foster brothers is a Great Dane, and I even let him share my catnip!)  I’m really just so happy to be loved, again!

There are a couple of things you should know about me.  First, during my time outside, I did end up contracting FelV (you can learn more about this in my photos).  It’s not terribly uncommon for outdoor cats to carry this virus.  But I show no signs or symptoms!  Cats like me can still live long and healthy lives!  I also am a pretty unique cat.  Did you notice my “lucky paw”?  It’s called syndactyly, and it’s super rare!  I’m quite literally a one-in-a-million kitty!  There’s no medical or health issues associated with it.  It just happens once in a blue moon when the bones and tissues in a hand don’t separate properly during development.  It doesn’t cause me any pain, though!  I might not use that leg quite as much while walking around, but the vet thinks that’s just because that leg ended up a tiny bit shorter than the rest of them because of the way my paw developed.  If you bring me a wand toy, I’ll show you just how well my lucky paw can work!

­Enough about me, though.  Tell me more about you!!  Go ahead and fill out an app so we can learn more about each other and see if we’d be a good fit!  Hope to hear from you soon!!
