Emerson is a sweet, playful companion who loves attention: head rubs, chin scratches, whichever way you want to pet him, he’s ready for more! He was a stray who learned to love the affection he can get from people, and now he’s ready to find his forever-home so he can keep getting as much attention as possible. He’s very creative — in Emerson’s view, anything and everything can be a toy!

His foster family adores him, and says: Emerson is super cuddly, playful, friendly and curious. He has the energy level of a kitten! He’s always ready to play for as long as possible, any time of day. He loves to nibble and lick when he’s excited. He greets us at the door to welcome us home and follows us around the apartment. He loves sleeping with us and always wants to be around us, next to us or on top of us. Other than the vacuum cleaner, I have yet to see him be afraid of anything.

Wouldn’t you like to meet this handsome buddy?
