If you want to get to know me, don’t judge me in rush hour traffic. The heavy-footed, horn-honking, gesture throwing person is a far cry from my normal easygoing self. Yes I can be impatient at times when not on the road, but the stress of bumper-to-bumper traffic seems to draw out all my negative qualities and magnify them times one hundred.

A similar thing happens to some of the cats at adoption shows. The stress of being out of their comfort zone, being trust into a “Oh crap, I’m going to the vet” carrier, the car ride to the store, and being placed inside a crate in the middle of a noisy, dog-barking, people-talking -loud store brings out the worst in some cats.

Poppy Seed is one of those cats. A super affectionate, playful boy, Poppy Seed turns into grumpy cat at the adoption shows. He tucks himself into a little ball at the back of the crate and hisses as people walk by.

In his foster home, Poppy Seed is a high energy cat who loves to play. He runs and chases after the laser pointer. He loves to wrestle with his foster brother Tango. He will play fetch with his toy mouse for hours.

Poppy Seed is also very sweet. He enjoys lap time and snuggles. He loves to give head-butts. He has a cute little call when he wants attention.

Poppy Seed gets along well with the cats in his foster home. He was born in March 2013, he is up-to-date on all his vaccinations, is neutered, microchipped and is litterbox trained. For more information about Poppy Seed, please visit Almost Home Foundation's website at www.almosthomefoundation.org or email cats@almosthomefoundation.org

You can also visit Poppy Seed at one of Almost Home Foundation's adoption shows. Please remember that the Poppy Seed you meet at the show will not be the same sweet cat he is at home.
