-Does not enjoy his feet being touched or belly rubbed, but will allow you to trim his nails
-Talkative: doesn't really meow but has a very cute chirp when you talk to him
About Ernie's Potential Forever Family:
-Able to feed wet food 2-3 times per day
-Single person, couple, or family with kids is fine! (he has a 6 year old human foster brother)
-Has other cats or no cats- Ernie got along well with the other cats and kittens in his foster home
-Has cat-friendly, preferably lower-excitement dog(s) or no dogs- Ernie met a couple visiting dogs in his foster home and just kept his distance
