Facts about Starkey

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Meet Starkey! This handsome gentleman is around 5-years-old and came to DHA almost TWO YEARS AGO! He was sadly mistreated previously and had to recover from burns to his fur and skin. We don't know how this could have happened, but his wounds have since healed. He is now a big, quiet guy living his life in one of our cat rooms. He is often referred to as Papa Stark as he is wonderful with kittens! He is still a bit wary of new people, but can be convinced to come close if tempted with his favorite catnip. If he's feeling up to it, he will even chase wand toys for however long you will play with him! We are hoping someone will give Starkey a loving home where he can feel safe and loved again. Please come and meet him and once you look into his beautiful, soulful green eyes you may not be able to look or walk away. A home of his own for Christmas is our goal!

PS. Bring or ask for catnip when you come and he'll be all yours in no time!
