This big black beauty is Farina, a handsome man that is about 6 years old and would love for you to come and meet him. Farina came to us when his owner became ill and could no longer care for him. It stinks to be uprooted from the only home you've ever known and brought to an unfamiliar place, but Farina is not letting it get him down at all and began making friends immediately. This mushy man is very outgoing and just loves everyone he meets. He is super sweet and very playful, and is always ready to bat around some toys with you or just snuggle on your lap. Farina is a very loving and affectionate feline that seeks out attention from his friends and gets his purr going as soon as he meets you. It's tough to be down when Farina is around! He butts heads with other cats so unfortunately he must be an only cat, but he loves people of all ages, and would easily stroll right into your heart and home and fit right in. Please come meet our Farina and give him the great home that he's dreaming of. File#24772 5/27/15
