Wally is a healthy boy and gets a clean bill of health from our vet. His teeth and gums are in great shape (when not, this can often be a sign of some immune problems). He has a beautiful thick, but short coat. Our vet thinks Wally is about eight years old.
Now for Wally's personality: This little man is super mellow. He is quiet, but not scared. We just have the feeling that he was on the streets for quite awhile and probably learned to be independent. But the longer he has been here the friendlier and more outgoing he has become. Now. when he hears a volunteer come in, he comes right out to get loving. He has made so much progress in the 14 months we've had him. We can only imagine that in a permanent home where he would get one on one attention, that he would blossom even more. We would love for him to go to a home, where someone can dote on him and let his sweet little personality grow and shine.
Wally never fights with the other cats, but he has never bonded with another cat, either. We do not know how he would do with dogs. ... probably if they were mellow and low activity level, he would be fine. We also think he would be okay with children over 8 or 9 years old, if they were quiet and gentle with him.
So, if you like a mellow feline to share you couch with you (and maybe a few potato chips?) Wally is the guy for you. Yes, Wally also loves human food. Probably due to his days of being a street cat, he loves human food!
