Hello! My name is Tarriful I'm named after a Star Wars Wookie. I am a very handsome 1 year old DMH black & white Tuxedo neutered male. I am listed as Special Needs because I am very shy and it takes a while to gain my trust. Once I trust you I can be sweet and playful, but I don't want to be petted yet or handled. I would love a playmate (human and/or other animal). I get along great with Crybaby, a very large DSH Tuxedo and Boxer, another long-haired Tuxedo in my room. Two cats I used to live on the streets with, Tootie & Enya are also at the shelter and I would get along with them as well. We almost look like we are related, but we are not. I rescued from a trailer park where someone was trapping cats and having them put down. I need a calm, quiet home where I can take my time learning to trust humans and come out of my shell. I don't know about dogs, but I'm young enough that I might be able to adjust to a calm, cat-friendly dog with proper introduction techniques. I should not be around young children, but should be O.K. with older, calm, cat-friendly older children who will play with me, but not frighten me. Come meet me to see if you have the patient, calm, lasting home I need.
