Poor Kirby is a senior, and therefore hasn’t had much interest. He gets overlooked for the younger cats each and every time. The fact that he is frisky, and jumps like a teenager doesn’t seem to matter. His eyesight has weakened a bit, and so he is sometimes a little nervous if other cats come by and catch him off guard.
Kirby is a couch potato and loves his solitude. A few pets on his head and he's a happy camper. Want to give a senior a new life? Enjoy changing the world one sentient being at a time? We’ve seen how Kirby only gets better and better as he adjusts to new surroundings. He’s had enough of shelter life, and really yearns to be back in a home. Please come and say hello.
