This handsome little guy is Cheese, a gorgeous all gray boy that is dreaming of a wonderful home of his own. Cheese is a little under a year old and came to us in October 2015 when he was found as a lost and lonely stray. He was quite sickly for a while with parasites and an upper respiratory infection and spent some time in our hospital getting better. Once he got his clean bill of health, Cheese got noticed quickly and was adopted, only to be returned a week later for being "too shy". Our staff has been working with young Cheese to get him to come out of his shell and although he is still shy with meeting new people, once he gets to know you, he just loves you. He enjoys attention and being held by his good friends here but it will take some patience when he goes home to get used to his new family. Cheese is absolutely worth the effort though. He seems fine with other cats but dogs and small children may be a little much for him. This darling little guy is so deserving of a chance at a happy life where he will be loved and cared for the way he should be. File#25750 10/15/15
