Description: Beautiful short-hair silver Manx (striped) tabby (no tail! He is a "stumpie" - he has a little stump of a tail but that's it - he was born that way).
Personality: Timon is an extrovert and a snuggler! He loves people and animals, and is inseparable from his brother Pumbaa (also a Manx). He's lived with kids, other cats, and dogs and loves them all. He greets his foster family at the front door every time! He's energetic and playful but when he wants snuggles only his humans will do. He is a happy and affectionate kitty ready to find his forever home along with his brother.
Animal History: Dropped off at Caswell shelter in Feb 15 with his brother; in foster care ever since. Timon exhibited some of the symptoms of Manx Syndrome in his kittenhood. Read this article.
He has successfully undergone treatment and is symptom-free, but because of his history will require adopters who will be responsive and proactive about any future issues that might occur.
