This handsome brown tabby has the ticked coat of a cougar, and the warm heart of a pussycat. He is 11 years old and healthy. His loving nature can be a little reticent at first, reflecting the instability of his life in the past 2 years. His original owner had him since kittenhood but had to give him back to CC4C when she lost her home. A loving young adopter was found, but her life situation required moving every few months into very restricted housing, and poor Shawn couldn't handle the insecurity. He's now happily fostered in a guest room with a young adult female, but would love a home where he can be showered with more attention, perhaps as the only cat (he has a tendency toward alpha behavior with others). Shawn loves being petted and scratched around his cheeks. If he wants you to continue, he'll gently pat your cheek with his paw. And he'll softly rub his cheek against yours as a sign of affection. Shawn has a sometimes-sensitive digestion and may throw up a bit if allowed to free-feed. Prefers a quiet home. This big charming guy is usually shown at Lafayette Pet Food Express on Saturdays from 1:00 - 4:00. But please contact Candace at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure he'll be available for you to meet and fall in love with this big, sweet boy. $100 adoption fee; or $50 senior-to-senior rate if adopter is over 55.
