They call me Grayson. Everyone who sees me says "OMG, what a beautiful cat! Don't they know I am an alpha male? I am Handsome, and I know it.
When we first meet, I may be a little nonchalant. But, if I like you, I just might sit next to you or, if I really like you, I’ll sit on your lap and allow you to massage me. I know what you’ll say when you touch me, "His fur is so luxurious". I take very good care of my appearance. There’s a lot of pressure when your only outfit is a velvet, gray tuxedo.
My friend, Oscar, is my best bud. We’d like to stay together, if possible. As I said, I’m an alpha male. He’s not. So he lets me be the boss.
Sometimes, I get very scared and I act crazy. The first time I went inside, I freaked out and went berserk. But, now, I love being inside where it is safe and clean and my paws stay much cleaner using a litterbox than digging in the dirt.
Although I may take a little time to trust you, I am a very loving, gentle companion. If you don’t have any other pets, Oscar and I would love to be a part of your family.
I am FIV+, but don't let that scare you - I can live safely with spayed/neutered, FIV- cats inside without any problems. Ask my adoption screener and she can give you all the information you need. You can also Google FIV+ cats and learn about us. We are awesome cats!! Seriously? Do I look unhealthy? Do I look like a cat that fights? Of course not!! I can't wait to meet you!!
