Facts about Balsam

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
BALSAM is roughly 12 weeks old and looking for his forever family. This sweet boy was found in a wood pile with his mother and siblings and has obviously not been well socialized up until being caught. He is coming around quickly though, canned cat food and lots of gentle handling is the key to his heart! Balsam is going to need a home committed to giving him the time he needs to settle in and showering him with gentle affection. He will have medium to long hair that will require regular grooming to remain mat free. He will come with his first set of shots and a neuter contract and will be ready to move into his new home next week. If you think you have the love and patience Balsam needs then apply today at for a chance to meet him.
