First I must tell you that I have the most beautiful blue eyes and I was named after Frank Sinatra, I am told that I am quite handsome and most charming!  I showed up on the porch of a manufacturing facility in Garland one day and never left. I figured I would win the people over by being very friendly, rubbing and loving on everyone who came to the door or would give me any attention. I finally went home to a safe environment with access to veterinary care (well the vet part wasn't so much fun). I've adjusted well to being an indoor cat very quickly.  It's nice to finally feel safe!

I've only been around a very cat friendly, passive senior Great Dane. I likes to hide and ambush her!   I'm OK with older children. I don't know if I would like being around young or small children. I can get pretty feisty when I'm playing. A young child may not recognize when I'm getting too wound up during play time and need to be left alone to calm down. I'm just not used to that sort of thing!

I'm a good boy who stays off of the counters and tables, but will occasionally jump up on the bed, sofa or a chair. I prefer to be on the floor. I'm working on not scratching the sofa and carpet. I bang on the door if I wants to be in the room with you. I haven’t tried to mark anything, I'm just not that kind of guy!

I'm very sweet and loving. I haven’t had any problems with anyone who has come to the house. I can be a little shy though. All I want is to have my head scratched all of the time - I'm quite the attention hog. I'm still young, so I go into jungle cat mode a couple of times a day and during the night.  I love to chase practice golf balls and hide in the guest bedroom to ambush people as they walk down the hall. I do startle easily at times, most likely from being in the wild.  I don’t like the washer and dryer, or any household appliance that makes a noise I'm unfamiliar with. I did very well when I had my nails trimmed.

Our Adoption Process...

Texas CARES' cats and kittens ARE NOT FOR SALE.
Cats and kittens are adopted by completing an adoption application that will be reviewed by the Texas CARES volunteer staff. Potential adopter(s) will be notified of the status of their application. This process can take 48-72 hours. Applications for adoption can be obtained from a Texas CARES volunteer or found on our website: Adoption fees are tax deductible donations.
