Checkers is a gentle, quiet and mature 11-year-old tuxedo cat looking for a home that matches his personality. He was adopted from AFRP in 2007, and now needs a new home because his guardian can no longer care for him. He is a big boy, but has a gentle disposition and a meek little voice. He can be timid around people he does not know, but once comfortable he loves to cozy up to you while you read or watch TV. He'd like to be an indoor/outdoor cat in a safe environment, and would prefer to be a single cat in the home.
