Andy was rescued from rural Quebec and brought to Toronto by Toronto Cat Rescue. He is not fussy about food, is good on his own, and plays with his toys by himself. He is good with other cats as long as they are not aggressive with him and he is probably OK with dogs who are laid back and not too curious about him!
Andy is a gentle giant. Underneath all that soft fur is a sweet and quiet nature that is timid and very shy. Andy has a bit of fearfulness and is in the process of learning to trust humans. He may hiss at his people pals if he feels unsure of their intentions, but he is not aggressive.
Andy needs an experienced and patient adopter who is willing to work with him to bring out his trusting side. But once his trust is gained, he will be a faithful and loyal friend. Andy will probably do best in a small home or apartment where he has a space to feel secure but where he can also be in close proximity to his food, water and litterbox, as he is unlikely to roam at first. Andy is looking for a home where he can finally feel safe and secure. Please contact TCR if you feel that you are the one for Andy!
