Smokey is a black and white domestic short-haired male cat. He is just one big hunk of love, only 7 yrs old!! He''s beautiful with a jet black coat, four white paws, a white chest and belly, pink nose, and cute white markings on his black face. He has amazing green eyes that stare at you and say `aren''t you going to pet me some more?`, `where are you going?`. He is the most lovable cat!...like a big teddy bear to cuddle up to! I approached him in the shelter this morning...he was under his bed, I called `Smokey` and saw the face look out at me...I gave him a little rub behind the ear then a head came out, I gave that a pet, and a paw came out, then another, both kneading, then half a body crawled out, paws kneading on his blanket, then the whole big purring teddy bear was out! He''s so darn cute. His past owner says he was wonderful with the six year old grandson, good with kids in general. He even sleeps under the blankets with them! He''s very mellow and tolerant and loves attention, very social. He has no history with other cats or dogs so it''s recommended that he remain an only pet if possible. He''ll own up to it by rubbing, purring, showing you all the affection he can. I hear he loves to lay next to you on the couch with his head on your lap. Sounds like adorable him. He''s a big boy so a moderate lifestyle rather than high action is suitable. He''s a 100% indoor boy. He loves to be brushed which is no surprise...petting with an instrument : ). If you have time, please do come and meet him. He''ll greet you affectionately.
