Valentine is a gorgeous black and white boy that is about 2 years old and ready for a fabulous home of his own to grow up in. He came to us when he was found in a trap by a local resident who began feeding and caring for him. When poor Valentine came in, he was positively terrified. So much so that we wondered if he was feral. Thankfully, with a little time, patience and good care, Valentine soon showed his true self, which happened to be beautiful inside and out. He just needed a little encouragement to come out of his shell and once he did, he never looked back. Valentine is one happy cat these days that loves life and everyone in it! He is incredibly sweet, outgoing and lovable. He is happy to get attention and is vocal when he wants you to notice him. Valentine is a total mush that is happy to roll around, weave himself through your legs, and do just about anything to get close to you. He seems perfectly fine with other cats too. This sweetheart is so deserving of a great home so if you can give him one, please come in and meet our Valentine. File#26986 1/20/17
