BIG FAN OF: Being brushed. He adores it, but he'll also let you know when he's had enough.
NOT A FAN OF: Loud noises, including thunder and fireworks. He's also not comfortable around young children, so a more mature home will be best for him.
SPECIAL FEATURES: Houston loves cozy spaces like boxes or beds where he can curl up and sleep the day away. He can be a little shy at first, but warms up in time. He's a very sweet guy who will make himself comfortable in your lap or next to you. He can be playful and enjoys all types of toys, but he mostly likes relaxing and just hanging out. He has lived with other cats.
OTHER REASONS HE'S SPECIAL: He is declawed on all four paws.
DREAM HOME: A quiet home where he can just sit back and enjoy life.
This cat is participating in our Shelter Cat Getaway program -- a program designed to give cats a vacation from the shelter and let them enjoy home life while they wait to be adopted. While vacation is fun, there really is no place like home, so please consider adopting one of these deserving cats! As part of this program, their adoption fee is just $50 each (or $75 for a pair)! To learn more about this cat or schedule a time to meet it, please contact Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cindy at email@example.com.
