Shiraz (or Shirri, as we affectionately call him), is a sweet little boy cat in need of a loving family. He's a bit shy, and likes to hide in boxes and square spaces. However, with a calming influence and a bit of patience, he'll show you what an awesome, funny little guy he is.
One of his favorite games is chasing a knotted plastic bag around the house. Most mornings and evenings, he'll walks around with his butt and tail in the air, politely directing your attention to his empty food bowl. He's a sensitive little guy, and is very well behaved. He's patient and gentle, and might be a good fit with kids.
Shirri has an ongoing eye infection, and takes a half-capsule of L-lysine with his morning and evening meals.
In the last few weeks that Shirri has been with us, he's transformed with a scared little kitty hiding in his litterbox to an affectionate, curious little thing. He's completely stolen our hearts and we hope that his adopting family will give him his forever home, and that he'll never have to see a shelter again.
