"Hi there, my name is Dewie Dooley, but you can just call me Dewie for short. I’m a little bit shy, but I really have come a long way since I first got to the shelter. I was very nervous around people and would usually hide up on a high perch. Now, I welcome petting, but I’m still not as outgoing as some of the other cats. Still, I deserve some love, don’t I? Please come visit me!
I have been diagnosed with the feline leukemia virus (FeLV). Please don’t let that deter you from adopting me. FeLV is only transmittable to other cats, but not people or dogs. I need to live indoors and have a high-quality diet for senior cats, but other than that, I am not high maintenance. I can live with other FeLV cats, but I’d be fine as an only cat as well.
I know that sometimes shy, black cats can be overlooked, but please give me a chance! I am a sweet guy with a big heart, and once I know that I’m safe, I am a lover and a snuggler! I’m looking forward to meeting you soon!
Please call the shelter to arrange a time to meet Dewie!
