My story

Guava is a sweet boy who is going to need a home with a lot of patience. He should go to an adult-only home. A home where he can come out of his shell. This could take 2 weeks or 2 months Adopters must not put a lot of pressure on him to come around...only when you do see him, offer him treats and try playing with him with not chase or corner him. Having another feline friend would be great, but not an aggressive one. He is also used to dogs, but calm dogs. Once he gains your trust he will sit with you and lay by your side, yet still a little independent. What it all comes down to is patience...if you think you have them and want to give this sweet little guy a home, fill out an application online and someone will get back to you soon!
