My story

Hi, Mr. Whiskers here reporting for duty as your new best buddy. I’m a handsome brown tabby guy with silky soft fur and dreamy green eyes. My owner passed away and I miss her; I’d like to find another loving home soon. I’ve lived my life as an only cat and I have to remain that way, because I am FIV positive. But don’t worry, I’m completely healthy and don’t need anything special except a low stress environment (check, I’m pretty calm) and quality nutrition (double check!) I love to eat my delicious food and of course I love a good treat now and then – don’t you?

My foster family loves how friendly, outgoing and curious I am. I love, love rubbing and petting and hanging out near my people. I'm very social and enjoy meeting new people too. (Except for the really short loud ones they call toddlers. I make myself scarce around those.) Exploring every nook and cranny is irresistible to me. Sometimes I get the crazies and like to run around and bat my toy mice. Most of the time though I’m content to look out the window or curl up for a cat nap.

If you have a quiet home in need of a gentle and special companion who’s ready to chill with you, I think I might be the guy for you! Shall we find out?
