My story

Kip is a very handsome, gentle soul, who needs a hero. He would do best in a small home or a home where the basement is blocked off so he doesn't have anywhere to hide while he's getting settled. He would do best in a calm, quiet home. He is about 9 years old.

Kip was adopted many years ago, but returned when the family had a baby and Kip became so upset he started peeing on the baby blankets. We believe in full disclosure with our animals, which is why I won't hide the fact that he did that...but...we had no issues with this when he was at our pet adoption center. When we sent him to a foster home with one older person, he hid under the bed all the time. We eventually moved him to my home, where he is now, and put him on Prozac, which is inexpensive. There has been a miraculous change since the medication began working. Kip used to hide under a blanket all the time as if he was terrified of everything. Now, he meows when he wants attention and he'll greet me with head bumps, belly flops, and he'll lick my hair. He's a changed man. I do still have him isolated in his own room because he is terrified of one of my cats. He is fine with a couple other cats who go into his room to visit him while I'm cleaning and taking care of him.

Kip is a gorgeous boy who isn't a picky eater. I'm able to hide his small pill in a soft treat and he eats it. He is using his litterbox perfectly. Kip has lived with other cats and seems interested in mine. I believe he'd be OK with other friendly cats. I don't know about dogs, and he does look at mine through the screen with wide eyes.

Kip needs someone willing to give him the time he will need to settle into a new home and bond with a new human. He's been shuffled around to many places and doesn't feel a sense of security. A small home with limited spaces for him to hide would be best. He will need to learn trust and to feel safe in his new home.

If you think you have the perfect home for Kip, or just want to talk about him, please contact me at Beagmom1@yahoo.com. Thank you. **All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age. We believe in pediatric spay and neuter. All animals will be spayed or neutered, tested for FIV/FeLV or heartworm, given age-appropriate boosters and rabies, dewormed, flea treated, and anything extra that is needed to give this animal a wonderful forever life in a permanent home. Adoption fees are usually $50 for cats and between $150-$250 for dogs, unless the pet is sponsored or we are running a promotion. Please visit our website at sheltertohome.com for information on our adoption process.**September 27, 2022, 10:00 pm
