My story

Hello Ladies! Allow me to introduce myself, I am White Cheeks, because, well, I have white cheeks. I am a senior gentleman, looking for a sweet lady to be smitten with me and my charm. My human mom is really worries about me in my golden years. I am about 12 years old. I have lived a great life, hanging out in the yard, watching the world go by, but come in for dinner and snuggle up in my home. I am a pretty big boy, have some of the characteristics of Norwegian Forest or Maine Coon. Once comfortable, I am pretty easy-going guy, but, like humans, as we cats age, stuff happens. I was diagnosed with glaucoma, so I have some eye drops that I get in the morning – seems to work pretty well. We have a morning ritual that we go thru – I get the drops in my eye and then I get a treat (so, that’s easy). I am also on prescription food (Hill's Science Diet Multi dry food) for urinary crystals, and that’s pretty easy to manage. My human mom says that she thinks I might have been abused by men before I came to live with her (10 years ago) because I am afraid of men. I do love the ladies though. Patience with me because of my trust issues will be a real plus. Older, cat respecting kids would be better. I do need to be an only cat. The little ones are a bit noisy and might not be able to recognize my ''cat signals'' if I get annoyed. I am current on my vaccines and very good with the litter box. I will also be microchipped as a part of the adoption process.June 2, 2023, 7:21 am

More about this rescue

Founded in 1993, Second Chance Companions is a 501(c) 3 non-profit pet organization dedicated to helping animals in SW Washington and the Portland Metro area.

We are a humane, no-kill organization staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers.

Although we do not run an independent shelter, we feed, care for, adopt out, and spay & neuter as many animals as possible. In addition, we educate the community and are always seeking volunteers and resources that help us to accomplish our mission.

We have a small number of foster homes available, but also work with private owners who keep their pets while looking for homes for them.
