Additional Details

Nigel and Sweet Pea are Bonded Buddies. They'll be adopted as a pair.

- Super fun, young cat who loves wand toys and will play with them forever; also will make up his own games and play with his cat friends

- Arrived at the ARL very shy and undersocialized but has been making great progress in our care

- Food-motivated, so this will be a great way to form a bond with him; especially loves Churu treats and other cat treats

- Willing to approach and engage with you on his terms but may shy away if you initiate things; has improved a lot through working with our staff and volunteers and will benefit from a patient person who will keep working with him as he continues to build confidence

- Used to living with multiple other cats and may benefit from a confident cat friend to help show him the ropes

- Loves to hang out in the same room with you and watch what you're doing

- Takes time to warm up to you, so let him go at the pace he feels comfortable with; will thrive in a calm, relaxed home

This cat can be fearful and may need extra time to adjust to a new home. We've seen good progress here at the ARL, but don't be surprised if it takes several weeks for this cat to become comfortable in a new place. This cat may hide and just observe at first - maybe for quite a while - and that is perfectly normal. Young children are too much for this cat right now, so we are highly recommending a quiet, mature home. We are happy to provide post-adoption resources. If you can give this cat extra time, patience and TLC, please consider adopting! It will be so rewarding to watch them gain confidence and start enjoying all the good things in life!
