- Loves food, rubbing on your legs and chatting with you

- May be a cat who likes to hang out next to you

- Likes to go at his own pace when getting to know new people and places; might take him some extra time to feel comfortable

- Looking for a quiet, mature home to help keep his brain calm when the world gets exciting around him

- May be happiest as the only cat in his home, or could potentially do well with another cat of a similar age and activity level after a slow introduction

- Will benefit from lots of mental engagement

This cat has shown signs of overstimulation while in the shelter. Lots of handling, playing with hands, and excessive petting can cause them to overstimulate, which can result in scratching and/or biting. This cat is looking for experienced cat owners who will watch this cat's body language while interacting to note signs of overstimulation (tail waving, fur rippling, dilated pupils, ears turned back and quick body movements) and be willing to respect their boundaries. This cat will also benefit from interactive toys such as wands and ball spinners while playing. We are happy to speak with you more when you visit and can provide post-adoption resources. If you can give this cat mental stimulation, patience and space when they need it, please consider adopting! They would love to be your sidekick and buddy for life!
