JOEY - MALE
Joey is a 2 year old house cat. He is neutered and microchipped and has been in our shelter for over 3 months. His caring owner asked us to find him a new home as her circumstances changed and she could not take him with her. He was so timid and unsure and would hide once he was in our main cattery for close to 2 months. Fortunately, he has very slowly come out of his shell -- while he will still not let us pet him and will hiss if we come too close, we are delighted to see him not hiding and hanging about with the other felines in the cattery. Joey has always been a house cat (never outdoors), so we want to re-home him to the same environment. Joey is looking for an experienced cat owner who can take him under their wing and provide him with home comforts and understanding. He is a special boy in need of a special and understanding cat lover.
As you can see in the bottom photo (taken a week after his arrival), he is not a happy guy at present. He will need an experienced cat person to offer him a home -- someone that will allow him the time and space to feel at home once again.
