Squawky - ADOPTED!

IMG_0842.JPG

Introducing Squawky. This youngster has had a sad start to his life and is looking for a family that can help him blossom. When Squawky was a kitten, he was left behind when his owner moved away. Someone else tried to take care of him but with multiple other pets in the house, it was difficult for him to get the care and attention that he needed. Consequently, at 9 months old, Squawky is a very timid boy who has had limited experiences.

Squawky is a sweet kitty who is very nervous of new anything. He is very scared and shy when it comes to any sign of change but he gradually he warms up with acceptance and becomes friendly. Squawky likes pets, seeks attention, and enjoys playing with red laser dot & wand toys. He can be quite chatty and likes to serenade his foster mom with meows, squeaks, and chatter about new things that he is interested in.

Squawky grew up around other cats and a cat-friendly dog, and he seems to be lonely when left on his own. He will be happiest in a home where there are other pets to keep him company. Although he may come to be OK with them in time, right now Squawky is not comfortable around children. He is using to living indoors only.

It will take Squawky some time to become comfortable in a new home so his new family will need to have patience, and ideally some experience working with shy cats. He will likely adjust faster in a home with confident cats that are friendly toward Squawky and toward people, to help show him that just because something is new, it doesn't have to be scary.
