This is Louis! Louis came the the shelter with his friends after their owner could no longer care for them. He has lived for the first part of his life with minimal human contact and handling so he can be shy and avoid people at first. Louis will hide when you first walk into the room but he will quickly com out and explore and he does not hiss or swat at all. Louis loves to lounge in the sun with his best friend Liam and can be found hanging out all hours of the day. He and Liam and like to play and groom together when they are not window watching. He is a curious boy who would love a quiet home with no kids or dogs but he could enjoy a home with another cat who he could bond with. Louis ideal home has someone with patience and dedication who is willing to work long term with him and who can show him how good life can be with humans. Louis would be best suited as an indoor cat in his next home but would love some safe outdoor access like a catio. This boy will need a family to has the time and patience to work with him to get him to trust humans. It may take a while for Louis to get used to living with humans and being socialized but we know it will be worth it! If you believe you can provide this amazing boy his furever home, please fill out an application through the SPCA website!
