Shifty got his name during his intake exam when he would avoid the camera at all costs, acting all shifty and what not. Since being in our care, he is still his shifty self and likes to make a game out of getting pets and head scratches.
He spent the beginning of his life primarily outdoors, so he would appreciate access to a catio in his new home!
While he does come across as shy in the beginning, he has lots of love to give when a trust bond is made, and has lots of potential to be a cuddly little guy.
If you think you would be a great match for Shifty, please fill out one of our online applications!
