Meet Sox

Add to favourites

Meet Sox! He isn’t your average cat and he requires an extra patient guardian!

This adorable sweetheart is looking for a new home! Sox is a very shy boy who our staff and volunteers have committed hours upon hours of time to get him to warm up. While in shelter, he spent much of his time hiding under his favourite blanket, coming out for only the best churro treats! When he does come out he enjoys playing with his cat nip sprayed scratching post and chasing feathers around the room. He is nervous of touch at times but can be quite the sweet boy once you’ve built a relationship with him.

He needs an owner who will give him lots of time and patience as he gets used to you. When in foster he enjoyed pets and watching the family from afar. Sox did struggle with destructive scratching in his foster home and thus was brought back to the shelter after he damaged the sofa. Sox can be redirected on to a scratching post as long as a suitable post is present.

Sox is currently on two different anti-anxiety medications that help him feel safer in his environment. He does not need to be on them for life but would benefit from remaining on them until he is done transitioning into his new home. He eats them out of wet food without much fuss!

Sox will require a quiet home with calm adults that can commit the time and energy it will take to socialize him. They will need to understand Sox may hide when visitors come over and may require a longer transition period before he is comfortable in the home.
