Our shy Sylvester is looking for a family to help him bring him out of his shell and love him fur-ever! Sylvester is reserved at first, but with time and lots of love (and a few treats) he will become your best friend. He has lived on a property with other cats before and may do well with a confident feline friend to hang out with. Sylvester likes to hang out in small places or on top of cat posts placed by windows. He loves temptations and catnip, but most of all he loves to lounge around in comfy beds! He can be scared by loud noises and fast movements, so a home with no small children would be ideal. Sylvester may need some time to decompress in his new environment, so he hopes his family will be patient with him during his transition. He is patiently waiting to find his PURRfect home!
Please note that Sylvester is awaiting a dental surgery so he needs a local adoptive home where he can be in foster to adopt for now until has had his surgery.
