This handsome boy is looking for his forever home!
Layne is a social and talkative cat that requires a very special home. For the first 5 years of Layne’s life he didn’t get a lot of human interaction so he tends to get nervous and forgets manners around people. Layne loves attention, but gets overstimulated quickly and expresses this by grabbing onto people and scratching. Layne has worked very hard with our staff to learn proper manners and has found a new routine and medication that has really helped to keep him calm and happy.
Layne’s ideal family would be calm with no small children and individuals who have experience working with cats with behavioral concerns are preferred. Layne will also need a family that can be patient with him as he gains their trust as he is most nervous around strangers.
Although Layne is still working on his behavior around people, he absolutely adores other animals! He will perk up and chirp at every animal he sees and is very respectful and friendly to all the cats he’s been introduced to. It would be great for Layne to go to a family that has another cat, as having a cat around helps lower his anxiety and teach him proper manners. Layne also loves being outside on his catio and loves laying in the sun. He is also learning to walk on a leash and would love a catio or supervised outdoor time in his new home.
Meet and greets with Layne will be appointment only with approved adopters. We’d also recommend having a few meets with Layne to get him comfortable with you before bringing him home.
Do you think you could be Layne’s person? Please submit an online application adopt.spca.bc.ca and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit!
