What can I notify you about me?

The shelter staff members says I am sweet, gentle, relaxed, affectionate and appreciate treats! My persona is more on the silent aspect, so I would have to have a wonderful, quiet house. I would do greatest as the only pet in a domestic as I am in have to have of a minor more TLC.

I am somewhat ‘delayed in my reactions’ and the team normally glimpse at me and say “Hello Francis, are you in there!?” It will get extremely fast paced all over right here at the shelter, but opposite to what some persons may perhaps assume we cats don’t expend all of our time in cages. We are permitted some time out for perform time and to operate close to and extend. We get to climb on the cat trees and just get pleasure from ourselves, but in some cases it receives to be a tiny as well considerably ‘stimulation’ for me and I want to just chill in my cage and enjoy the other cats get in issues!

If an individual will give me time, really like and once again, that extra TLC I will do just high-quality. I get a kick out of individuals conversing ‘baby talk’ to me — though I am not an incredibly vocal cat, I do at times reply.

Plenty of appreciate, Francis
