When you’ve lived with your people since you were 5 weeks old (and now you’re 10), you can understand why I’m shy in this strange new place! I’m a pretty reserved guy to begin with (but was a “total lap cat” with my senior mom and dad), so things are going to be doubly hard for me for a while. I long for a quiet home (dad was said to have an impressively loud voice which sometimes disconcerted me!), with a patient, understanding person who’ll give me the time I need to adjust to a new life. I know there are people like that out there, so I’m hopeful you’ll be the one to give this declawed gentleman (with free vet care) a chance to shine!
