4 years 1 month old male
Brown Tabby DSH
He was found as a 5 month old kitten in someone's backyard in October 2014. The good Samaritan brought him to Helping Paws in order to have a chance at finding a home. He was very shy so that is probably why he didn't get adopted as a kitten. He is still a little shy with new people but there are staff and volunteers he trusts and seems to love. With those he trusts he will come running when they call him. He lets them pet him and enjoys getting attention and affection.
He is a big handsome boy at 17 pounds with green eyes, dark black stripes on his sides, narrow striped rings around his tail and legs and 'necklaces on his chest. As with all tabbies he has the mark resembling an 'M' on his forehead. He is a mackerel tabby pattern because of his vertical, gently curving stripes, which is the most common pattern. He will need a guardian to go slow and be patient. You will need to gain his trust by being kind and he will likely reward you with his love.
