Shuffles - see his video!
Meet Shuffles, retired NFL lineman and current couch surfing enthusiast! This formerly chubby hunk o' cat is the definition of "laid back"- he is completely mellow and relaxed, and loves to be picked up and held. Shuffles will make someone a terrific companion. Before he came to 4Paws he was loved and well cared for, but his owner began a traveling job and Shuffles didn’t get the attention he craves. He can be persuaded to play with pounce toys, he loves catnip, but is most content when he’s simply sharing time, and the couch or bed, with his people.
Shuffles doesn’t forget mealtime, either- a bit of high-end canned will do. And a treat or two, hand fed. He tipped the scales at 16 lbs last June, but now he's a healthier weight and looking like the champ he knows he is, at 13lbs.
Shuffles does well with other pets, although he does have limited patience with hissy, cranky, territorial types. He’s fine with dogs, when properly introduced. He is very close to his companion cat, Jack, who dotes on him! Jack is also up for adoption, so if you want a pair they would make an excellent choice. But mostly Shuffles wants to be your buddy and hopes you like to read or watch TV with him. He'll never judge your viewing choices OR hog the remote!
Shuffles was born on 7/15/2013. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and ready to go to a new home. He has tested negative for feline leukemia.
