Poor Tip found himself without a family for the first time in his 8 years. After his owner moved into a nursing home, Tip needs someone new to love. Tip is a very timid boy and needs a family that will give him ample time to adjust to his new surroundings. Tip finds comfort in small hiding places, so a quiet home that will help him raise is confidence is crucial. Once Tip gets to know you, he will bond with his people-so he is definitely worth the wait! Tip is scared in the shelter environment and deserves a peaceful home where he can get accustomed to his new life. Tip is extra large and currently over 20 pounds. He requires a strict diet to help him slim down. Tip is also all four paw declawed so requires a strict indoor only home. Even though Tip takes longer than the average cat to adjust, he is worth the wait and deserves a family. It is not required he goes home with Jinxy (who he has lived with all his life), but would find security if he could. Please email, DFriendsOfTheShelter@yahoo.com with any questions.
