Clarence bonded well with his human friend and would sleep with her, and became very forward with her, nibbling her fingers and petting himself with her hands when he wanted petting. Unfortunately, he just never got along with the other male cat. They fought constantly, and instead of showing signs that they were learning to accept each other’s presence, the two cats only got worse. And Clarence’s adopter, with a broken heart, felt that he would have a better life elsewhere, so she brought him back to us.
She did a great job advancing the work we started, as he is very social, friendly and affectionate with his volunteer friends. He still hesitates when a stranger comes in the room, retreating to behind the cages and peeking out to see if it’s friend or foe, but as soon as the stranger has left, he’s right back out, seeking companionship from his cat volunteers. And don’t most of us have a cat like that, one that is super affectionate with HIS humans, but disappears when company comes? That’s Clarence.
So now our friend Clarence needs another home. Though we know it should not be a home with another adult cat, it’s likely Clarence will one day accept a younger cat or kitten as a companion — he does not have any issues with any shelter cats he’s met and does not fight with them. There were also dogs in his home, and while his adopter said he did not seem frightened of them, she acknowledged that he also never became comfortable with them. He would probably be fine with older children who would understand his needs better than younger, smaller children.
Clarence is really an ideal cat for an elder or retiree, someone with a quieter home who would just like to have a companion around. He really is a nice cat that loves to be loved and petted and to sit on a lap — he just needs someone to give him another chance.
Clarence is box-trained, neutered, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia.
