Meet Sergeant Pepper A-2949

Sergeant Pepper, or Sarge, is a very shy kitty who is 8-9 months old. He is looking for a home that wants him based on his personality and needs, not based on the fact that he's beautiful. He was rescued as part of a colony at the Ingham County Fairgrounds. After healing well from upper respiratory and eye infections, and some very bad hair mats behind his ears, he is getting more sociable every day and looks forward to finding his forever home. He will do well with someone who has the patience to keep working with him to bring him out of his shell. At heart he is a very sweet boy, and if he can continue to build trust with humans he will prove to be a wonderful pet. Most of the time he likes to hide in places where he can observe action but not be in the middle of it, and he is getting braver and braver with things like a laser pointer toy and being petted while he eats his dinner. He will also let you scoop him up and brush him on your lap, and is cooperative for nail trims and other care.

Kitties like this tend to bond very closely with the people they trust. He would love the comfort of a safe home where his people understand how scary that change might be for him and that he will need a little time before he feels comfortable and confident enough to be his best self! If you have the patience to allow him to get comfortable then he will reward you with a lifetime of companionship.

**Suggestion: We typically recommend that when a shy kitty first goes home with you, they should be kept in a space where they can feel safe while getting used to the smells and sounds of their new home. A bedroom is the perfect example. Please spend lots of time with them so they can get to know you! This is the perfect time to give them treats, brush them, and play with toys such as wands and laser pointers. Once they have made themselves at home, feel free to open the door and let them explore the rest of their new home with you! This will set them up for success! Ask our adoption team for other ideas if you are unable to accommodate this type of space. Ask our adoption team for more information about adopting our gentle and shy kitties.

By adopting this kitty, it helps the SBZ Organization work on decreasing the over-abundance of kittens that end up homeless.

Note: Because rescue cats do not come from breeders with specific backgrounds, the description is our best estimate of breed & is not guaranteed

SbZ requests that adopted kitties be taken to your private vet to be established right away as moving around can be stressful-even if it’s good stress- and cause reactions in their immune systems.

If you have dogs and other kitties, please make sure to do a slow introduction so they can learn about each other.
