Meet Socks

This pet needs emergency placement. Please click here to go to our emergency placement page for more information.

Socks are on the emergency placement list due to behavior. He is not thriving in the care center and continues to display distance-increasing behavior when approached for interactions. He has not warmed up despite staff using treats to build a positive association. Due to his stress levels, it is in his best interest to move out of the kennel environment and into a stable home as quickly as possible. He would do best in a home with adopters who are willing to give him plenty of time and space to adjust, and who has experience with helping a fearful cat adjust to strangers.

What my friends at ACC say about me:
I'm an independent kitty who likes to do my own thing.
I am finding the shelter a little overwhelming.
I am looking for a home with a patient person.
I can be slow to adjust to new environments. I prefer to take things at my own pace.
I will flourish in a calm environment and a low-traffic home.
I would appreciate slow introductions to new people and places to help me feel safe.
I'm sensitive and shy. I'll need extra help from you.
I would do best in a home with only adult humans.
I'll need daily interaction with you as I get used to my new life.
I have medical needs that staff will address with you when you meet me.

A volunteer writes:Socks is a distinguished older gentleman. We don't know much about his past other than the fact that he lived with other cats. He is looking for a forever home with understanding, cat loving, experienced parents. Due to his behavior in the care center, we believe he should not go to a home where children are present.
