*Please read bio in its entirety*

Socks is a 1 year old male cat with a lively personality. He enjoys swatting at string and feathers, and chasing after toy mice and balls. When he is content, he loves to roll around on the floor like a roly-poly; what a total goof ball he is! After playtime, Socks likes to relax and take a nap on couches and beds with his humans. Socks is also a purr-machine, activated by lots of affection from his people, which he seeks out pets and cuddles quite often. From doing work on the computer to watching TV, Socks will be right by your side for it all like your own personal fluffy shadow.

Regarding his background, Socks was found as a stray by a friendly samaritan, but the family who found him could not keep him. He is now in one of our foster homes with a well-versed cat foster and is living amongst other cats. Since (we suspect) Socks spent his youth as an outdoor stray, he is still learning the ropes of living life as an indoor cat in a home setting.

Socks can get startled easily by loud noises and quick movements, and he has a tendency to try and play with people's ankles and hands. He can be redirected with toys and treats, and likes to play with other animals. Providing an abundance of mentally stimulating toys, such as tunnels and scratching posts, also helps Socks to appropriately expel his energy.

Sock's foster family is helping him become well acquainted with all the bustling activities that take place in a home and are socializing him with people. So far, Socks is doing well! He is making positive strides in the right direction.

Socks is looking for an adopter who is experienced with handling cats and can read feline body language. Socks would do best with a family who is patient with him, offer the right tools to help him adjust, and love him for who he is. A furry companion has been found to be of great comfort to Socks as he is a social youngster, therefore, Socks would do best in a home with a house mate-cat or dog-who can match his energy levels and his play style (imagine how kittens play). Due to his tendencies described above, Sock's would do best in an all-adult home.

Socks is truly a great cat with a stellar personality! We believe guidance and repetition will allow Socks to thrive, he just needs someone to give him a chance.
