Hello. My name is Spooky and I am an 11-year-old boy with pretty golden eyes and a soft black coat. I was relinquished to Maxfund in May 2021 when my owner had a change of living situation.

Losing my home has been hard on me and I've been very shy and withdrawn since my arrival here. Even now, I spend much of my time in the small cubby in my cage, and as a result most visitors to my room don't even notice me at all and I often feel very alone. I have started to respond to the familiar voices of the people who check-in on me regularly and I turn toward them to receive soft, soothing head and neck rubs. I'm beginning to understand that I am safe and loved, but I'm still not yet willing to venture out to play. I'm on a special diet and I also take a little bit of medication for my thyroid, but it's very easy - all you have to do is rub it into my ear. Because of this, I'm eligible for both adoption and foster.

I know that I am a good, sweet boy. With time and encouragement, I truly believe that I can find my true self again in a home that understands that new experiences are a little scary for me. With a gradual introduction, I think I may do fine with another mellow, non-intrusive cat. I have a history of getting along with children, but they need to be gentle and follow my lead. Won't you please help me overcome my sadness and give me my second chance at a happy life?
