Hi. My name is Archer and I'm 3 years old and I have trust issues. The adoption room is way too busy for me with all the cats and all the people; it's really just overwhelming. But In the afternoon, when most of the other cats are napping, and all the visitors have gone, I like to hang out with one of our more experienced volunteers. She knows to move slowly and quietly.. Once I know I'm safe, I love gentle hugs and pets and I will purr and purr in happiness. A full body massage is heaven. Given my timid nature, my new home should be on the quieter side, with adults and perhaps teens. I'm not sure how I'd be with dogs, but I can live with other cats if they are very polite, like me. My new family will have to take a very, very slow approach. If you think you have the love and patience for a boy like me, come to the purple adoption room. Make sure you have tons of time to meet me at a slow pace. (Archer flinches whenever you reach for him - he might have been hurt at some point - so don't reach over his head, gently touch his cheeks first until you develop some trust).
