Adopt Laverne!
 
Laverne is a 6 month old gentle, quiet, and independent kitty who is still working on learning to trust humans. He and his two siblings were all rescued from a bad situation behind a car wash on Moravia Road in April, at about three months old. Because they had not had much contact with people, they were TERRIFIED, but Laverne didn't have a mean bone in his body (and was right at the age where he could potentially be transformed from a feral kitty to a loving and well-adjusted indoor cat), so he was put into a foster home that included a big dog and a bunch of feline friends. Since then, he has become a really happy and relaxed little guy who seems very grateful for his new life, and he continues to make progress, getting more and more comfortable with humans every day.
 
Despite his past, Laverne (who we thought was a girl until he ended up getting neutered) is a brave boy, who unlike his siblings, didn't hide out in his foster mom's basement after arrival. He roams the whole house, naps everywhere, and comes running when he hears a can of wet cat food pop open. He’s a super easy and low maintenance cat with perfect litter box manners.
 
He’s also food motivated and will accept pets while eating but otherwise he runs away from his foster mom if she tries to give him some love. But he's so affectionate with his foster siblings, she knows that Laverne will eventually figure out that people are awesome and receiving pets and hugs and love is a wonderful thing!
 
He’s super playful though and great with both cats and dogs but needs a patient adopter (preferably with a quiet home) who’s willing to accept that Laverne may not ever be a lap kitty. He would do best in a home with at least one other friendly cat that he can be best buddies with. Even though he's a shy guy and not everyone's idea of the perfect cat, Laverne will bring joy to any home! He makes his foster mom laugh everyday and has charmed his way into the hearts of everyone in the house, including his cranky old feline foster sister!
 
Laverne is neutered, vaccinated, disease tested and microchipped and will come with all medical records.
