This very handsome boy is Bruce and he is looking for a patient and quiet new furever home of his very own!
Bruce was a very scared and apprehensive boy when he first arrived with us here at the shelter and is slowly coming out of his shell. He still has some ways to go yet so he is looking for a new home with an owner who will be patient with him and provide a safe and quiet environment where he can really settle in and gain his confidence so he can let his very friendly and loving personality really shine through.
Bruce can still be quite apprehensive when first meeting new people and may tend to shy away but the key to his heart is pats! He really loves being patted and especially loves a good scratch down his back and at the base of his tail, and the more you pat and talk to him, the more he will relax and start to quietly purr in appreciation. After patting him for a few minutes, he will cautiously come forward looking for more pats if you stop. He is fine to pick up and hold for a cuddle, making no effort to move or get down from your arms.
When let out into a larger and more open area, although cautious and slightly apprehensive, Bruce enjoys having a wander about and exploring his surroundings and visiting with the other cats that are housed around him.
Bruce is a gorgeous and gentle boy who would be best suited to a quiet home and once he has settled and gained his confidence, he will be a wonderfully loving and affectionate addition to the family!
