This is Collin!
Collin is an approximately 2 year old male. He has been neutered, vaccinated, and tested. Collin was brought to the shelter after he had been found in the Shenandoah National Park. We don’t know much about his previous life, but he seems like he had been a stray.
Collin is a shy fella, but has some real potential. The folks from the park said he was a friendly cat and everyone up there loved him. He has had a tough time relaxing here, but who could blame him when your whole world has been turned upside down, and you’re forced to listen to barking dogs all day. He would likely relax further in a more homely environment, but we can’t say for certain.
What we can say for sure, is that Collin is a funny, little, chunky fella. In his eyes, you can see the internal struggle as he fights with the reserved side of himself. You can tell just how badly he wants to approach you whether it’s for toys, food, or affection. He’ll even roll around and show you his belly or play with your fingers if you let him!
Luckily, he’s quite food and play motivated and would likely be easy to persuade. He’s done very well with us and has learned our routine. He’s very compliant and patiently works with us to let us clean his kennel in the mornings. When his kennel is all cleaned up, we let him wrestle around with some toys. His favorite toy is his soft soccer ball. He loves to knock it around and dreams of making it into the big leagues!
