Handsome Shadow loves to play.  He looks like a snowboarder when he leaps for a toy.  All four paws off the ground, and he does almost hang in the air.  And he is a dashing boy in his tuxedo.  He is tolerant of other cats and likes to hang out in a cat tree in the middle of the room where the action is.  We love him.

But Shadow doesn’t know what love is.  He certainly doesn’t trust us.  When we try to pet him he shies away.  If we insist, he batts at us with his paws or gets up and walks away.  Shadow isn’t mean or aggressive.  He just thinks that hands are for hurting.  We don’t know what happened to Shadow that he is afraid of hands and petting.  Unfortunately, we can guess.
We are continuing to work with Shadow.  But we are also looking for a home for him.  It won’t be easy.  Shadow needs an adopter with a big heart and a lot of patience; a cat savvy person who is willing to play with Shadow and love him.  Even if Shadow doesn’t yet know what love us.
