This handsome, long haired boy is a heartbreaker. He knows he’s cute and knows exactly how to give you those big kitty eyes to beg for some extra treats or a squeeze up. We don’t know about Willie’s past life, but we do know that he was rescued with a degloving injury to his jaw, meaning the skin on his chin was detached and had to be surgically fixed. As such, Willie spent his first few weeks at the shelter healing and decompressing. Willie is also a little shy and uncertain in new situations, so when the opportunity arose for Willie to go to a foster home, we thought he would be shy like he was in the shelter.

And boy were we WRONG! After lulling his foster family into thinking he was a timid cat, Willie gleefully bounced around and did his best Lightning McQueen impression. “Ka-Chow!” He’s up! He’s down! He’s in a box! He’s on a box! He does wicked burnouts on the hardwood floor. He is SPEED. He loves playing with toys, from stuffed mice to crinkle balls, jingle balls to kicker toys; essentially anything that isn’t tied down. When Willie isn’t playing with toys, he can sometimes be found on the floor, belly-up in front of his foster brother waiting for the perfect time to use his pro-wrestling moves (or to just bat at his tail). Willie isn’t all go-go-go. He is equal parts play, sleep, and food. You can find him California Dreaming in the window, stretched out on the bed, or squashed up next to his big foster brother. He likes to observe what’s going on and follow you around the house. He will even lean in for head scritches! But Willie is also not bashful about saying when he’s had enough, he may let you know with a gentle smack or will push your hand away. We would consider Willie a medium energy cat. While he doesn’t have kitten energy, he does have his moments of high-energy playing. A home with a friendly, playful cat sibling (who is sometimes ready to rumble) would be perfect for Willie.
