Shelby is a big gorgeous fluffy boy with clear green eyes and the longest whiskers you’ve ever seen. Not surprisingly there’s a diamond over his nose because he’s a real gem of a kitty. He came into care with his brother, Sam as a very quiet, shy guy but his curiosity soon got the better of him and he became his foster family’s shadow or maybe more a private eye because nothing goes on without Shelby keeping watch.
He is a gentle boy who never gets cross with his brother when they’re playing and when playtime is over, he loves to climb to top of the cat tower and snooze away the afternoon.
Shelby really loves food and is not a fussy eater, wet food at night and biscuits during the day. He hasn’t met any dogs yet and gets along well with other cats. He hasn’t met any small children and is used to a household of adults and teenagers.
Loud noises and strangers will make him run away and hide but it’s not long before he comes out to investigate.
Shelby is a sweet boy who is still gaining confidence and will need someone who is willing to put in some effort into winning him over, but when you do, you’ll be rewarded with an adorable purr that sounds a lot like a dove call. He really loves having a family to hang out with and is always nearby keeping you company. So far, he’s not been keen to be picked up but when all paws are on the ground, he will show you when he wants pats and scratches by rubbing himself against your legs until you comply.
