Greetings, my name is Frankie and I am a local kitty. I came from a home that had too many of us. When I arrived I was very scared and would spend my days curled up in a ball in a corner. Now that I am getting used to the routine I am beginning to settle in. I like to play with laser lights and string toys and best of all my confidence is growing. I no longer am hiding or trying to make myself look small. I now enjoy laying on a chair while watching both people and other cats. I also am going over to a couple of familiar people and giving them head nudges. Sometimes I even will allow them to pet me.”
12/13/2017: Frankie came from a hoarding situation but seemed to be very well socialized with his owner. Life here at the shelter was a difficult adjustment for him at first but he’s making great improvements every day. Typically, Frankie’s very shy around new people but will become more outgoing as he relaxes and trust you. He will let you pet him gently as long as you talk softly and go slow with him. He enjoys playing with cat wand toys. Frankie is going to need a quiet home and an adopter who will give him the space and time for him to adapt to a new living situation.
