Here’s Hayes – a special boy needing a very particular kind of home and love.
Hayes is currently in foster care because he requires a calm environment to help with his stress. This big ginger and white fellow is 6 years old and very shy and anxious so he needs a comfortable home where he can take all the time he needs to adjust to new surroundings and people and to come out of his shell. His adopter(s) should have a quiet environment (inside and outside the home) and be willing to be patient with him for as long as it takes. He may be good with other cats but dogs and young children would likely cause stress. Loud noises even outside will cause him to hide. He has no dietary restrictions or health issues we know of and has his first vaccinations so will just need to come back for a booster.
He’s been making some progress with his foster mom, coming to meet her and enjoying some cuddles and hugs so we believe he could be an affectionate companion. But we’d like to find his perfect forever home soon so he doesn’t get too bonded with his foster or have to transition back to the shelter. We’re not sure why Hayes is feeling the way he is right now but we hope the right person can help him past his fears. If you think you might be that person, or would like more information on Hayes, call 306-773-1806 to speak to shelter staff.
