It doesn’t take too much coaxing to get Izzy, a 1-year-old black and white domestic shorthair to start a conversation.
In fact, he’s one of the first felines to greet whomever comes in the KCAC cat room. It’s almost as though he can’t wait to tell his story as he settles onto someone’s lap and snuggles in for the duration.
Izzy came to KCAC as a stray, which, when you see his beautiful silky black and white coat seems almost unimaginable. How could this handsome, beautiful boy ever have been left to wander the streets and neighborhoods of Big Rock? He enjoys the company of humans too much to have just walked away from whomever might have originally owned him.
Izzy tolerates other cats and probably wouldn’t mind having a good buddy that he could pal around with when he’s not cuddling or talking with his favorite human.
If you’re looking for a feline partner to share your daily trials and tribulations with, then Izzy is definitely your man!
