“If we treated everyone we meet with the same affection we bestow upon our favorite cat, they, too, would purr.”

Is there something missing in your life?
Has it been too long since you’ve experienced the soft touch of a warm paw in the morning or the kiss of a cold nose on the side of your face? Do you have happy memories of your favorite feline giving you those quick licks on the back of your hand that felt like sandpaper, but made you love him even more?
Are you willing to give an older, shy little boy the patience and time he will need to earn his trust in you?
If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, then Logan, a 10-year-old domestic shorthair ebony cat with translucent green eyes has been waiting for you! An owner surrender, along with his housemate, Tucker, Logan is such a sweet little man that loves to be cuddled and petted.
Once he knows you’re willing to give him all the love and caring he’s been missing since he was given up by his owners, he will meld into your family and it will seem as though he was there from the very beginning.
