“The key to a successful new relationship between a cat and human is patience.”

The white stripe down the middle of his forehead to his nose is almost like an exclamation point with the point ending under his nose.
In the world of black and white cats, it definitely makes him stand out and forces those who might otherwise overlook him to take notice.
Perhaps he was given this mark so those who would see him might conclude that it’s OK to stand out among your peers, because that’s when someone might notice you and give you that forever home you’ve always wanted.
Typical of most cats, there’s an air of mystery about him. His name is Boots, but it wasn’t always. He had another name in a different lifetime. And although he’s only 3-years-old, this handsome domestic shorthair began his journey a long way from Kane County.
Found as a stray, Boots shows no wear or tear from his adventures. Such a sweet and laid-back little boy that just wants a lot of petting and cuddling, he doesn’t mind the company of other cats, but he continues his mystery of life by staying to himself.
Front-pawed and declawed, Boots will make an excellent new addition to any family that has the patience to allow him to stand out in his new environment.
