Though my days are filled with sorrow, I see there a bright tomorrow -- Bob Marley Will is a handsome male black domestic long hair, born on 08-25-2002. Will was adopted from us several years ago, where he lived with his family for 6 years until he was recently returned after the family has had some tragic losses. The husband was a 'cat person' and the wife was a 'dog person'. Not surprisingly, Will became very close with the husband and son but never bonded with the wife. Then a lot of change hit the family all at once ... first the son went off to college, then the husband unexpectedly died, then Will's elder feline companion passed away. All this happened within a few short weeks. The wife returned Will to us a few months later, claiming her allergies were the reason for his return. It did seem obvious that there was never a bond between the two of them, though. Will is a very in-your-face friendly snuggly lap kitty, and he LOVES attention. He loves people, but he does seem to have a preference for men. We feel he would do best in a family where there was at least one male (of any age from toddler to grandpa) who enjoyed Will's company and was willing to spend time with him. Will had a feline companion before that he enjoyed the company of, so he is used to being in a family with another feline. Here, Will seems to like some cats and dislike others. Will is a strong personality, we consider him to be bossy but not aggressive. We feel his change to a more dominant behavior is also from the change of going from a family to a shelter. Because Will is lonely and wants attention so badly, and because there are so many cats here and not enough 'petting time' with the volunteers, Will is very competitive for attention. We feel a home where he would not have to compete for attention would be preferred, this could be either as an only cat or in a family with another feline companion where there was sufficient attention given to both. Will had dogs in his family and is familiar with them. Will would probably be a good fit for a family who has or plans on having one or more dogs. Will has endured a lot of loss - first his man, then his feline companion. Show this gentle soul that there is a reason to keep hoping for something better -- please call us today to meet Will!
