KYLE - ID#A040693

Hi, my name is KYLE.  I am a neutered male, white and black tabby Domestic Mediumhair.  The shelter staff think I am about 8months old.  What a great kitty! He’s shy at first, but once he gets used to his people and surroundings, he’s an attentive and affectionate cat. When Kyle came to our shelter, he was not well and had to be isolated. Maybe because he was being medicated daily for a few weeks and not getting socialized, he became fearful. When approached, he would hiss and swat at hands. He went into a foster home for a month to help him acclimate to being handled. Gentleness and patience helped to gain his trust, and then he became a new kitty. He still jumps at noises and retreats when something is new and scares him. Rambunctious children might not be to his liking. But when sitting with his foster mom, he becomes affectionate and oh-so-very cute. He gets along with other cats and is very playful. He loves treats, and his new owner will need to watch his weight. He gained quite a bit of weight in foster care. Measured meals would be better for him to maintain a healthy weight. He’s an absolute love!
