NAME: Mr. Marbles
ADOPTION FEE: $75
This very handsome cat with the very dignified name came to us after being dumped at the Harrisburg airport. If you know the area, you know how much danger Mr. Marbles was in: busy roads, little shelter, and no nearby homes to offer help. An Uber driver spotted him, and he and his neighbor set out to trap Mr. Marbles and get him to safety. Although we did not have space for new cats, we could not leave this boy out in the cold. Some rearranging opened up the laundry room and now Mr. Marbles has a nice warm spot to wait for his forever family.
In our care, Mr. Marbles was neutered, combo tested (neg/neg for Feline Leukemia and FIV), vaccinated and microchipped. He had fleas so we gave him Revolution right away. Although he was nervous and possibly undersocialized, he allowed all handling by his foster mom and our vet. We are working hard to help Mr. Marbles understand that he is truly safe, and we have been rewarded with purrs and leg rubs. He is always happy for a head or chin scratch, or a back scratch if you know the right spots. One of our resident cats, a 16 year old calico, snuck into the laundry room where Mr. Marbles lives. This good boy did not react at all, so we suspect he would be good with calm and respectful cats. We are also slowly introducing him to the dogs and we've had success so far. Mr. Marbles will need a space of his own to decompress, and then we suspect that he will blossom into a pretty awesome companion! Please give this young boy a second chance.
