Cat for Adoption: Linus


Linus, a 5-year-old male, was abandoned in the mountains behind ARK. He accidentally wandered into a humane trap and thus found his way to the shelter. It’s an unfortunate fact that some people think domesticated house cats can be abandoned and fend for themselves. In actuality, it means near certain death or, at the very least, extreme trauma. Linus, having fallen early into the trap, seems to have escaped such trauma as he absolutely loves people, all people. He also loves to eat and loves to play, which makes him a very fun cat, albeit a very chubby one at 6kg! Linus would be good for someone who already had cats. Admittedly, there is the chance he will try to eat everyone else’s food. As a single cat he would likely devote all his charm and fun-loving ways to his new person.

Interested in Adopting Linus?
