Whiskers is a very unusual looking, sweet and quiet 13-year-young neutered male cat. He is a black tabby mackerel, also known as a "black smoke" which is super rare! Whiskers has been through a lot of changes lately. After his owner went into a nursing home, he was placed in a new home. However, he didn't get along with the other animals there, so now this gentle boy is looking for his forever home once and for all! Whiskers is a little bit shy here at the shelter, but after a few minutes of petting, he'll close his eyes and relax. He would love a quiet home where he can relax and be loved. So if you're looking for gentle, quiet companionship, Whiskers would make the perfect cat!
