DSH, black and gray tabby
HISTORY: Angus was surrendered after his owner was no longer able to care for him.
When he first arrived, Angus had to spend most of his time in a cat condo due to ringworm. When he was finally let out, the thought of going back in the condo left him grumpy and a bit reactive towards people. After just a few days of freedom, though, it’s as if he’s a completely different cat. Angus typically won’t seek people out but enjoys being pet by people he trusts. Since he’s a bit of an older fellow, Angus prefers to spend most of his time relaxing on blankets. We’ve also started letting him into the laundry room so he can have access to the enclosed porch. This is where Angus is at his happiest. He loves to stretch out in the sun and watch the world go by. When he’s outside he will even happily greet and approach visitors! Angus is also inquisitive and likes to explore. We sometimes find him in unexpected places. Don’t let his grumpy façade fool you. Angus is a layered, loving cat who would make an excellent addition to your home.
March 2022 Update: Angus made the move into one of our cat rooms and, after an adjustment period, it’s safe to say that he’s thriving. We figured out that a lot of his grumpiness was caused by anxiety, and daily medication is doing wonders to mellow him out. He loves nothing more than to approach any new visitor to his room and wait patiently for his turn to get petted. If you sit down, there’s a good likelihood that he’ll hop right up into your lap! He still loves his sunbeams and can often be found out on the enclosed porch watching the world go by. We think Angus would probably be best as an only cat, however he could most likely learn to coexist with an existing cat.

Fall 2023 Update: We love our good friend Angus. This sweet, dear fellow is showing more signs of his senior status. Sleeping more than he used to, he is luckily typically surrounded by a nice grouping of other kitties who keep him company. Angus used to hop up in humans laps but he’s struggling to make that jump now so he’s training the humans to come more down to his level so he can benefit from some well earned and needed scratches. When he’s not napping, Angus slowly goes about his business and always in a peaceful, respectful manner towards his roommates. Our “Old Scotsman” is on meds for hyperthyroidism, his values are good and he’s added on some needed pounds. With no other emerging health concerns, he’s surely on target to ease into the fall and enjoy all that it has to offer.
