Chino is an 8-year-old, 8-pound medium-haired neutered male who was found as a stray in Salinas. A good Samaritan brought him to the Monterey County shelter at the end of May. His guardians never came forward, so the Good Samaritan reclaimed Chino and contacted Golden Oldies.
Chino has soft fur, adorable green eyes and a long tail. His former caretaker describes Chino “loves to be pet and scratched, especially on his head and face. He is also very active. He appreciates treats and isn’t a picky eater when it comes to flavor. But he prefers wet food over dry food. He’s okay with young children that gently pet him.” Since Chino spent some time wandering the streets and starving as a stray, he still tries to get his paws on every piece of food he sees or smells. He sometimes tries to get into the trash, so a covered trash can would be best.
This handsome kitty loves to be around people and explore new areas, and he loves to play with toys – especially catnip toys. Curiosity is his middle name. When he arrived at his foster home he came right out of his crate and began exploring. He let everyone pet him and even jumped up on his new foster parent’s chairs to look out the window!
Like all older cats, Chino will need patience and lots of love – someone who will give him time to acclimate and not rush him. Chino does not like to be picked up quite yet and needs to be worked with on that by offering him treats.
Can you give this kitty a second chance at happiness?
