Shaw is a cat who looks like he’s been around the block - and we’re sure he has!

With his one crumpled ear, raggedy black and white fur, and his declawed front paws, this cat sure could tell some stories. We may never hear those stories, but what’s most important is what comes next for Shaw.  A forever home!

He may look scruffy right now, but Shaw knows that his shaved fur will grow back in sleek and shiny. His ears are already feeling better now that the vet got rid of his ear mites, and his runny eye is recovering quickly. Before long, he won’t need those eye and ear drops anymore. We can’t fix his declawed paws, but we can help him find a home where he’ll have a soft bed to rest them on!

Shaw’s positive outlook is a huge part of his charm. Petting and brushing are among his favorite activities. He’ll even let us brush his tummy - what trust! Shaw is 7 years old, and he wants to know: are you part of his future?
