Originally adopted from a shelter in Bucksport as a kitten, beautiful black Inky, with the big green eyes likes to play a little rough sometimes. This 7-year-old boy has had a challenging time being couped up in the shelter this time around. According to our friend Cole at the SPCA of Hancock County, Inky just wants to play and do his own thing.

"Inky is a spicy boy who needs his space. He loves roughhousing with other cats just to take a long nap in a sunspot after getting all his energy out. Inky would do best in a home with other cats, where he can be left alone to do his thing while having the option of loving his new human. He is not able to be adopted into a home with dogs or small children."

Aside from needing a home without pups or kids, Cole says Inky will need someone to keep an eye on his diet and make sure he gets plenty of roughage.

"Inky has had issues with constipation in the past and needs to be kept on a special high fiber diet."

Inky wants to get out of the shelter pronto, and because of this, Cole says he's not been showing the best version of himself at times.

"He is very stressed in the shelter, so even though we are doing all we can to keep him calm, he doesn’t perform well for meeting new people. Inky says he would like to keep stress at a minimum! If you think this may be the right fit for you, come on by to meet Inky! Just remember, meeting new people can be very scary!"
