This gorgeous boy with chubby tom cat cheeks doesn't know about all the goodness there is in the world. Tyson is a big scaredy cat, and we do mean big and scared. He hisses and swats whenever we come near and he doesn't like other cats very much either. Tyson's adopter will need to be comfortable putting a lot of time and effort into making him feel safe and comfortable. Tyson would thrive in a quiet home with a low activity level and lots of nooks and crannies for him to decompress in.
Check back soon to see if Tyson starts to open up to us - we are working hard to show him all the love and affection he deserves but he will only develop at the pace he is comfortable with.
Tyson is FIV+. This does not affect his day-to-day health but means he is immunocompromised and is more likely to get sick and have complications from illness. His future adopter must be prepared for an elevated level of medical care for him later in life.
