Nugget - Ready for adoption

NUGGET is a handsome short-haired orange tabby NEUTERED adult with dazzling amber eyes. Nugget is a big boy, weighing almost 14 pounds. No attitude here, though––he is a polite and friendly gentleman with a twinkle in his eye. Don’t let that clipped ear fool you––he is not feral. Nugget has a quiet, mellow personality and he loves being around people. His former owner said he likes people, but did not like other cats. We have not seen Nugget show any aggressive behavior toward other cats, but he does get nervous and a bit frightened being around them. Right now, he prefers living in his three-story cage to living in a communal room with other kitties. For that reason, Nugget would do well as an only cat in a household where he will feel safe.

Nugget has great potential as a lap cat for person or family in a calm, quiet household. Since Nugget is already neutered, he can go home with you with minimal delay.

Please use NUGGET’s intake number (AO45378) when making inquiries at the shelter.
