Sedona AZ (October 23, 2015) –
Intake date of November 2014
My name is Tucker and this is my story. I came into the shelter as a transfer from another rescue in November of 2014. I remember it clearly. I was scared, not knowing where I was being taken to and not knowing if I would be safe. I remember that I was anxious and afraid. As it turned out, I was soon relieved of my stressful experience because the Animal Care Staff and Volunteers welcomed me with such love and understanding that I was no longer scared. The only difficult thing for me presently living at the Humane Society of Sedona is that I have lived in a small cat condo for close to 1 year. I appreciate my living quarters, and all the community does to support the funds to take care of me however . . . a real home, where I could stretch, walk and bask in the sunlight would just bring so much more joy to my life.
I am told that I am a handsome, neutered male, of the Domesticated Medium Hair Cat variety. I am 1 years old and I am told that I am a nice young man. I like to interact with my human companions and show them my affection.
I am a FeLV positive cat meaning I need to be the only cat in your home or I can live in a home where another FELV cat presently lives. I am looking for someone to love! Would that be you?
