Tang, born in 2022, is as orange as his namesake, and we’re still getting to know him as he settles in at the shelter. Right now he is feeling very shy, and tends to hang out high up so he can keep an eye on things. If you catch him at ground level, move slowly and give him time to get used to you as you approach. He is very playful once he gets to know you, and might warm up more quickly if you have a toy to wave around him. Tang is young enough that his personality is still developing, and in a calm, patient household he should find his confidence. Because he gets along with other cats, he may do well in a home with another feline companion to show him the ropes (if you need one, we can make some recommendations). We don’t know how he feels about dogs, but because of his shyness we recommend a slow introduction and an older and/or slower dog. Tang also hasn’t met very many young children, but he would likely prefer calmer kids who are willing to be patient with him.

Tang is…
-Shy, and would like a patient home where he can build confidence
-A friend to other cats
-Feelings about dogs unknown
-Feelings about young, fast-moving children unknown
