Howdy, I’m Socks! I’m a big, sweet gentleman with a handsome gray tuxedo coat, white milk mustache and big amber eyes. You can tell by my tipped and notched ear, my badge of honor, that I’ve done my time on the street, surviving as best I could.

You can also tell by how loving and friendly I am that I began my life as someone’s loving little kitten. Somewhere along the way, I was lost or abandoned, but now that I’m back inside, I’m ready to give you my heart. It doesn’t take much affection to turn on my purrs and I’m always there for headbonks too. I will probably love being your lap cat this winter, ready to keep you warm all winter long!

I do well with other nice cats, but we don’t yet know what kind of experience I had with dogs. I’m calm and confident and should do well with children.

I am probably a senior, based on the state of my teeth. You can see that I need some dental work done and will have that taken care of soon. That snaggle tooth is a little sensitive but my appetite is just fine still! My adoption includes my virus testing, microchip, vaccinations, neuter, food & litter starter kit and a free vet visit. Through November, my adoption fee is $30 to celebrate Adopt a Senior month!

I’m also being supported with the Love Knows No Age grant, so I come with $1000 worth of free vet care with one of the Happy Cats Partner Vets for my first year at home. If you have room in your heart for me now, I could get my dental and be recovering in the safety and warmth of my new home, with the support of my friends at Happy Cats. Won’t you come by and see how grateful and loving this old gent will be?
