Hi! My Name Is Raphael

We're happy to tell you that Raphael has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Cats Page to see the cats currently available.

You’d never know it now, but Raphael – affectionately known as “Raffy” – took several months to trust people. “Raffy was not used to humans at all prior to coming into his foster home,” says his foster mom. “It has taken several months, but he now finally allows us to pet him…and he LOVES it.” He also adores his best friend, another cat in the foster home named Leonardo. As for his foster mom, her favorite thing about him is his “beautiful, silky silver” coat and his oh-so-adorable nighttime routine. “He loves being pet and loved on before bed. He loves having his back scratched all the way down – and his cute little butt raises in the air.” A friendly guy, Raphael seems unfazed by the family’s bulldog, allows pets from the children in the home (ages 9, 4, and 2) as long as they approach him calmly, and even tried to cuddle the family cat when he snuck into Raphael’s room! Although he’ll probably need a little time and patience to adjust to his forever home, his foster mom can foresee him even becoming a lap cat someday. “He is clearly an affectionate little guy.”
