ZACHY* - ID#A234061

Staff named me Zachy* and I am a neutered male, black Domestic Shorthair.

The shelter staff think I am about 12 years old.

I have been at the shelter since Feb 18, 2017.

This information is less than 1 hour old.
Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Zachy has been trying to find his forever home for some time. He was living outside and being fed by a nice lady. He eventually figured out that she had a cat door and he made himself at home. He was helping himself to her cats food and would come inside to sleep when it would rain. Her cats were very unhappy by this forced living situation so she decided to bring Zachy to us so we could find him a more fit home. She told us that Zachy was not aggressive with her cats, but wouldn't back down if one of them comfronted him. (Therefore, he may cohabitate well with other cats if introduced properly.) She must have been feeding him very well because as you can see he is carrying around a bit of extra weight. He will need a new owner who will help him eat sensibly and get him moving so that he can drop some pounds. He is a timid boy who will need a quiet, calm home, without small children. Once he warms up he is very affectionate and loves being pet. Can you open your home and heart to this big boy?

Shelly's Guardian Angels will help pay for Zachy's adoption fee. (Shelly Crowley's group helps pay the adoption fee for older animals which is funded through sales of used books and donations at Boulder Creek Liquors.)
