Meet Nino. His unique look will get your attention, but his personality will win your heart.

Nino is a sweet, but shy Snowshoe Siamese. We don’t know much about his life before coming to the shelter, but we love what we’re learning about him now.

Nino went straight into a foster home instead of going to ROAR’s cat room because he was so timid. He did well there, especially enjoying being on high surfaces to survey the area. Though he isn’t currently big on being picked up, he loved being pet on his head. Hopefully as he warms up over time, he will be more comfortable being handled.

While some shy cats tend to act out in fear, Nino is not one of them. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. This 6 year-old boy will need a family with patience and understanding of his needs. A quiet home without small children is important for him to be comfortable. Make an appointment to meet him, and see all he has to offer.

Nino is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.
