WELLS – A0686486
*SAFE* 05/05/15- A staff member writes: This big guy is our resident gentleman. While it might take a little time for him to settle in, once he’s comfortable he is a nuzzling purr machine. Wells came to us as an owner surrender, but not through any fault of his — his family was moving and couldn’t take Wells with them. According to his previous owner, he has been around children and is gentle with them, and that doesn’t surprise me at all. Come to Brooklyn and meet Wells today!
A volunteer writes: All’s well that ends in Wells’ adoption! This big, handsome guy with pretty, light green eyes looks up at you expectantly, and he waits for you to make the first move. But when he sees that you just want to softly rub his neck and chin, his eyelids close and he just melts into the moment. Wells is a shy cat who just needs a bit of coaxing to come forward and trust that your intentions are all to the good.
