Shotgun’s name comes from his adventurous days as a brave tomcat in search of a home. He is our first feline Breaking and Entering offender. Homeless during the cold January weather, he was out looking for shelter and found a home that he could squeeze into. However, the home was already occupied by other cats who did not take to his invasion well. The owner called us and said the cat’s two options were to come to our facility or the shotgun. Hence his name.

Shotgun is a very fortunate and grateful feline. He truly behaves like a dog inside a cat’s body and he just wants to please you and receive praise. He would be good to an indoor/outdoor home, as he comes Microchipped and has experience in the great outdoors. He enjoys brushing and snuggling and of course being told how handsome he is.
