Forest is an extremely handsome black and white tuxedo with huge, watchful eyes and very soft fur.
Forest is a sweetly shy and affectionate boy. He will sleep with you and let you pick him up to cuddle for a bit, or stoop down to give him some stroking. He loves pets after treats and while he's eating. He loves getting brushed and reluctantly allows you to clip his nails, his least favorite thing, but he loves the treats afterward.
Forest loves laser light and playing with all sorts of toys, either by himself or with his foster mates, He has grown to be quite affectionate and is great with other cats. He's shy with new people or situations, but comes around nicely once he determines that you're his friend, and that you will respect his desire to accept him on his terms.
Forest would like to be adopted with a gentle playmate in a relatively quiet household. Forest tested negative for FIV/FELK, is neutered, current on vaccinations, litter box trained and ready to go to his forever home.
Forest was rescued at an elementary school in Durham when he was approximately 10 months old. He was by himself and we didn't want to leave him outside alone, so he was brought inside and socialized. Forest was initially terrified of humans; but with the help from another gentle, loving kitty, his sweet personality emerged.
