Very big Orange Tabby.
Big Boy is a large and loveable kitty who loves to cuddle up right next to you! He can be a little shy at first, but once he's had a chance to warm up to you he is very affectionate. He had a tough life outdoors before he was rescued, and now he absolutely delights in being safe and warm indoors. He is a real softie when it comes to being petted, and will usually stop whatever he's doing and roll over onto his back whenever you start petting him. He loves to have his head scratched and his belly rubbed. He is one of those cats who prefer to lie next to you, rather than on your lap, and he will purr happily--usually he'll even end up napping there! <p>He especially likes to sleep on the bed, and normally cuddles up beside you at night until you fall asleep. Big Boy is also a very independent kitty, and he sometimes likes his alone time. This most often happens during the middle of the day, and he'll simply go off to a nice secluded spot for a few hours. In the evening and morning, though, he's very sociable and loves to do anything from cuddling on the couch to playing with his toys.
Big Boy was left behind when his former family moved away from the area. He became part of a feral cat colony for a period of time until he was rescued by an IAR volunteer.
