Gravy is available through our working cat program.

Gravy is a shy, but super sweet, 2-year old who has come out of his shell in such a short time here! He was an indoor/outdoor cat in his previous home and might do best with the same lifestyle in his new home. Gravy loves his head rubs, but also enjoys curling up in little hidey holes. He does not like others of his own kind.

Homeward Bound created the Paws on the Job program to address the personalities of cats that come our way who are in need of shelter but don’t fit in a traditional home environment. Perhaps they were strays who have lived independently for too long to re-acclimate to living in a home, or they didn’t receive enough socialization as kittens to feel fully comfortable with people. These could also be cats who get overlooked at the shelter time and time again because they don’t present well to potential adopters- the stress of being caged causes them to have a “short fuse,” or to not want to engage with people as much as other cats, or maybe they don’t want to be picked up.

For more information on working cats, please read about it on our website under Adoption > Adopt a Working Cat.
