Hard to believe that this handsome young fella is still with us! Gourami was part of a litter of seven kittens surrendered to the shelter in January 2015. He was only 10 weeks old at that time and was one of the five solid white kittens in the litter. One by one, Gourami’s siblings got adopted and, for no reason other than the luck of the draw, he was left behind and remains with us still. Gourami was very outgoing and social but, as often happens with cats that are in a shelter for too long, he started becoming a little more aloof with new visitors to the McKinney Room. Oh, he’s still a sweet and loving cat but he tends to show more of that affection with the other cats in the room that with people (shich isn’t a good tactic if you want to get noticed and adopted). Still, if you stay in the room long enough, Gourami’s curiosity will get the best of him and he’ll saunter over to meet you. Gourami will move into your hand when you pet him and he will give you a few appreciative head buts but he’s not always crazy about being picked up and carried around. He’s grown from a scrawny little kitten into a good-sized cat so if you like big cats, you won’t be disappointed with Gourami. And, if you happen to be in the market for two cats, Gourami is best buddies with Cargo and they would LOVE to spend the rest of their lives in the same forever home. To meet Gourami and our other wonderful cats and kittens waiting to be someone’s BFF (Best Feline Friend), just stop by the shelter!
