A Sweet and Handsome Adult Cat

Seeking His Furever Home

My name is Smokey and I ended up at SMAWL through no fault of my own. I am longing for the love and warmth of an indoor home to live out my years in comfort. I am a nine and a half year old neutered shorthaired adult kitty. Sleek, shiny, grey fur covers my lean, muscular body. I truly am a handsome feline!

Once we warm up to each other, you will enjoy holding, brushing, and petting me. In time, I will allow you to give me a few belly scratches. Just being in your company will make me content.

I will be your one and only kitty because I do not want to share my human/s with other cats or dogs. I am not able to tell you my behavior around children because I have only lived in childfree environments.
I enjoy getting exercise through interactive play like chasing the red dot and trying to catch a toy on a string. When you are not home, please leave me in a comfortable area with a good window view of the outdoors. In nice weather, I so love to relax in an open window sunning myself in the fresh air while I watch and listen to nature.
I have good litter box etiquette and am not accustomed to jumping up on counters. I groom my beautiful coat and, of course, I love to sleep and will be a comfortable napping buddy.

Waiting, Hoping, Wishing...
