Why he is special: Petri is an incredibly handsome man looking for his forever home! He was surrendered because his previous pet parent was being evicted and couldn’t care for him. Petri has won the hearts of everyone here. When he first arrived we noticed that something was wrong with his vision. He spent most of his life living in his previous pet parent’s garage because she thought he was a “scared cat.” She didn’t know that he has very limited vision and that’s why he appeared fearful to her.
It turns out Petri is a sweet man when he feels safe and familiar with his surroundings. Blind cats can live happy, normal lives in a home where their people understand what they need. Just simple things like keeping furniture where it is and keeping change to a minimum are important. Petri would do best in a quiet home with no small children and no other animals. With all that Petri has been through he really needs a special cat-savvy person or some special cat-savvy people who can show him he is safe and loved. It’s just heartbreaking because you can see how sweet he is, but the shelter environment is stressful for him. When you look at him you just want to hug him and tell him everything will be okay. Petri deserves the bets forever family out there!
