Juan—A distinguished 4- to 5-year-old male tabby with white markings. He was a stray living outdoors, with no known previous owner. Juan is afraid if people approach him too closely, but he loves cats and kittens. He would like a home where he can maintain his distance until he is ready to come closer. Of course, he would love to have cat or kitten companions, too. At the shelter, Juan has started becoming more comfortable with people who have spent time near him while respecting his boundaries.
