A Domestic Short Hair named Yoby is available for adoption at Best Friends Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah...



Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Primary Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: Adult
Color: White
Sex: Male

If you can't find Yoby, he's probably eating! He wants to know everybody (human, that is) and will entertain you with his wand-toy inspired moves. This sweet, active boy (born in 2012) arrived at Best Friends from Los Angeles. You can talk to him about anything, or engage him in some petting time, and he'll accept with enthusiasm. He is playful, sweet and a bit goofy. He enjoys going on sleepovers and taking rides in a stroller. When it comes to other cats, he can crash a crowd like a herd of buffalo. He has no qualms about pushing himself center stage. Yoby has Feline Leukemia (FeLV), so he'll need to be an only cat or live with other FeLV+ cats. He is a delightful cat who'd love for you to take him home.
