Mercury seems like he would be a really sweet cat if he's just give the time he needs to settle down and build confidence. He hides from people most of the time. He seems like he might be interested, but mostly wants to watch what you're doing from a distance. He's okay with other cats, but it takes a little time and patience for him to make friends.
We estimate he was born around 2013 and he came from a shelter in California. Mercury is looking for a person who's willing to take things at his pace, and give him the loving home that he needs.
