(COASTAL PET RESCUE) Walnut continues to come out of his shell, but would rather take some time to get to know you before fully unleashing the bulk of his affection on you. He can be playful at times but would like to trust you first. He’s a cat’s cat and seems to get along well with his kitty roommates, so if you’re looking to add another feline to your family, he would be a good contender. We believe Walnut will thrive in a home with consistency, patience, and time to let him settle in and be comfortable to let loose and be himself. If you think this handsome fellow could be a good fit for you, submit an application and let’s get this guy adopted!
