Meet Kiki, a gentle, 3-year-old, orange-tabby-and- white domestic shorthair mix boy. He’s a bit bashful when meeting new people, but loves to be petted once he gets to know you. He came to the SPCA of Texas on Jan. 31 when he was surrendered to an Animal Cruelty Investigator because his previous owner could not properly care for him. He adores other cats, enjoys soaking up the warm sun, having meaningful chats and people watching. Kiki is coming out of his shell and gaining confidence every day and would appreciate a family who can be patient with him. Because he can be a bit shy, he may do best in a home without children under 10. Kiki has been neutered, microchipped, tested negative for FIV/FeLV and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Come hang out with this sweet soul today! #152074
