Toby Jo is a sweet boy who loves his head rubs and is getting used to the good life!

He was pretty scared when he first got to the shelter but seems to be coming around. And although he's still a bit timid, he's getting more comfortable with people, as long as he can go at his own pace.

He's about a year old and weighs 10 pounds. We haven't kid- or dog-tested him yet, but will update his profile when we have more information. He's in our cat room right and is doing well negotiating the shared space with our Queen Bee!

If you have a soft spot for the shy ones who are just learning that the world can be a good place, please consider Toby Jo. Fill out an application at
