I love: Dusty loves to follow you around the house!

Dusty is a sweet, fun, playful, handsome and friendly, eight-month-old, male, orange tabby kitten looking for a loving guardian. Dusty loves to follow you around the house! He enjoys playing with his toys and adores rolling with his catnip toys. He also enjoys people and loves to be pet. Poor Dusty landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control paralyzed after being hit by a car. Lucky for him, a foster mom for Famous Fido’s brought him home and nursed him back to health. He’s not quite sure what to think of other cats. But, he lives with a Yorkie and a Poodle who he tolerates. He’s afraid of larger dogs at this point in time and his foster mom is working on his cat socialization skills. Dusty uses his litter boy and scratching post like a good boy. He rubs against your legs and purrs and purrs. Sometimes when you reach to pet him he flattens to the ground as if he’s accustomed to being hit. It breaks your heart to see that response. However, with time and love he should learn to be more trusting.
