Pet of the Week: Meet Marcus

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – It’s time for Mass Appeal’s pet of the week… today we’re introducing you to a shy little guy named Marcus!

Name: Marcus – Hero Adopter Needed
Breed: Domestic shorthair cat
Age: 7 months old
Sex: Male
Color: Black & White

Handsome Marcus came to us from another shelter, so we don’t know much about this mystery man. We do know that he’s very shy and seems to have had little socialization with people, so he is quite skittish and will need your love and patience as he acclimates to a new home. He must be confined to a single, small room with a litterbox, food, water, and some toys while he adjusts. If you have other animals in the home, that’s fine. We’re not sure how he’ll do with children, but if they respect his space and approach him calmly, that’s ideal. If you’re interested in Marcus, please visit and click on his photo for more info or to adopt him.
