Say hello to Featured Pet Nigel! Nigel is a handsome orange tabby who is seeking a home that can provide a calm, serene place for him to hang his hat. The mellow fellow is a social eater and enjoys dining in the company of others. He'll be so happy to have a mature individual, couple, or a family with older kids to call his own — the young man simply wants to be your one and only!

Nigel can be characterized as a shy lap cat. Once the two-year-old has gotten comfortable he'll knead you, though, and he takes pleasure in the occasional treat and sisel scratching posts.

A slow and patient introduction would be best for Nigel as he adapts to his new environment. Meet him today at Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital in downtown Tacoma! Please call (253) 274-0225 or visit www.metvetpets.com to learn more. #501694
