Shelter Cats

Sharky

Two years ago, the last time we saw Sharky, he was an adorable playful kitten.
He was adopted, but then a few months ago he was returned – as a gorgeous fully grown and extremely angry cat.

His family claimed that they were returning him because of his aggressive behavior.
After a period of adjustment at PAWS, Sharky responded to the kindness of staff and shelter volunteers. He remembered that he liked people.
The only aggression we saw after that was directed toward feather toys!

Sharky is an enthusiastic hunter.

Friendly young Sharky would be most happy in a home where he’s the only cat.
Please visit him at PAWS.

Oh that’s sad, I’d say Sharky wasn’t the one with the behavior problems. Good luck handsome dude!

It is sad that for a cat to be returned, but it sounds like Sharky is much better off being away from that family.

That sweet face shows absolutely no aggression. We suspect Sharky was not getting the TLC he deserved. Nice to see he is happy and now well-adjusted. We’ll pray that he soon finds the right forever home. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Sharkey is adorable, playful and awesome. We’ve seen none of the aggression that family reported, so it makes you wonder, for sure! Beautiful photos, Maggie. You’ve totally captured Sharkey’s wonderful personality!

Aww, what an awesome dude. And a little bit of the hunter is not at all out of place, I think. Plenty of wand toy actin and maybe the odd mouse here and there makes a cat a perfect companion.

Poor Sharky. We have to wonder what his home life was like to make him so aggressive.

Oh it breaks my heart to imagine how poorly Sharky may have been treated in his first home. I’m glad he is at PAWS and happy, playful boy. I hope he will find a loving forever home he deserves!

Stories like this make me so angry. I’ll bet he was an abused kitty. I hope his next home loves him and treats him well.

Yup, I echo the others comments. Sharky isn’t the problem. Maybe a name c

whoops, sentence vanished. I’ll bet someone was using fingers while playing. It’s easy for kittens to learn to respond to fingers or hands as prey.

Sounds like his people created and fed his problem. I can’t even imagine the details of that. Hopefully, he’ll know nothing but love for the rest of his life.

That’s sad that he returned as an angry cat. But in the right hands (with PAWS), I’m happy that Sharky realizes people can be okay.
