The Basics: Hello there, I’m Sterling. I’m a distinguished gentleman looking for a new home. I’m quiet and affectionate, but I can be shy at first. It takes me some time to trust, but once I do, I’ll be your good buddy. I do really well with other cats who don’t pick on me. I came here after my last person went into assisted living. In that home, I supposedly lived in a garage and my person thought I was not friendly. Sadly, I didn’t get much attention, but I actually adore it and I am extra gentle!
I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (an enlarged heart). The heart specialist said I don’t need any medicine currently, but I should have a recheck of my heart in 9-12 months to see how it is doing.
Likes: I love cheek rubs and any kind of petting once I trust you are safe. I do well with other cats and have good manners. I go nuts for cat nip! It’s one of my favorite things.
Dislikes: I’m on the shy side and I spook easily with loud noises or when people go too fast with me.
Looking for: A home to give me lots of attention and understand I might need some care for my heart in the future.
My estimated birth date is 6/1/2017.
