My name is Cindy Avola and I manage the small cat shelter where Citrus is currently located.

Citrus is approx. 2 years old and was found as a stray in Brockton. He was trapped, brought to a foster home (for a short period of time) then he came to Happy Tails Pet Rescue in Somerville so we could find him a loving forever home.

Citrus is not your run of the mill cat. He is very sweet but extremely shy. He does not like to be picked up and he will discourage this by finding a place to hide. He is food motivated and he will come out of his hiding spot if you offer him something good to eat. Once he is done, he will retreat to his safe and secure spot which (right now) is his kennel. We keep the door to his kennel open so he can come out and roam around the shelter which we think he does when it’s quiet. He’ll accept chin and head scratches. He even likes it when we touch his paws. He gets very nervous when attempts are made to pick him up. Citrus is not aggressive. He does not bite, scratch or act out……he’s just extremely shy.

Citrus must go to a home with another super friendly cat. Citrus will not do well in a home with small children or dogs. Citrus needs to be in a quiet home with a experienced cat person.

Citrus is neutered, healthy and up to date with all of his vaccinations.

If all the above requirements are met and you are interested in meeting Citrus, meet and greets will only be arranged if you visit our website and fill out our adoption appliction.

Thank you.
