I'm kind of a big deal!

Our sweet boy Slim Jim's life is the stuff movies are made of! Adventure, drama, love, comedy, he's experienced it all. He found himself on the run from authorities (Animal Control) as a small kitten. He managed to avoid capture for several months and survived in the woods by the shelter. He eventually found his true love, Bojangles chicken! A volunteer would bring Slim Jim & his sister chicken almost everyday to try to befriend them and ultimately bring them to PAWS. We successfully caught his sister and she was able to find a home. Slim Jim came up everyday for his chicken but we still couldn't catch him or trap him. One beautiful Sunday, Slim Jim decided to hang up his wandering kitty boots and come inside the cat room. He walked in on his own and we quickly put him in a cat condo! He became an instant hit in the cat room. This little kitten who had outsmarted us for so long had finally decided to be our friend. We took him on a journey to another rescue about 4 hours away. The same rescue that helped his sister. Well, Slim Jim was not a fan of the change and went into total panic mode. His auntie, Jo, came to his rescue and without a second thought drove the 4 hours to pick him back up and bring him "HOME" to PAWS. He was so relieved to see her and settled back into his comfort zone as soon as he arrived back to the shelter. We would like for anyone interested in Slim Jim to meet him at the shelter, on his turf. That way you can see his true, loving, playful  PURRsonality. He will probably need some time to adjust to a new environment once he gets home but we know once he trusts you, he loves with his whole heart! We also recommend chicken!! We've been on this journey with Slim Jim for quite a while now and we're devoted to his happiness. We can't wait to watch his HAPPILY EVER AFTER!!
