Domestic Short Hair

I'm Strongbow! My name suits me well. I need a little time to feel safe around humans. I will definitely need an adopter who understands decompressing time in a new home. Once I know I'm safe I am a sweet boy with a purr machine. I love other cats, I am very affectionate with them. I don't mind dogs and I do well with kids! I also like to be up in high places.

Sunny was rescued from living on the street in Sell Arizona by a Good Samaritan who had been feeding the stray dogs in the area.  Sunny is slowly learning to trust humans more and more every day.
