Adopt Me: Shy Timon keeps getting overlooked (adopted)

Don’t let his calmness fool you, he loves to play and can be heard yelling from a mile away when it's feeding time

ElliotLakeToday, in partnership with the Society For Animals In Distress, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hey there, my name is Timon. I am a year and a half old and I'm a pretty big boy! I was surrendered with my brother Simba, who has already been adopted. I’ve been at the shelter since April 29, 2019.

I was a super shy guy when I got here, the girls at the shelter couldn’t find me half the time because I’d burrow under blankets to hide. I have come a long way now, I’m still a little shy but mostly just enjoy my 'me time'.

I’m mostly white with cream-coloured spots and I have the greenest eyes according to the girls at the shelter. I’m easily overlooked when people come to visit looking for a cat because I keep to myself and usually just lay on the cat tower sunning, or on the windowsill with Sully.

Don’t let my calmness fool you though! When it’s feeding time, you can hear me yell from a mile away – or so I’ve been told. And I enjoy playing with the toy that squeaks like a mouse and lights up. I let my inner kitten shine when I get the attention and want to play!

Come down and meet me, I am so ready to find my forever home. I won’t greet you at the door in the cat room, but I will be happy if you come find me!

I have been flea and worm treated, fully vaccinated and neutered. You can come and meet me Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. or in the evening 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and even on weekends between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. or 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
