Background Story:

Originally found as a kitten behind a dumpster, he lived and bonded with his first owner of 9 years until she was diagnosed with cancer and passed away in December 2018. Heartbroken and very shy he was fortunate to quickly get a second chance and was adopted to a new quiet home in April 2019. Developing health issues of her own, his new owner sadly was no longer able to care for him and Chewbacca had to give up his second home and come to the Sanctuary.

Current Status:

Coming out of his shell and bunk a little more every week, Chewbacca is starting to “own” his living room area. His small circle of friends continues to expand and he is enjoying a little more relaxed time out of his bunk. Attempts to wander into his neighbor Yuukis room are often met with sharp comments and cold shoulders by her. Thankfully he is happy to strut away for some quiet human attention.

Adoption Info:

Chewbacca is a super sweet, gentle teddy bear! He’s low-key and loveable, an absolute sweetheart who will shine in a quiet home. He’s a shy guy who would love some cozy companionship with his humans and would do well with a compatible cat friend!
