Background Story:

Shazam! was left in a carrier on the doorsteps of a small animal shelter, so we don’t know much of his origins beyond that. While in the shelter, he started to display some reactive behaviors, like biting – most likely due to his young age (very playful!) and limited enrichment outlets. Because of his personality, and wanting to make sure the behaviors didn’t get worse/ingrained, they found placement with us at the Sanctuary in 2021 – where he can have a bigger room to frolick in and burn off all that energy. He’s cute as a button and very friendly, but sometimes those young dudes just need a lot of activity!

Over the years, our Cat Team have worked diligently to help Shazam! find positive outlets to release his pent up energy and to socialize with people properly. He has come such a long way and we are so proud of the progress he’s made, thanks to the amazing work of our staff. Shazam! is very intelligent and we love finding new ways to challenge him with training, puzzles, and enrichment activities! Shazam! can now give high-fives, ring a bell, and staff are even working on a “secret handshake” to do with him! It’s incredible seeing how he has shifted his energy from “naughty” behaviors to impressive stunts! In the warmer weather, Shazam! is one of our cats that enjoy going to our cat-safe play yards where he can get the zoomies, catch bugs, and even work on agility! Is there something this cat can’t do?! We hope one day we can find Shazam! a home where they can appreciate his sparkly personality and would love to continue his training!
