Gentle soul; shy guy seeks furrever family to call his own.
Lil' bit had a rough start. He clearly had a home at one time, because he stayed near people, however, poor Lil' bit found himself living outdoors under a grill cover!
It's taken some time, because he's had to learn to trust again, but Lil' bit is finally ready to open his heart again to love a new family!
He does still have some fear issues: moving feet and fast movements will send him running, and while he has never scratched or bitten, he would be best in a home with older gentle children. But he does love other cats and gets along well, following the resident cats around, playing pounce and tackle. He also loves running around zipping from one end of the house to the other and up and down stairs at top speed! Enjoys balls, mice, feather wands, scratch boxes, every toy he's been presented with so far!

PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization.

PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
