Meet Chalky. He is 1-year-old blue and white domestic short hair. He came to the shelter as a stray and sadly no one came to claim him. Now he is on the search for a new forever home, where he can be kept indoors only to keep his fur clean and mat-free. Chalky can be a little scared of other cats, so he would need a slow introduction to any other cats he would be living with.
