Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Meet Humphrey, a 4-year-old domestic short-haired tuxedo cat hoping to warm up to you.

Since coming to the Fort Worth Animal Care & Control of Texas from another shelter, he’s been “waiting for his forever home for a while,” Sherri Eason, manager of the PetSmart Charities’s everyday adoption center in Fort Worth, tells PEOPLE. “He is a very sweet, loving cat who just needs some time to get to know you.”

Although the feline is shy at first, that will change. He really “starts to warm up once he’s in someone’s lap,” adds Eason. “He really just needs time to acclimate to a nice, quiet home and have the chance to be someone’s forever friend.”

Humphrey is neutered and has had all vaccinations.

Interested in adopting Humphrey? Contact the PetSmart Charities everyday adoption center inside the PetSmart store in Fort Worth, Texas, at 817-731-4353.
