About:   I am a little shy guy to start with so I need my human to show me lots of love and shower me with attention so that I get comfortable with you.  
I was born in a boat in a shed so as a very young guy I had no interaction with humans, so I still find it a bit overwhelming.
I do love to play with toys and chase those dangly things around the room

Name:  Bailey

Breed: DSH
Born: 2nd January 2017
Sex: Male
Adoption Fee: $150.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About: My name is Bailey and I am 7 years old. I was adopted by an elderly gentleman
back in 2020 who unfortunately has had to surrender me back to yaps in 2024 due
to some ongoing medical issues and too many trips to the hospital. ☹
I have visited the Yaps cat boarding facility many times over the past few years.
Here is what the Yaps boarding staff say about me:

Bailey is a very handsome but independent cat. He is not a fan of being picked up
at all therefore he would not be suitable in a home around children.
Bailey does however love food and a good back scratch sometimes!
He has a very unique meow too which he is quite proud of! If you are looking for an independent cat that likes doing his own thing most of the time, as well as eating, sleeping and talking of course…then Bailey could be your new best friend!
