Description

Marlin came in with his sister, Moai when his person became homeless. He is still a bit nervous here at the shelter but he is another shy cat who really warms up if you take the time to get to know him. He definitely needs encouragement to make new friends but once you do, he starts to relax a bit more with each visit. It will take some time in a new home to get settled and learn to relax. He and his sister will need someone patient and understanding of their little quirks. They would benefit from a calmer household. He is the more reserved of the pair but both are very affectionate and cuddly cats. Just give them some time. Start slowly, quietly, gently. Don't rush your interview with them. A couple of easy chin scratches, maybe some soft words to soothe and reassure them. Nothing demanding, let them ease into it. Marlin does drool freely when you cuddle with him and he tends to give some love nibbles when he gets overstimulated so pay attention to his behavior. If he's getting too serious with the cuddling and rubbing against your hand, you might want to take a step back and let him relax a little bit. None of it is done with aggression, he's just a bit overstimulated. Many cats become overstimulated with too much handling but most people don't recognize what is happening and continue with their petting or brushing until the cat reacts. So get to know Marlin and his sister slowly and you'll quickly recognize what makes them happy and comfortable. Both are sweet, affectionate, snuggle bunnies.We want this pair to go home together.
