MARION (WSIL) -- Meet Graham, a young kitten in search of his "furever family."
"He's 7-months-old. He's currently one of our longest residents. He came in as a stray," says Becca Baird, director of Finding Forever Animal Rescue.
Baird says Graham has been at the shelter for two months. "He was a little shy when he first came in. That kind of hindered him at first, and now he is no longer shy. We don't think it'll take long now that he's got his personality showing through. He's just a big ol' goofball."
Baird says now that Graham has adjusted, he loves to play and soak up the attention. "Anything you find whether it's a box, a string toy, or somebody donated little catnip sticks, he loved those. Pretty much anything he can get into he's in heaven."
Graham is easy going and gets along with everyone, including other pets.
"With other cats, I'll catch him romping around through tunnels with them, laying with them. He'd probably do great with dogs once he had a good introduction period. He's just a, he's a happy guy," states Baird.
When adopting a new cat, there are a few things you can do to make the transition easier.
"We always suggest starting them in a seperate room for seven days to kind of help acclimate them and get them use to their new surrounding. Normally they adjust a lot quicker that way," explains Baird.
If you're considering adding to your family, this week the adoption fees have been lowered.
"We're actually lowering them all to $50 for one or $70 for two. Fully vetted and they've been spayed or neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, dewormer and flea treatment and are ready to find their forever home."
