Shaquan. (Sandy Geddry)

Shaquan is a handsome feline and he wants everyone to know it.

Six-year-old Shaquan knows how to attract attention to himself. He sits at the front of his kennel and calls people over to see him with a short, loud meow. It usually gets him the attention he is looking for.

Shaquan is a gentle kitty. If you are willing to spend some time with him, you will quickly become attached. He is ready to be a great companion. He will wait up for you and listen to your day. You can count on him to be around whenever you need him.
