Victor has learned that just being handsome isn’t enough to get noticed. You have to have a gimmick.
Victor spreads out in the middle of the floor in the Community Room so visitors have to go around him to enter the room. When someone goes around Victor and doesn’t stop to admire him, he makes it a point to walk in front of the person to get some attention. That works well for him, but so far not well enough to get him adopted.
Three-year-old Victor is everything you could ask for in a cat. He’s friendly, playful, and handsome. It won’t be very long before one of Victor’s admirers knows he is looking at a good thing and adopts him.
