A life of peace and contentment came to an abrupt halt for Dorayaki last year when his owner had to be hospitalized.

This 11-year-old cat is named after a Japanese confection, which may seem odd but at least the both of them are sweet. Dorayaki is gentle, sensitive and rather timid, which means the recent upheaval has likely been hard on him. However, his shyness melts away once he gets to know you. He’ll be sticking to you in no time — and not in the way an excess of sugar can.

Dorayaki has beautiful colored fur, still wonderfully soft and shiny, belying his years. He’s charming, a simply delectable fellow, and he’s looking for a new home and a new best buddy.
