Kensington's Story

Cute and quiet Kensington is a sweet and timid five-year-old boy who is ready for someone to love him! This gentle kitty is extremely shy, but slowly came out of his shell during the time he spent in his foster home. “Kensington is a very shy but very loving boy,” one foster says. “He is affectionate and loves pets around his head or chin” and purrs loudly when being pet. He likes to stay in his carrier a lot of the time, but there’s nothing like a good meal to entice him to come out! He especially loves his wet food. This sweet kitty isn’t too big on toys though. He’d much rather relax, spending calm and quiet evenings with his foster families. Kensington is absolutely adorable with a beautiful, lovely coat, and a sweet and gentle personality. Does he sound like the cat for you?

This mild-mannered guy would do best with a patient and experienced adopter who can give him time to come out of his shell. Kensington made lots of progress during his time in his foster homes, but he’d really love a forever home in which he can feel safe and loved! He’d probably enjoy a home with lots of boxes or other cozy cat beds so that he can feel secure. Since he’s not a huge fan of loud noises or wild atmospheres, he’d do best without young children. We know that once Kensington is in a loving home with a patient person, he will be the best kitty he can be! This is one super sweet boy, and we know with the right family, his true personality will shine through that adorable face of his! Meet him at the Lincoln Park Adoption Center today!

  • Did someone say 'treat'?  I'll take them all!
  • Was that a bird?  I love window watching.
  • I'm an explorer- I love to jump and climb!

  • I would love to find a home with children 15+. 
  • I need a little extra time to warm up to people I don't know.
  • I prefer quiet environments that aren't crowded.
