Introducing Walnut! Walnut, his brother, Filbert, and their momma, Aveline, were rescued from Devore Shelter in late summer of 2018. Aveline is French for “Hazelnut” so all together, they make up our adorable little “nut family”!
Wally is certainly the nuttiest of the bunch. He and Filbert were just 6 weeks old when they were rescued from the shelter, so they’ve grown up in foster care, but that didn’t stifle this nuts’ confidence one bit. Once he’s decided you’re okay, he’s friends with everyone — feline or human — and he even tolerates the dog when she’s behaving!
Walnut loves to wrestle and play with his brother, and spring toys or wand toys are his favorites. He and Filbert both have a little cowlick in the fur on the top of their heads, causing a subtle mohawk, so they’re both just a little bit punk-rock, which comes out during their rambunctious play time!
Wally is a loveable guy — he seeks his foster mom out for pets, often head-butting her while she’s blow drying her hair in the morning! He’s not the type to curl up in your lap, but he’s certainly game for attention and will never turn down a good scratch from his human. If he’s not playing or looking for attention from his humans, he can usually be found sprawled out in a cat bed, often sharing with Filbert or Aveline, and taking turns grooming his bunkmate.
While they don’t need to be adopted together, Walnut would love to stay with his momma and/or brother, as they are his favorite cuddle buddies! Either way, he’d be happiest with another feline friend.
Wally tested negative for FIV and FeLV, he’s been neutered (though it was delayed just a bit due to an undescended testicle … which is how the vet came to give him the moniker “one-nut-Wally”!), he’s microchipped, and he is current on his vaccinations. If you think your home could use a little nutty infusion, Walnut’s the nut for you! Just file out the adoption application here.
