Celebrate the new year with the cat in a hat! Others may have retired their Santa caps for the season, but Toby likes to take his time. The shy but playful 1-year-old lost his original family in an eviction, and shelter stress nearly did the tiger Tabby in. He became known as "Timid Toby" until his foster mom came to the rescue. She now calls him a quiet ladies man whose cross-eyed cuteness will melt your heart. Toby gets along with other cats and will come fully neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and more from Find them on Facebook @StFrancisAnimalRescue, and Happy New Year.
