This shelter cat has been waiting 10 YEARS for a forever home

Wilbur has been at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary since December 2009, patiently waiting for a home to call his own the whole time.

Although he has a couple of medical challenges that require a little help, Wilbur makes it as easy as he can and goes with the flow, which is a good thing since he manages the PR/Marketing office at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary while he waits. This sweet guy has feline immune deficiency virus (FIV), a heart murmur, and is getting subcutaneous fluids to help his failing kidneys. He has a couple of medicines for blood pressure but in usual Wilbur style, he doesn’t fuss a bit. Wilbur really loves to be with people and can usually find a way to wiggle into any activity. His purr is a pure moment of Zen, says Barbara Williamson, Media Relations Manager at Best Friends and Team Wilbur’s chief proponent.

Wilbur would prefer to be an only pet but can tolerate a mellow female cat or a dog who knows cat rules. Do you have room in your heart to give Wilbur the home he so deserves? To enquire about adoption, email
