George is a handsome, 9-year-old cat. He is a little on the shy side and may like to hide until he's comfortable in a new home. George has possibly spent a good deal of time outside, because he has reportedly tried to run out the door and escape sometimes. He'll need a home that can watch to make sure he doesn't get loose, or provide him with safe outdoor opportunities whereby he is still restrained.
