Silk is a 3-year-old, black-and-white cat with green eyes who is sure to win you over with his gentle nudges, kind heart and playful personality. He’s ready to explore and can’t wait to find his forever home where he can lounge and play. Silk got his name because his fur is just as soft and luxurious as the fabric.
