Hi! I’m Mr. Bates, a 6 year old, handsome black male. I find myself back at Animal Ark, after being adopted 5 years ago as a kitten. I was returned because of some health issues, but a simple change in diet has since cleared everything up and I am ready to find my new home. I am a laid back and friendly guy who loves attention and playing. My previous owners said that I do well with other cats, dogs and children, although I am cautious around dogs, at first. Stop by the shelter today to meet me!
