Optimus Prime, domestic shorthair

Optimus Prime is the sweetest. He’s a male domestic shorthair kitten currently housed at the Animal Haven.

He is already vaccinated. He has work to do on house-training etiquette.

There’s no information on Optimus Prime’s profile about how he does with children or other animals, so it’s worth asking the Animal Haven directly.

Notes from Optimus Prime’s friends:

This sweet boy came to Animal Haven with his brother, Bumblebee. Before arriving at Animal Haven, Bumblebee contracted a respiratory infection that damaged his eyes. After treatment from our medical team, this sweet and cuddly boy is feeling much better, but will most likely never regain full vision. He is very bonded to his brother Bumblebee and ideally they would be adopted together.
