Super sweet 17-year-old orange tabby 'Morris'

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - He adores attention and is quite the purr factory. Morris, a cat who misses having a family and would like to get back into a home-setting

Morris is a 17-year-old orange tabby cat, yes, he's 17 and he's still got a lot of life left in him.

He had been in a loving home all his life until his owner passed away recently.

Director of the Humane Society of Angelina County, Paula Divello says, "He's got a lot of spunk left in him. If we wouldn't tell his age nobody would be able to figure it out. He sees great. He moves around great. You can hear it, he's a purr monster."

Morris is only missing one thing other than a new family.

"He lost his meow too. He doesn't meow. He makes meow face but nothing comes out but other than that very healthy guy as you can see extremely loveable just craving attention," said Divello.

Morris is an absolute love bug he's been the center of someone's world for 17 years and now he would like to be the center of your world."

He is an indoor only cat and has never been outside. Staff at the shelter says he was very well-taken care of. He is up-to-date on all his shots, rabies and has a microchip.

He's been at the shelter for about a month and is ready to go home.

"He's lovable. He'll actually come to you when you call him and he'll climb up and just craves attention. Very fluffy, very cuddly, he'll just crawl all over you. He'd probably spend 24-hours in a lap if you'd let him,  said Divello.
