Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Boots, a handsome 6-year-old tabby who is destined to be an Instagram star.

This adorable guy has been at the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, New Jersey, for quite a while after being plucked from an overcrowded shelter – and no one can figure out why.

“He is incredible: laid-back, friendly, affectionate, and likes other cats. He gives the best headbutts and loves to get massages,” says development coordinator Abby Berenbak. “He has a fan following at the shelter where he is adored by the masses.”

Boots is also a ham in front of the camera and welcomes the chance to dress up, which is why he’d make the purr-fect subject in your Instagram photos.

“He really does love to dress up – you can also see him modeling his ‘Superkitty’ cape in our photo contest,” says Berenbak, click here to see that uh-mazing pic, it’s a framer!

If you think this fashion-forward feline is the friend for you, contact the shelter for more information on how to adopt him.
