A super-friendly green-eyed tuxedo cat, Sphinx will light up your home with his warmth and chatty meows. Sphinx is 2 years old, so he is still youthful, with all of the benefits of an adult cat. Sphinx has a magnetic personality and captures the attention of everyone he meets. He has a lot of fans among the shelter’s staff but is still looking for the PURRfect home.
