- Super cute guy who loves ear scratches and head rubs

- Loving, interactive cat who will start purring the moment you walk in the room and crawl into your lap for pets

- A little petting can go a long way with him sometimes, so he's looking for mature, cat-experienced people who will understand his signals and give him space when he needs that

- Does not like being petted on his lower back near his tail and will quickly let you know it's not OK

- Really fun guy who likes to play and bat at toys

- Has the best facial expressions and an adorable snaggletooth

- Not a great fit for young kids, so he's looking for a mature home (maybe older teens or just adults)

- Not a fan of other cats and dogs and needs to be the only pet in his new home

- Change can be stressful for him, so he may need time to decompress and may be happiest in a quiet, predictable home

- Will be an awesome friend for people who love cats with lots of personality!

This cat has shown signs of overstimulation while in the shelter. Lots of handling, playing with hands, and excessive petting can cause them to overstimulate, which can result in scratching and/or biting. This cat is looking for experienced cat owners who will watch this cat's body language while interacting to note signs of overstimulation (tail waving, fur rippling, dilated pupils, ears turned back and quick body movements) and be willing to respect their boundaries. This cat will also benefit from interactive toys such as wands and ball spinners while playing. We are happy to speak with you more when you visit and can provide post-adoption resources. If you can give this cat mental stimulation, patience and space when they need it, please consider adopting! They would love to be your sidekick and buddy for life!
