Friendly, independent, cautious!

If you are looking for a great cat, Scruffy is your dude! This handsome man is good for a first time cat owner because he is easy to care for. He is not a fan of new situations or environments, but once he feels safe and secure he can be extremely affectionate! He likes to be near you, whether it's sitting on the floor next to your chair or lying next to you in bed. Basically, if you are sitting or lying down, he'll trust you enough to be all over you. He will often forcefully nudge your hand as an indicator that he wants a good scratch! And he's also an excellent biscuit maker. Despite not liking to get his nails trimmed, he does like to knead your tummy.

Like all of us, Scruffy has standards! Scruffy seems to be particular about when he plays. Not everything can entice him, but he does like to hunt! So toys with tails are great for him! He's a mostly quiet guy, but he will ask politely if he's hungry or wants a door opened for him.

Scruffy wasn't a fan of being in the shelter and may not do well around other cats. He's never met any dogs or kids and would probably do best ad the single dude of the home. He would make a great companion cat! Scruffy would do well in a furrever home that is relatively quiet and with people who don't move around too quickly. He does, however, love small, dark places. He spends a lot of time under the bed, under the table, and the dark corner in between the wall and the couch in his foster home. He loves attention and even when he's scared or wary of strangers, he can't help but like a little head rub.

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
