Affectionate, Gentle, Lap Cat

We might not be the most objective, but we think Hayden is the most handsomest cat on the planet! He is always dressed to the nines in a tasteful gray tux. But it's not all about his looks - he's a well-mannered gentleman. He uses the litter box like a gent, and he minds the furniture as well.

Hayden loves being around people because 1) they have a lap, and 2) they give pets! In his world, head scratches are the best. (Or maybe belly rubs are the best. Hmmm, more research required...!) He will step over your tummy or laptop, if you're working, to get your attention. But he is super sweet and not pushy about it. And no matter how much you want to pet him, he can take it; bring on the petting! He's an affectionate and distinguished cuddler, and if he could talk, he'd probably recite a bit of Shelley or Byron while lounging in your lap. He's a classic dude.

Hayden has diabetes and requires some extra medical care, which may include regulated diet and/or insulin. For more information, please contact APA! He is splendid about taking his medicine, and will beg for food, which he likes to savor slowly, with periodic sips of water.

Similarly, Hayden plays some, but it's like you are recording him in slow motion! He is entertaining to watch - and calming, because it's at a measured pace, not a crazy-kitten pace. We have never seen him anything but mellow, unless the puppy in his foster home insists on bothering him, then Hayden has to put his paw down to such shenanigans.

You might not be surprised that Hayden is a Master Sleeper; he has perfected that and indulges in it as often as possible! His ideal home would be with someone who would love him and give him affection. He would do likely be fine with other pets, and even kids. Contact us today to set up a meet and greet!

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.
