Loving, Friendly, Social

Cousin Itt is the sweetest creature you'll ever meet! This handsome guy is a friendly, easygoing sweetheart who is happiest when he's cuddling up with his people or fellow cat and dog pals.

Cousin Itt may have had a rough life before becoming the happy kitty he is today. When Cousin Itt first came to his foster people, he was missing a lot of hair and was scared of everything, but after being given tons of love and affection, his personality quickly started to show and now he's thrilled to be living the good life!

Although cuddling his his absolute favorite activity, playing is a close second. Cousin Itt loves to play with strings and old shoelaces, and he'll get "the zoomies for about ten minutes a day, a burst of energy that sends him running around the house and is very cute to watch!

Cousin Itt's friendliness reaches to species of all types! He's become cuddle buddies and playtime pals with the other foster cat and the resident dog, and he has gotten along with every other dog he's met. Unlike other cats who may be a little freaked out and hide when company comes over, Cousin Itt is quick to approach guests and jump up in their laps to say hi!

In general, Cousin Itt is a fairly quiet cat, except when he's looking for his dinner! Since he's so easygoing, it's easy to picture Cousin Itt easily adapting to any home, whether it has other cats, dogs, kids, whoever - he's happy to be around anyone!

Cousin Itt will be happiest in a forever home where he's curled up in a lap getting a lot of love, so if you're up for pleasing this sweet guy with endless head rubs and petting, ask to meet Cousin Itt today!
