When Christopher first came to APA! as a found stray, he was hesitant to let people touch him. Now he loves getting head pets and cheek scratches from his foster family! His story is a Disney movie-waiting-to-happen: from alone on the streets to blossoming into a cuddly, loving sweetheart. Now all he needs is his Prince Charming or Princess Charming to whisk him away to his new forever castle!
However, Christopher appreciates the simple things, and has no need for all the fancy frills of an extravagant cat lifestyle! It only takes places to snooze and places to perch to make this guy happy. He prefers to spend his days calm and relaxed in a sunny windowsill or in a comfy bed. You probably have a Christopher-friendly home without even trying!
Christopher gets along with the resident cats in his foster home; he was given ample time and a slow introduction to them, and he is fine hanging out with them. He's not interested in playing with them, and is content to just let them be. He would do well in a home with an older, less active cat who respects Christopher's boundaries, though he could likely get used to a younger, more active cat, as long as you gave him the time and space to acclimate.
Christopher and the large dogs in his foster home pretty much ignore each other. Christopher watches them, and they barely give him a look as they walk by. This seems to perfectly suit both Christopher and the dogs!
Christopher likes to find a quiet, uninhabited room in his foster home and chill out there, happy to hold down the fort while you are away at work. He doesn't need to launch into crazy playtime when you come home, either, he's just happy to hang with you. He eats a hairball control/high fiber food designed to help with his sensitive tummy.
Christopher would thrive in a quieter home with adults who appreciate a low-key kitty. He could learn to live other cats, and he would also be great as Your One True Love. Contact us today to see if you and Christopher are a perfect fit!
