Dayton is a loving boy, but hasn't quite mastered the art of being a lap cat yet - there is too much to explore and play with! He makes a point to stay within arms reach if his humans are in full cuddle mode on the couch though, he can't pass up a quality tummy rub!

Practically anything can be used as a toy in Dayton's opinion. He has a long energetic streak, and loves to chase, bat, jump for toys, or even just wrestle with a friend to help use some of it! Dayton has easily gotten along with the feline-friendly dog in his foster home, and adores playing with his brother and the resident cat. He would thrive in a home with playmates around to interact with! Dayton and his brother Dallas would be an excellent cat starter pack if you're looking for ready made lifelong friends. You can learn more about Dallas here: https://bit.ly/3xkchG9.

When Dayton isn't in crazy-cat mode, he is actually a pretty calm and quiet cat. If he is craving pets, his gentle squeak comes as a reminder. This seems to be the only time he uses his meow and it is so sweet it barely counts! Once he starts receiving pets, the purrs start coming and don't stop!

If your home has been missing a dapper-dressed feline with an unmatchable amount of energy - Dayton is the guy for you! Contact APA! today to see about adopting Dayton into your family.

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.
