Cool, Silly, Loving

You're gonna get a kick out of Stuart's Kicks! He loves to chase after toys that can move fast, like a rolling ball or a toy mouse that you toss. He will make you laugh as he chases after his favorite toys because he has a bit of a silly run!

Once he knows you, Stuart will claim you as "his" by rubbing all over you! He will rub against your legs, your arms, and even the furniture. "Mine. Mine. Mine." seems to be what Stuart is saying. He hasn't shown his need-to-get-snuggly side yet, but he definitely welcomes your attention and wants your love. This friendly guy likes to hang out with his people.

Stuart is a chatty guy, too! He was chatty in his previous home, and even though he's still settling into his foster home, he arrived there ready to chat. He has super cute meows, and he's not afraid to use them.

In Stuart's previous home, it was reported that he enjoyed dogs and other cats. He was stressed when he arrived at the shelter, however, and did not seem to appreciate the company of his new feline roommates; he was so stressed that he would over-groom his luxurious coat to soothe himself.

And speaking of his luxurious coat...he has gorgeous, fluffy, rich black fur! And each foot has a set of perfectly-matched black toe beans. Nice kicks, you might say!

Stuart likes to get his scratch on, so make sure he has approved scratching devices; gently redirect him to those if he scratches outside the lines. He's a smart boy!

It was reported that in his previous home, Stuart didn't like catnip. About 50% to 70% of cats aren't affected by catnip, and apparently Stuart is in that group! Which is no biggie, because he's silly enough without it.

Stuart is outgoing and easy-going, but he wants some time to settle into everyone and everything new before he unleashes all of his chill upon you. He can be nervous, but it's only while he's learning to trust; be patient, and soon you and Stuart will be enjoying kicks and giggles together!

Stuart's Kicks has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. He can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about FeLV care.

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.
