Talkative, Handsome, Cuddly

If you looked at his photos, you probably already figured out why Chaplin is named Chaplin - it's because he has the tiniest little Charlie Chaplin mustache! In addition to being over-the-top cute, Chaplin is friendly and chatty, like being with your best friend and talking about life. He is so sweet and is the best company - you never feel alone with Chaplin around providing affection and sparkling conversation.

Chaplin - called Chappy in his foster home - loves, loves, loves cuddling and being pet! He has a warm and outgoing personality, quickly befriending anyone who will give him loving attention. He is quite affectionate, and will follow you from room to room. Then, he'll wander off to spend some time on his own.

Besides snuggling and spending time with you, his favorite activity is watching birds from the window and "talking" to them! He's not too interested in toy mice or balls yet, but we are still hunting around for the "right" toy for him - he seems like the kind of guy who would love playtime.

Chaplin has an enlarged colon, which causes constipation; to keep things moving properly, he takes a mixture of medications. He takes them easily and like a champ! He needs to take his meds on schedule and eat a wet food diet.

Chaplin is an easy-going guy who seems to adapt quickly. As he settles into a new environment he starts checking things out, and in no time at all he is confidently roaming the whole house! He would do well with people to love and talk to - talk to him, and he will answer back! - who will keep him on his meds schedule and monitor his health. Also, a window with a perch where he can see what the birdies are up to would be a bonus!

Chaplin is sweet and loving, and easily shares his sunshiny good nature. He's a sweetheart, a darling, and simply the best! Contact us today to arrange a meet & 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.
