Gentle, sweet, mellow

McKnight may take a minute to get comfortable with you, but once he does, he is ALL ABOUT love! He LOVES pets and will ask for them by headbutting your hand, putting his head under your hand for a "self-pet", and rubbing against your legs. He'll let you know how happy he is by purring, leaning into you, and doing elevator butts. He will even let you rub his belly and pick him up like the little baby man he is!

He isn't yet super-playful in the shelter, but will likely become more playful once he's settled into his own home with his own family. He does like scratch pads, though! He gets along peacefully with his feline roomies, easily living with them. He doesn't seek them out for affection or playtime, but is comfortable being around them and has no problem sharing space with them.

We are confident McKnight could blossom into the total lovebug that he is, once he has his own forever home. He would likely fit right into a calm home with loving people who give him time to adjust and settle in. All he wants is a cozy spot to nap and a friendly person who will give him some pets! He deserves it, and you deserve to be loved by this darling boy. So contact us today to arrange a meet-and-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.
