Shy, Sweet, Reserved

Big Baby is new to APA!, and he wants to be your big baby! He's a big boy with big fur. He was a lap cat in his previous home, but has been through a lot of sudden changes recently, and is understandably shy right now. But in the short time he has been in his foster home, he has already allowed his foster mom to give him lots of pets - and he will show his belly for some rubs! It's clear that he is sweet and gentle and is used to being affectionate - lap snuggling is next, we predict! - he just needs a little time to get used to everything new.

Big Baby and his sister, Lil Bit (130651), were adopted together as wee kittens, and have been together their entire lives! They also lived with the same beloved human, who recently became too ill to care for them, and made the heartbreaking decision to help them find a new loving and forever home. Lil Bit has helped Big Baby with the changes in their lives, frequently seeking him out, checking on him, and rubbing her face on him to say, "It's all going to be okay!"

It is obvious that these two gorgeous and engaging tuxedo kitties are bonded, love each other, and depend on each other, so they must be adopted together. Learn about Lil Bit here - https://bit.ly/48l6kIC

Give Big Baby some cozy places to tuck himself into and feel safe, and soon he will be following Lil Bit around the house, and then venturing out on his own! When he does, you can pet him and he will completely surrender to your gentle pets. And show his big furry tummy to you!

Big Baby and Lil Bit would love a quiet home with people who simply love them. They are easy and charming companions! Be prepared to have two adorable tuxies in your lap. And contact us today to arrange a meet & greet with Big Baby and Lil Bit!

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.
