Fido has an incredibly loving, affectionate side that is just waiting to flourish. When you approach him, he'll walk right up to you with a sweet greeting and rub all over you, enjoying your pats and attention. His stunning peridot-colored eyes have an enchanting way of holding your gaze. He'll rub his face all over you (and everything around you!) as you run your hands over his beautiful, touchably-soft, pure black coat, purring like a motorboat. He also has sweet mews and chirps, in addition to being so doggone handsome!

But just like we all do, Fido wants his boundaries respected, and he's working on being more polite about letting people know when he's done with cuddle time. He came to APA! from a pretty tough situation, and is dealing with the anxiety that it left him with. But he clearly has so much love in his heart and after everything that people have put him through, is still ready to love on anybody who walks up to him!

At the end of the day, this boy still has hope. What he needs now is someone who will have a little hope in him in return.

With patient volunteers who sit quietly with him and let him be himself on his own terms, Fido has made lots of progress learning to politely walk away when he's finished with cuddles instead of getting grumpy. We know that with an adult-only home where he can be the only King of your Castle, and a patient owner with an open heart, Fido can overcome the fear that he has from his past and let his affectionate, friendly self shine. Can you be this boy's saving grace?

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.
