Sweet Tuco can be quite shy at first, but his inner lovebug will come out soon enough! He might slink away if a new person approaches him, but just sit down and let him come to you, and he'll gladly ask for some pets! As he warms up to you, you'll learn that Tuco is a sucker for scritches!

And you'll be a sucker for his handsomeness! One ear is a little different than the other, his eyes are two different colors (one is light, one is dark!!) and he has that gorgeous orange tabby coat overlaying a pristine white "canvas." He truly is a work of art!

Tuco has not yet interacted with other cats or children, but he has met a few dogs (and not all were nice to him). So we don't blame him a bit for being nervous around a dog, but in his foster home he is slowly building up the courage to approach the resident nice dog.

Tuco's previous human moved out of the country and couldn't take him along, so he lost the only home he has ever known. That's a lot of sudden change for a sweetie like Tuco to adjust to! The ideal home for Tuco would be quiet, calm, and peaceful, with kind people who will love and cherish a gentle boy like him.

If Tuco sounds perfect for you, contact us soon to arrange a meet & greet! He's a darling.

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.
