Shy, Sweet, Gentle

Slim Jim has really been through it in his 5 years of life, and now he's ready to settle down in a calm and loving home. He's not really a fan of shelter life, and spends most of his time curled up in his bed keeping to himself. He would love to have a home where he could just cozy up on the couch with his human and get pets and take relaxing cat naps. He doesn't have much interest in playing, so he'd be the perfect binge-watching companion. He'll even show his appreciation for pets with a big loud purr!

Slim Jim tolerates the other cats around him just fine and is respectful of their space. He is quite shy when you first meet him, so dogs and young children wouldn't be ideal for him. He has some special instructions for feeding time, and we'd be glad to fill you in on his routine. Slim Jim would love to just relax in a laid-back home with people who will give him some time to come out of his shell.

Slim Jim is a healthy FIV+ (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) cat. FIV+ cats typically live long, healthy lives! For more information, please contact APA! or read this FAQ: http://bit.ly/2DPxI43

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.
