SUPER Silly, Confident, and Animated!

This sweet boy is such a little prince. Artichoke loves attention and struts around to get it! He is super affectionate, enjoying pets and rubbing his body against you. He is this way with all visitors, what a social guy! When things are calm at the shelter he'll climb into laps for a cuddles. He really likes to burrow in his blankies so once in your home, we will have no problem making himself cozy in the bed!

Artichoke is high energy. He's loves being adventurous and playful. He really likes wand toys and catnip. He is incredibly vocal. He loves talking to you. He hasn't made many other cat friends, he mostly ignores the other cats. Artichoke prefers his human, big or small. He's got an absolutely gorgeous coat and walks around like he knows it. He loves doing figure 8's between humans legs and getting pets from them, but also likes exploring around on his own.

Artichoke needs to be in a home where he can get his energy out - even chasing a laser beam or leaping after a wand toy would be good for him. Teaching him to go on walks with a harness would be great. He equally needs attention and affection - he's a great companion cat for someone who wants a kitty to interact with often. He would do well with a family that offered multiple playmates.

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.
