Doogie Howser is a silly looking boy with a heart of gold. He's a bit nervous around people until he knows he can trust you, but then he'll let you give him lots of head scratches. It's a sweet reward once you can finally touch Doogie's head, because then you know you're in the inner circle! In general he's not much for playtime, but if you dangle a wand toy near him for long enough, eventually he'll bat it around as if to say "okay okay I'll play with you, human!"

Doogie does well with other cats around and likes to rub up against them, so he'd have no problem having other friendly felines in his forever home. He also loves lounging around on cat trees or in windows, and adores treats! Doogie's perfect home would be one with patient humans that understand that he needs time and space to feel at home.

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.
