Cautious, Playful, Reserved

Trick is a kitty who needs a secure place to call home. He is cautious around humans but in time will probably warm up and open his heart to the people who love him.

But his reserve doesn't stop him from playing with his toys or his sister with whom he currently shares a foster home. When he's feeling comfortable, he is one playful fellow. He actively plays with his toys and his foster sister but he might retreat when the humans get involved.

Trick is a bit hesitant to receive caresses from his foster guardian, but he's starting to warm up. His playful nature suggests that with time, he will become more trusting and engaged with his human companions. He just needs a home that will be patient with him while he adapts.

Trick has lovely black fur with a smoky grey belly. He is not a chatty catty; his foster guardian reports that he isn't vocal at all.

He gets along great with other cats but is not thrilled with a dog in the room - he runs the other way. That doesn't mean he won't eventually accommodate a dog in his lair, but he needs time to make sure everything is safe. He hasn't been observed with children but given his shy demeanor, he would probably do better with older children who understand his nature.

Trick is independent but he would benefit from a patient, loving guardian who could help him learn to trust and love. Many cats who are initially shy around people become the most devoted companions once they learn to trust their new environment. Trick's ideal guardian would be someone who understands that he just needs a little time and TLC to become the puur-fect companion.

Trick has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. Trick can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about FeLV care

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.

Some cats prefer mice-hunting to bird-watching, and some prefer laying in grass to sitting on laps. Here at APA!, we believe that barn cats still deserve a chance to live happy and healthy.
