Curious, Sweet, Smart

Meet Patrick, a handsome silver guy who is easygoing and people-loving! Patrick is looking for some humans to hang out with who are just as chill as he is. He's already picturing himself watching TV on the couch next to you, getting lots of pets, and chasing after the toys you throw for him!

Patrick is timid and standoffish in new situations, but it doesn't take him long to warm up. He just needs a little time to familiarize himself with his new environment (so don't worry if you can't find him the whole first week he's living with you). Once he's feeling comfortable in his new space, Patrick turns into a big sweetheart! This is when you will find him seeking you out for pets and to curl up in your lap. He loves to lay in your lap when you're sitting on the floor!

Although Patrick usually seems more interested in chilling with his humans than he does in playing, he will play with toys and his people every now and then - so far, the catnip mice toys have been his favorites! Even if he isn't the most playful kitty, Patrick has such a big personality. Described by his foster as "very funny", Patrick is known to wag his tail and join in on webcam meetings!

It's unknown whether Patrick has met any other cats, dogs, or kids, so he would probably be happiest in a quiet home with lots of space to play his week-long game of hide-and-seek as he opens up. Just a little patience with Patrick will go a long way, and he's sure to become a fun, sweet, and loyal best friend!

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.

APA!’s Barn Cat Program Provides You With Your Favorite Whiskered Workers

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.
