Relaxed, Affectionate, Sweet

Lyon Duke has a beautiful tabby coat full of stripes, swirls and softness. His little tail is bobbed and is extra adorable! Lyon loves for you to pet him and especially enjoys head scratches...they are pure (and purr!) heaven for this affectionate boy!

Lyon has his own special ways of letting you know he loves you. It may be by tenderly licking your hand or it could be in the form of a playful bite. When he gives you either, or both, you can rest assured that he thinks you're the cat's meow! While he enjoys pets anytime, he doesn't tend to get cuddly during the day. But, late at night he likes to meet up with you for snuggles.

Lyon is mostly a low-energy guy. He'll sometimes play by himself, but he mostly likes to just chill out. He will seek out attention if he knows you're up and active. Then he'll go back into his laid-back mode and curl up for a nap. If you happen to have a box handy, he'll hop in and stay awhile.

Lyon only meows if he's stuck somewhere and needs assistance. His primary way of chatting with you is with a friendly chirp. It's so cute! Loud noises spook him, so a quiet, peaceful home would be best. Lyon has a barely perceptible limp in his hind leg. Something that must have happened in his past that doesn't seem to bother him. Just like the rest of his, he's gotten a ding or two along the way.

Lyon definitely has a lion's appetite! He loves a good meal and is always ready for one. But, he's learned to be patient thanks to his foster who taught him how to sit before getting his food. He's responsive to training, no telling what else this clever cat could learn. He would love for you to teach him some new tricks!

Lyon is such a sweet kitty who would be a wonderful fit for someone looking for a mellow cat who mostly likes to lounge and quietly share his love. His ideal home would be a calm one without a lot of noise and activity. If Lyon sounds like your kind of sugar bear, contact us to set up a virtual introduction!

APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
