Octopus and his two brothers Ocelot and Ostrich were found outside, sick and weak, when they were still just babies. What a difference a month in a loving foster home makes! Now they're all strong, healthy, very busy boys.

Octopus is clearly the leader of this little boy band. He was the first to eat on his own and use the litter box properly, and the first to understand that water is for drinking, not for slapping all over the room. He got well faster than his brothers did, so he carefully watched over them, cuddled them, and gave them kitty kisses to help them feel better. Now that they're all well, he indulges all of their whims. When Ocelot needs to run a kitty marathon around the house, Octopus will run right alongside him. When Ostrich wants to wrestle, Octopus will abandon his nap to join the wrestling match.

Octopus loves the camera! If you pull it out, he'll start posing! He's so handsome and he wants the whole Internet to know it. Octopus hasn't yet had actual contact with his foster's adult cats, but he watches them walk around his playpen and seems curious and eager to meet them.

Octopus is so intelligent and soulful, wise beyond his weeks. He would be a great companion for almost any family.

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.
