Baxter has a bashful side, especially before he gets to know you. But once he does, he's very cuddly, butting his head against you! He loves for you to hold him and will purr his delight, but he doesn't like to be picked up yet. He will come up to you for scratches and attention, though he might be a little shy and too polite to ask for them. He is the sweetest cat!

Baxter plays really well with his foster sibling who is close in age to him, and they are so cute together! He likes other cats, and we think he would be best with another nice cat in his new home.

When Baxter first came to APA! he hid for a while in his foster home. He has a sweet and tender nature. He will stay in your lap for a while, then he may jump down and spend some alone time in a quiet place. He likes to explore the house, though, and is doing so, more and more!

Baxter needs patient people in his new home who will let him get comfortable at his own pace. He is very handsome with his black coat, super cute white paws and tummy, and that dash of white on his nose! Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet.

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.

Do You Scoop the Poop?

You've heard it from us once, and you'll hear it from us many more times: Austin, please scoop the poop! But don't take it from us, take it from the experts.
