Handsome, Shy, Lovebug

Meet Dimitri! He's a little shy right now, but we can tell there's a total softy inside of him. Dimitri tends to keep his distance from humans, but he's still a sucker for a good scratch! Give him a few head scritches and watch him melt! When he is in a lovey dovey mood, Dimitri will curl up by your side for some snuggles. Dimitri is still timid when asking for cuddles, so he'll usually approach when he thinks you're not looking!

Dimitri's energy levels are highest during the evening/night; he doesn't like to party until the sun goes down! Dimitri especially appreciates a nice wand toy and will happily amuse himself by swatting at them. He also likes toys that move as long as they aren't too loud.

Dimitri is looking for a peaceful, quiet home where he can learn to come out of his shell. He has a tendency to hide under furniture all day long, so he could use a guardian with the time and patience to work on his socialization. He doesn't need a lot of attention but having a human presence around should help him get a bit braver! Dimitri also has a habit of kicking up his litter so much sure to have a litter box with high sides in the home for him.

Currently, Dimitri is living with another kitty. Dimitri has shown interest in her and will play with her under the door, but he is still timid around her because she is so energetic. Until Dimitri grows a little bit more confident, living with another high energy cat may not be the best for him.

If you'd like to provide this shy sweetheart with a loving home, contact us soon!

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.
