Dazzle Ships is an amazing name for a simple cat. His name is a World War I term where British and American ships were painted bold colors and crazy patterns in order to confuse the enemy of the ship's speed and location, thus evading torpedoes. This is true!

Now that we understand his name, let's get to know Dazzle Ships the cat. He is beautiful and minimally elegant, quite the opposite of his name. Being mostly white, with brown tabby markings on his head and tail and two somewhat round spots on his side, he is very distinct, and has sleek curves. Don't worry, his name may have dazzled enemies long ago, but he won't confuse his human. He is very versatile in communication.

He starts talking when he is hungry; and will continue a conversation with his foster. He tends to hang-out in the same room as his foster. Follows one around the house; maybe hoping to receive physical contact; he really seems to desire it. Or, maybe he misses a former human hoping that person will re-appear?

He seeks human attention. He'll jump onto one's lap or onto their bed, and rub his head against one's body in hopes to receive love in return. There is no question what he wants. Be gentle; if handled roughly there may be an occasional nip or scratch. He doesn't intend to hurt anyone; he hasn't learned a better way to communicate. With gentle handling and re-direction he will learn; just be patient, give him time, and be willing to work with him. APA! has personnel who will help you. Just inquire.

It is unknown his experience with other cats, dogs or kids. Probably small children would not do well due to his need for gentleness. Otherwise, with slow, calm introductions he would probably do fine with older children, a mature cat or dog.

Dazzle Ships would do well in any mixture of family that are willing to give him a lot of gentle attention and affection.

Come check this guy out. He is eager for a forever home. He will razzle-dazzle you with his wonderfulness!

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