11 year old • Male
Atticus is a lithe, beautifully proportioned tabby with striking stripes and spots. He has blue-green eyes and a very sweet expression.
Atticus may look like a wild cat, but he's as tame as they come. He's a lap cat who loves to be petted and cuddled, expressing his affection with "kitty hugs" and gentle pats on the cheek. He's a clown as well a lover, who'll let you know when it's playtime and, if he's not getting through to you, will get his cat teasers down from the top of the file cabinet and play with them himself! Curious and active as he is, Atticus has very good manners, always using a scratching post.
He plays nicely with his foster sister and would do fine in a home with another non-aggressive cat. He would also be happy as an only cat in a home where there are people around a lot of the time, as he is very human-bonded.
Atticus was rescued from an area Animal Shelter.
