Slim loves to snuggle. he is a purring machine, and will knead you gently while you rub his ears, and then fall asleep on you. He has no problem investigating, but takes a while to get comfy with a location, and after he gets comfortable with you he'll love to be around you all the time. Once he really gets to know you, he'll put his paw on your arm to say "please cuddle!" and roll onto his back for a tummy rub.
That Slim is such a sweet boy is really amazing as he has a sad backstory. He was abandoned outside this winter and had a rough go of it. He came to us as a scrawny, skinny boy, unspayed, with bad teeth and matted, ratty fur. But over the last couple months he has made an amazing turnaround! We nursed him back to health and has had teeth removed. Because of this, he's a bit of a pirate - his lip catches on a fang, and he looks like he is snarling at you (two teeth) or sneering at you (one tooth). And he drools when he sleeps (but who doesn't???) Otherwise he is completely fine, health-wise. He may look a little ferocious, but he really is a pussy cat (obvs).
Slim has one little behaviour bugaboo: when he's unsure or nervous he may pee on something to say "mine". This is not unusual cat behaviour. When you first take him home, keep him in a small space until he feels secure enough to feel at home.
