Apollo, as you can see, is a handsome one-year-old orange tabby in robust good health. His appearance belies his inner sensitivity. Apollo is considered a special needs adoption because he requires a special home. Placed in a busy household including an unwelcoming resident cat, Apollo was stressed out. After one week in a quiet home he began coming out for lapsits and petting. Apollo remains easily upset by changes, but offer him a quiet, safe place home and he will heap you with affection.
