Affectionate, Hilarious, Cat-Lover 

If Anders had her way, he'd be petted and scratched all day long. This guy is all about affection and isn't afraid to show it! He'll stick his head out beckoning for a scratch and will blissfully arch his back when he gets one. Belly rubs and being picked are just fine and this orange and white sweetheart adores being close to you, as in RIGHT next to you, touching if at all possible. Night time means more comfy people time whether it's sleeping beside you, at the foot of your bed or cozily spooning.

Anders loves the company of other kitties and will happily chirp at them...even the less than friendly ones! When confronted by a hissy cat in his foster home, Anders didn't take offense. Instead, he let out a quizzical chirp as if to say "Hey there...what's wrong?" He's a lover not a fighter and a hilarious one at that! Dogs are fine by him too. He gets along with the canine in his foster home after first sizing him up and determining he had definite friend potential.

Anders enjoys a little play time and some exploring, but he's past the "race around the house and wake everyone up at 2 am" stage, preferring snuggles to rampages. He has an adorable way of flopping down with a plop, roll and chirp when you talk to him...guaranteed to warm your heart every time! This tidy dude has impeccable litter box manners and loves using his turbo scratcher or cardboard scratchers for his scratching needs.

Anders has a sweet, easy going temperament and would do well in most any home that included a cat buddy or two and loving humans. He'd likely do well with calm, gentle cat-experienced kids and would be a happy, furry pleasure in a big home filled with people or a one bedroom apartment with someone who works all day, so long as she has a cat friend by him side.
