Zail is still learning that toys and humans are fun. He and his littermates Zenona and Zeke came to us as scared little kittens. Zail is still the most shy of the bunch, but he's starting to come out of his shell in his foster home. He watches and follows his braver sister Zenona around, and is learning from her how much fun it can be to chase toys!
Zail will need a patient, loving home, with people who will encourage him to relax and have fun, but let him go at his own pace. He might also do well with a calm, confident kitty friend who can keep reminding him how nice it can be to live with humans.
All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
