Bart is a 5 month old kitten, born in mid-April 2016. He's got a short, sleek coat with fun black & white markings, and a black spot for a beard!

Now that his sibling are all adopted, Bart has been making great progress! He hates to be alone, loves other cats, and purrs like the dickens. I can hold him for hours while watching am movie on the couch and he stretches out and purrs himself to sleep on me.
And he loves to play! Balls, mice, wand toys-- you name it, he loves it. And he loves big cats. He has never hissed at any of my cats, but ducks under their chin and wants to be groomed and snuggle. They aren't always thrilled with this and have hissed or smacked him a few times, but it doesn't phase him, he'll continue to look at them adoringly, just wanting them to love him back.
Bart is still a bit nervous being picked up in large open spaces (i.e. the middle of the room) so we are working on that. He's made tons of progress since his last brother was adopted Labor Day weekend. He sleeps on the bed with me and my cats. He has several "safe spots" where he is relaxed and comfortable with me approaching-- my bed, the cat trees, and the window seats.
With some more time and patience, he's going to turn into an obnoxiously loving cat. I expect he'll always be a little cautious of strangers, but he's going to bond very strongly with his person. Just be prepared for very loud purring!
