King is a confident, playful, sweetheart of a cat with lots of cute and quirky attributes. If you’re looking for a big personality to fill your home, look no further! King is very playful; his favorite toys are catnip mice, and he also likes to run and play tag around the house. He’s a total sucker for cat treats, and will come running at the faintest sound of the treat bag. After eating, he has a funny little habit of playing with his water bowl. He prefers to splash his paw into the bowl and drink from his paw, rather than the dish itself. This has led to some damp floors (and giggles) in his foster home.
When King isn’t stalking the catnip mice, he’s quite the companion to his people. He enjoys being nearby, investigating all activities in the house, and hanging out when you’re cooking in the kitchen. He's always happy to see you when you come home, and sometimes he likes to lay on your chest to give you hugs and kisses, until a toy catches his eye, then he's off to play again.
When playing with his people, King sometimes gets overly excited and forgets his manners. He’ll need some help learning that hands are not toys, and should go to a home with experienced cat guardians, and older cat-savvy children.
King is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV. He is $50 to adopt.
