Hansel is a darling brown tabby with the cutest, roundest and chubbiest face that can melt any heart. He was found outside of my office this summer and we were able to catch him when he was just a little fella. He was initially frightened and shy as he probably had limited contact with humans, but he warmed up quickly and instantly melted as soon as we petted him. He is now an extremely sweet, happy and friendly kitty with tons of personality. He is quite stocky and compact in size, but is just as cute as can be. He loves attention and petting and will even crawl onto your shoulders so that he can rub his face against yours. He lets me hold and carry him around like a baby and really seems to soak up the attention. He definitely likes to play but can be a bit mouthy at times and is still learning manners when it comes to not using his teeth during playtime (this is not uncommon with kittens, especially when teething). However, he is not aggressive at all and is getting much better with his mouthiness when properly addressed and redirected. He is a big fan of canned food and will go nuts when you break out a laser pointer or feather stick. Hansel really needs to be in a home with another playful kitty or two that can help him exert his energy and teach him manners and boundaries. A cat-friendly dog should be fine too as long as they are properly introduced. Considering his energy level, I would recommend a home with older or no kids. Hansel is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations and negative for FeLV/FIV - DOB 5/30/16, tag # 9938.
