Intriguing, Curious, Handsome Marty has a striking coat full of bold tabby spots and swirls scattered in random beauty over his snowy white fur. His personality is equally special...a mixture of curiosity, aloofness and acceptance of love on his own terms. No doubt, a quintessential cat! Marty was rescued by APA!, along with his brother, Hank, from a hoarding situation. The two are very attached to each other, and love cuddling and playing together with their favorite catnip mouse! Marty gains such confidence when he is with Hank and will allow you to pet him and pick him up only when they're together. He also becomes more playful and interested in people if Hank is by his side. Marty is definitely a people watcher...look up from your chores and you'll often find him coyly observing you with fascination. He's an explorer too and enjoys walking about and checking out his world. It would be best if Marty was not in a home with small children or with someone looking for the snuggly type. He's too cool for cuddles! We're not sure how Marty would do around dogs. We can say he didn't react to his foster's dogs that he saw through a fence. In addition to adoring his cherished brother, Marty gets along well with other cats. Marty would be the perfect fit for a cat savvy person and, ideally, sweet Hank could be adopted along with him. If you respect and appreciate the quirky characteristics that make cats so uniquely awesome and are ready to open up your heart to a kitty (or two) who may never have experienced the security and comfort of a loving home, contact us to meet Marty today! 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.
