Atlas embodies his heroic name better than we thought a cat could. He’s independent, adventurous, and undeniably, ruggedly handsome. (Weird to say, but you’ll understand when you see him.) Less than a year old, he plays with abandon, sleeps like a champ, and loves to explore.
Because he’s used to going his own way, he can be slow to trust strangers before they’ve proven themselves. But, like a lot of strong, silent types, we found that Atlas is a big softy once you get to know him. Building up trust with Atlas just means being there for him, putting in time with his favorite wand toys, and rubbing his fluffy neck and ears when he’s ready.
Atlas is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, negative for FeLV/FIV, and $50 to adopt.
Cat Town is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, formed by long term volunteers from Oakland Animal Services (OAS) and other Bay Area shelters. We have partnered with OAS to take the cats who are least likely to do well in a shelter setting.
