My story

Fetches, Loves his people, Cheerfully energetic

We don't want to brag (yes, we do), but Barney fetches! Yep, he is an expert shoestring fetcher - see the video! He also loves to play with his gray mousie. And watching birds and bugs outside makes him soooo very excited! He's a super fun guy with lots of happy energy.

And Barney can be described by any synonym of "energetic!" But he is always aware of his people and wants to make sure you know he loves you - he will often stop playing, come up to you, and give you an enthusiastic nose boop before going back to playing. He has quite the reputation for giving exuberant kisses! Because Barney doesn't do anything halfway.

We think Barney would do best with people who will often engage in playtime with him. He is very active and enjoys playing with others. Having lots of toys to play with would be great so he can keep himself entertained when everyone else is busy. He will let you know if he cannot find a toy or wants to play by letting out a couple of sweet meows!

In addition to his amazing personality, Barney has a stunning appearance. His coat is covered in so many stripes. So. Many. Stripes. We think Barney might be the stripiest tabby we have ever seen! He has perfect pinstripes on his body with wider stripes on his legs and feet. Plus, that black spot on his nose is gonna make your heart explode (in a good way)! HE'S SO CUTE.

Barney's ideal forever home would have lots of room for him to roam and explore, especially vertically! He loves to sit and perch, watching the world from above.

Barney is so perfect and fun and energetic and engaging! If you're looking for a kitten in a one(ish)-year-old cat's body, this is the guy for you! I He's SUCH a wonderful cat. Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet!

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.

For further information or to meet Barney, please email adopt@austinpetsalive.org.
