Biography

We got Atticus to add to our family with another kitten because we couldn't say no to just one and it turns out the Atticus has some neurological problems. He's a very fun and lovable cat and it makes him very unique. He's almost like a combination of a dog and a cat he's very floppy he's very lovable and he loves being held. That being said he doesn't track hand movement very well so he always seems surprised when you try to pick him up but the plus side is that he's delighted to be held and you could almost fold him into a little pretzel because he's just very malleable which is why I included this picture of him sleeping almost in half in a very awkward way. Atticus can entertain himself but he would not do well without other cats to play with he's a bubble of energy and he is constantly confused so you have to be patient with him if you can deal with that though he is an amazing cat. You might be asking why would I want to get rid of this amazing cat? It's hard for me because I love him a lot even though we've only had him for a few weeks because he is a kitten we travel a lot and we had a scare where he got stuck in the automatic cat box so I had to race home from Portland. Luckily I was only that far away but if I was across the country I don't know what would have happened. Atticus is such an amazing and unique guy that he deserves a forever home that will really honor and treasure him. He's the kind of cat that thinks outside of the box like a dog so you have to have a good mindset if you want to adopt him he would probably do well if you have open spaces and you want an indoor outdoor cat although we have kept him indoors the entire time we've owned him since a kitten so you can choose. He loves edible grass and in general is constantly trying to chew on things except he's been very good about never chewing on cords a lot of the fake plants in my house are decimated though LOL. I've kept a pretty good watch on him from not climbing on counters and he is trained to use the cat box and he eats out of the automatic cat feeder so he has been well taken care of. I'd really like to see him go to a house and not an apartment although I'm not going to be terribly picky for the right owner. If you're willing to meet Atticus I can guarantee you're going to fall in love with him because he is the most unique cat I've ever met and I am really sad to have to let him go but he's just a kitten and I know I can't give him his best life and it's really unfair of me to not put his profile out there and see if I can find him a better forever home.
