Meet Augustus! Augustus is the perfect cat's cat. He can be very shy around people and feels more comfortable around other cats than he does around humans. He absolutely adores his foster family's three-year-old and four-year-old cats as well as his two siblings, Charlie and Veruca.
Augustus is very playful and energetic. He loves to play with coil toys, bottle caps, wand toys, stuffed mice and ribbon toys. He also loves to eat—food and treats are the way to his heart!
Augustus has made a lot of progress since he first came into our foster program, and his foster mom has worked every day to build his trust. Augustus does not run away when you approach him anymore and will even come by you at feeding time, and allows an occasional pet or two! Overall, he just likes to hang out in the same room as you, observe what's going on around him and play all day with his cat buddies! Our Adoption Team would love to speak to potential adopters about how to help Augustus adjust to a new home.
Augustus would do best with a calm and patient adopter who understands that he will most likely never be a lap cat—and that’s okay! Instead, Augustus would be an ideal match for someone looking to adopt a feline friend for their current cat or kitten. Augustus may not want to be your best friend, but he will provide hours of entertainment and snuggles for your resident cat!
