Papa Watkins Riverdale

Domestic Short Hair | 9 Years 9 Months | Male

Sometimes the best things are worth the wait – and sweet Papa Watkins is a great example. Sick and scared when he first went to foster, this guy slowly and surely became healthier and started to blossom into a more confident companion. He now LOVES head pets and scritches and seeks out attention from his foster parents, no longer running and hiding when he’s scared..

Papa Watkins is a champion napper and eater and will never say no to a pet or treat. He loves to chase balls around the apartment and he’s developed an adorable tendency to drool when he’s super content. His newest way of asking for attention is to lay down at your feet, placing a paw or his head directly on your foot just to say he’s there. This sweetheart needs a home where his new family can spoil him with love and attention.

Papa Watkins had been living in a slightly managed outdoor colony for a couple of years, but was always too busy fighting or hanging with the lady cats to go into a trap, until one bitter cold night when he was scavenging through recycling and hungry enough to get rescued.

Papa Watkins is FIV+ and will live a normal, healthy life when provided with quality care such as a balanced diet and yearly wellness exams (like any cat). As FIV+ is not transmittable between neutered/spayed cats under normal circumstances, we are happy for FIV+ cats to mingle with FIV- cats in their adoptive homes.
