Barnabas

Domestic Short Hair | 8 Years 2 Months | Male

Barnabas is a very friendly cat that loves to headbutt, weave between your legs, and follow you along from room to room. 

He’s a big fan of looking out the window and brings a calm presence to any room. He is comfortable being held and you can find him lounging around different couches and pillows throughout the day. 

He is fairly indifferent to toys and can’t be bothered to run for any thrown toys, yet he will smell anything in front of him.

His favorite snack is Churo tuna, and he is very food motivated! He loves a good head rub and tends to like anyone who can offer a good scratch, however, there are times where he decides he’s had enough and can gently bite without marks as a warning. You can learn to expect this if he isn’t leaning into the scratch as you pet him.

Otherwise, he rarely meows and never scratches, making him the perfect companion for a quiet evening at home. He is also strangely great with watching tv side by side with us. He would be a great fit for a down to earth owner ready to give lots of pets and food!

Barnabas has been diagnosed with a heart murmur and would benefit from an echocardiogram -- we would appreciate it if their potential adopter could help us cover this cost in lieu of an adoption donation

This cat would prefer to be adopted alone and be the only cat in the home.
