T.J is a shy, sweet boy who looks just like a miniature black panther. Born last September, he and his siblings were cared for by an older gentleman. He loves his birdie-on-a-wand toy and his mouse, but the birdie is his absolute favorite. Cat-nip is always welcome, of course. He enjoys treats, but sometimes he prefers that they are offered in front of him instead of being fed to him—he’s a grown teenager, after-all! T.J is respectful of other cats and would be a good fur-brother to other cats (his siblings are also up for adoption *wink*wink*hint*). T.J wants to be more bold, but sometimes he still can’t help being shy, and he takes a little time to warm up to new people and experiences. He was around a small dog when he was very young, but he hasn’t been around one since, and doesn’t really remember if he likes them or not. He would like you to know that he has good manners, and likes gentle scratches on the back of his neck and chin.
