Barracuda is one handsome guy with those big cheeks! When we went to an over-crowded animal control to rescue some cats, we fell in love with him the moment we laid eyes on him! Barracuda loves to say hello, purr and give head-butts. He also enjoys sitting in someone’s lap while they read or just relax. He’s never had someone to cuddle up to so now that he is meeting all kinds of people, he is enjoying every minute of it!
Barracuda is used to a life outside where he was the boss and could do anything he'd like. We love his free spirit, but he can occasionally be a little unpredictable when overstimulated. For this reason, we are recommending that he go to a home with adults only that know when to give him space. We are not yet sure how he will do with other cats and are doing a slower introduction to the shelter!
Barracuda is FIV+, but don’t let that scare you! FIV+ cats can live long and healthy lives. They can also live safely with FIV negative cats. FIV is spread through severe bite wounds, so it is important that your kitties get along. To learn more about FIV, please read the articles under the Advice tab.
