Mr. Shiny is named for the way light reflects off his glossy black coat. He sports a few white hairs on his throat and a tiny white bikini. If you are very lucky, he will let you see it when you rub his belly. This friendly gentleman likes to play with dangling toys and trackballs but will occasionally capture your hand and lick it punitively. As he is very food motivated, he currently receives part of his food each day in a hunting feeder toy for exercise and enrichment. He’s an excellent birdwatching companion and an accomplished chair thief. Mr. Shiny enjoys head butting you in the face and trampling your lap until it’s soft enough to sit on. He’s very social and friendly with people and would love it if you would please stroke his forehead. He’s so fond of curling up next to people that he’s earned the nickname “Little Spoon”. However, he is pretty sure other cats need to bow to his majesty and would do best as an only cat or with a cat who doesn’t mind not being in charge.
Mr. Shiny started hanging around outside the home of the founder of AC&A in the spring of 2020 and eventually asked if he could come in. We are unsure how long he was outside, but he definitely started life inside and is very happy to be an indoor cat again.
