Zapparocky was discovered by a maintenance worker at a school I worked at. I had literally just lost one of my cats a week prior, but was not looking to add a new one to the family. The timing was so perfect though, so before I knew it the little angel was in my car heading home.
This is the 4th cat I've owned and he is one odd duck. It's been over a year but he still runs around all day like a little kitten and can be a little destructive. He loves to hide and be alone. He rarely engages in play or affection, but when he does it is so unbelievably sweet. He lays on your shoulder and nuzzles your neck. I guess he thinks he is a pirate because he regularly will jump on our shoulders (including my boyfriend who is 6'4") which makes for some hilarious pictures, but he's hard to get off. He loves the bathroom and water which is so weird, I've never had a cat love water, but he will actually jump into a bath or shower if I'm in there too long. He needs to know you are there, but once he does, he doesn't pay much attention to you lol.
He's a "nom-er" as we like to call him, not a bitter at all, but he likes to nom on fingers. It doesn't hurt so we let him. He gets along with our other cats well. Overall a wonderful, amusing experience!
