How APA! describes Trooper:

Trooper is an extremely sweet cat who makes the cutest sounds when you pet him. He is very friendly and playful, loves human companionship and gets along with other cats.

What APA! says about Trooper:

He has been with APA! since he was a neonatal kitten.

Trooper had some health issues as a kitten which he managed to overcome — hence the name. These issues have left him with a permanent, loving, kitten-like personality. 

He is very innocent, loves to watch his surroundings, look out the window, and watch other cats play. Considering how much Trooper loves his feline friends, APA! highly suggests that his forever home have a playmate, noting that he loves the companionship of other gentle cats or kittens.

Why APA! says Trooper deserves your love: 

He is a large cat now, and has no more health struggles, but Trooper maintains the innocence of a young kitten.
