This week, Austin Pets Alive! would like you to meet Junior, a handsome Russian blue who is very proud of his heritage. But even if you don't own the complete works of Dostoyevsky,  you should still consider taking this pretty kitty home with you.

How APA! describes Junior: 

Independent and good looking with long gray hair and bright green eyes.

What APA! says about Junior:

Junior's previous owners abandoned him when they moved, causing him to become wary of people. But after spending some time in foster care, Junior is more relaxed and trusting of humans — especially if they have treats.

He gets along well with other cats and, unlike Vladimir Putin, he often avoids confrontation by running away. 

Junior isn't a very needy cat, but he still loves to weave in and out between your legs to get a good head rub.

Why APA! says he deserves your love:

While he didn't trust people at first, Junior has adapted well at APA! and is ready to join his new forever family.
