*Atlas is best suited to an adult-only home or a home with teen-aged children who have previous experience with cats. He will need a quiet and calm environment with adopters who are willing to continue his socialization.

Atlas is a mature cat who can be very shy at first. He will take his time to come out from his hiding place. It may be a few weeks before he feels comfortable with his new family, but it’s worth the wait. Atlas is noble and gentle. He enjoys being pet, but he won’t demand it. He might lie in bed with you, his head on the pillow next to yours. If he finds an interesting toy, he’ll play for a bit; then he’ll take a nap by your feet. He’s easily startled by sudden movement or noise, so he would do best in a household of adults and older children.

The Avery Foundation is a foster-based rescue that helps stray cats and dogs in need in and around the Ottawa area. All our cats and dogs that are adopted out are spayed/neutered and have had their core vaccinations. Our adoption process involves an application; reference checks, interview and home visit prior to placement – this usually takes a few days to complete.
