Hello friends! My name is Bartok! I am an extremely affectionate, talkative, loving boy who was lucky enough to be rescued off the streets. The ARL staff have been amazed at how affectionate I am and how much I love to be petted and brushed, and am even good at being picked up. I am also a great cuddler and love to be close to you and be a lap cat. People say my coloring makes me look like a super-hero with a secret identity. I have a black mask covering my eyes and nose like Batman! If you''re looking for someone to keep you company and make you feel loved and appreciated, I''m your man. In my stay in a foster home, there were two large dogs and I was scared and hissed at them, but by the end of the week I was able to be near them, so the right owner with a dog could probably get me over the hump of being nervous with some patience (it won''t be right away). All I ask is a warm bed, a big window, and your company, and of course a 'forever home' where I know I''ll always be safe (100% indoors) and always loved.
