Atlas is a rescue from JJ & Maggie’s Cat Rescue in Floresville and the newest member of the Estrada family. He is playful and adventurous, yet shy and loving. He enjoys playing with his toys and waiting for his family to get home to cuddle. Although he is up at all hours of the night playing, he does find time to catch up on sleep when his humans are wide awake.
