Free LionKing "Simba" look alike CAT

Simba needs forever home where he can shine!
Simba is young (4ish) tan kitty cat with eyes as golden beige as he is. Whenever out he gets so many oohs & aahhs. His color combo must be pretty unique. We took him from someone who had kittens & he's never found peace in our home. We had 3 cats prior, all only 1-3 yrs themselves but didn't welcome him in for some reason. He is SUPER affectionate, & over time we realize maybe the cats don't appreciate the group hugger he is. The 2 litter mates we had sometimes groom each other, but his playful advances seem to royally annoy the other cats. He is really cool, it's a shame. We've worked on it for the past 4 yrs non-stop. TRUST me, this is not out of laziness or neglect. The only thing I didn't splurge on is a private cat behaviorist to come over because it's $$$. The dynamic is so crazy & after calming collars, renovating spaces & adding multiple perch/play things & litters nothing's made an improvement. If they aren't avoiding him & acting more depressed than they were before he came along, they hiss & fight. The best solution is for him to find a home he can get treated like the "Prince of the Pride" he is. He's actually not one of those crazy type cats- he CAN be super chill a lot of the day as well. The Vet did some physical tests to see if he behaved like a cat that wasn't social, & she said he's not that at all. He didn't mind her pushing any of his buttons. I was trying to re-home him somewhere with zero cats, but as of today, she feels it's probably just our home. He's adaptable among the different personalities in our home- a teenage boy, college student, 3 working adults some lazy, some hyper active. He can be playful or chill. He enjoys a good fetch as much as rolling on his back for a belly rub. He's like part Golden Retriever- he fetches- not your normal "cat-chase-prey" type of fun...he darts across the room for a hair band & brings it back like 'is that all you got?'. But he hasn't acted anxious the whole couple months he's been shut in my room to avoid any more tension- so he's calm, too. He'd be as good for a single slower paced adult, or young family with kids. When our younger family is over he's the only one who comes out to play & likes the rough play! He's never sprayed or had any litter issues. He's not a picky eater, but not over weight. Shots up to date, neutered, of course, healthy all around. If it were just me in the home- I'd keep him & try longer, but I share my home & have been outvoted on spending any more time or nights in Animal ER due to some injury from a cat fight. My cat that stays in my room & has been with me since before we moved in has disowned me since he's been kicked out of what I'm sure he considers his bedroom where I used to keep him at night & when I get ready for work in mornings- which breaks my heart as equally. Simba is really a simple special guy- I think it just turns out our prior cats are more difficult than we thought! The fact he hasn't shied away & keeps trying to rub up near them even though they won't have him proves he's either the biggest mush or the dumbest cat!
