Rescue Story:

I was found outside but unfortunately no one ever claimed me so Zoe's agreed to help find me a great forever home. Which turned out to be a blessing due to my health issues I wouldn't have survived out there!

Date of Birth: February 2020

Energy Level: Low - Medium

Size (adult): Medium

Good with Dogs? No

Good with Cats? Unknown
Depends...if introductions are done slowly and calmly it's generally okay. They must be very cat friendly though as stress isn't good for me.
Good with Kids? No
I need a calm home with no extra stimulation.

Critter Twitter:

I am a sweet boy, who loves to be petted and can purr with the best of them. I've never growled or hissed, not even at other cats. I am big cat, with a gentle disposition, really a gentle giant. I like my head scratched and petted, and don't mind being fully petted when I'm in the mood. Purring is usually a good sign that I'm 'in the mood'! I will come up on your lap and curl up and sleep, but that has to be on my terms. I will also sleep with you, and don't mind being picked up once we get to know each other. I definitely respond to affection. In short, I'm a typical cat.

About my Behaviour:

I have met other cats with my current foster, and it's been okay. In fact, while they tend to hiss at me none have been aggressive and I'm the calm one! I could eat all day if you let me, but if I have four cans of Fancy Feast each day I'm usually good with that. I'll help you wake up in the morning if I sense you are waking up. I love to play and can make a toy out of just about anything. I like catnip enough that if it's offered I'll jump at the chance to have some. I have a most endearing meow when I see my foster coming or am being petted.

I can tend to be a bit firm when I nibble, but I always lick you afterward. If I use my nails on you, just say 'nice' and I usually relax a bit, but I'm really just playing.

How’s my Health?

I am fully vetted. I do have an enlarged heart with a grade 5/6 heart murmur. I might have a heart condition, but I am a normal cat. I don't take any medications and all my bodily functions are normal. I will tear around the house, occasionally play hide and attack, but I don't really hurt you...I'm just playing! I don't really drink a lot of water, so some hot water with my food is a great way to help with that. And when I'm asleep, I'm really asleep! Due to my being special needs my adoption fee is only $25. Gabapentin might be required just to calm any anxiety.
