I really, really want to be a loving companion in a quiet home with at least one other friendly cat. I love squeezy tube treats, and will climb into my foster mom's lap to lick them off her fingers. She gives me give me lots of scritches and I rub her legs and purr and sit near her on the sofa making happy chirpy noises. I'll flop for belly rubs, and enjoy smooshy chin and cheek rubs, too. There's even video of her giving me many smooches on my head!
Now I have to admit that I'm not going to walk out of my carrier and give you a cuddle right away. See, I've had some bad experiences in the past, so I need time to learn to trust you and get brave. But don't worry - I'm not even a teensy bit aggressive! Nope, I'm extremely gentle! I just need someone who'll let me take the time I need to be the affectionate boy I want to be - that I really, really can be! Someone who'll let me chill out and maybe even hide for a while, then give me lots of treats to boost my confidence, and not be mad if I keep my distance while I figure things out!
My foster mom tells me I'm super-handsome, and that I have a very cute little voice. I don't talk a lot, but it's nice to know that when I do, it'll bring a smile to your face!
Other than needing time and bribes - er, treats - and maybe a feather wand or two, I'm a pretty simple guy. I love looking out windows, especially if there are squirrels or birds or even people going by on the sidewalk. I enjoy chilling in a cat tree. You can leave a nice big bowl of kibble out for me and I'll nibble through the day without having to bother you. And if you feel like giving me some yummy wet food, I'll appreciate it, too! I'm also very good at sharing with my cat friends, and won't bully them or be mean. Even though I'm a pretty big boy, I'm gentle and deferential... with a playful streak!
Look, I know everyone loves the cat that wants to be your best friend right away. And yeah, that is pretty awesome. You'll have to work harder and wait longer for my love, but I absolutely promise you that'll just make it an even bigger reward. And of course, I'll look amazing on your Instagram feed right away!
