I am every bit the gentleman that my "Sir" title implies.
I am a kind, sweet cuddlebug. I have a big purr and an adorable tiny meow. I love to snuggle and to make biscuits - that's what my foster mom calls my kneading!
I have limited vision in my right eye, but it doesn’t bother me at all. I think my wizard eye, as my foster mom calls it, adds to my distinguished look! It doesn’t seem to affect my depth perception. I am very active - I zoom around when I feel like it, and I can jump up and down to the couch or bed with no problem. My foster mom has a flight of stairs at her place, and I can navigate those without any issue.
I am diabetic, meaning that I need to eat low-carb food. (Don't worry, it’s not hard to find, and it's not more expensive than other cat food. My foster mom can provide a list of my favorite foods, including fancy feast pâté wet food, and fancy feast purée treats!) I am very easygoing about the twice-daily insulin shots - no big deal!
I am very calm about having my claws trimmed, as a gentlecat should be! I enjoy using scratching posts to keep my claws neat.
I am FIV positive, but please don’t hold it against me! FIV is not a life threatening condition, and it can only be spread to other cats through deep bites, which are exceedingly rare in neutered indoor cats. It requires no meds or special treatment, and FIV+ cats can have the same lifespan as cats without FIV. Cats with FIV and without FIV can reside together safely. You can read more about FIV here, or by looking it up online.
I enjoy being petted and brushed. I'm ready for a forever home that has lots of cozy blankets for me to burrow into, soft surfaces for me to nap on, and lots of affection. I like to be near my favorite person, sometimes on their lap, making biscuits! I enjoy playing with string toys sometimes, and have been known to partake in a little catnip on occasion.
I have good litter habits (using an uncovered litter box.)
I can accept the presence of other cats, and I prefer not to take a dominant role. I’m also happy to be a solo cat. I’m easygoing like that!
Although I’ve definitely had some challenging times in the past, resulting in my somewhat weathered/grizzled appearance, I am every bit the gentlecat. I’m loving my life now and looking forward to enjoying life moving forward! My foster mom says I’m the sweetest cat she’s ever fostered - probably because I like to sleep cuddled right in her arms!
My biscuit-making is so great that my foster mom commissioned an artwork of me based on her favorite picture - me in a hat - to make a logo for my world-famous biscuit business. You can see the art if you scroll through the pictures of me here. (All credit to the artist: https://instagram.com/_kai_designs_/)
I am loving and sweet. If you're looking for a calm, cuddly companion, come say hello!
