Otis is not purebred, but half Bengal. He has the pretty spotted coat, and a blaze, bib, and socks. He is 3 years old, and was part of a pair of cats. Eli was adopted, so now Otis is very lonely. That is why his adoption fee is only $20 so I can find him the perfect home instead of keeping him closed up in his room without anyone to see him during the day. I work a lot, have several old and special needs cats, and Otis needs more attention than I can give - it breaks my heart when I come home and hear him calling to be let out of his room to shower me with affection.
Otis weighs 20 lbs. and is moderately obese. Out of boredom, he has been eating too much - like a lot of us do! So with a house to roam and someone to play with him, he will lose about 2 lbs. and be a lean kitty. His coat is very short and slick, he doesn't shed very much, and he likes to be brushed gently with a soft bristle brush.
Like most Bengals, Otis loves water. He comes with his cat fountain which he will splash his paw in to play. You will never take another shower alone with Otis - he comes in when I shower with cool water and sits directly in the spray. When I work in my flowerbeds, I take Otis outside and he helps me water the flowers by playing in the stream from the hose. He only wants to go outside when you go, as he is unsure of anything unusual and will run inside or cry at the door. So his outside time is only with supervision.
Otis loves to play and isn't afraid of a vacuum. He helps me vacuum his cat tree and clean up his room. He will play with the nozzle when I am vacuuming and likes to be lightly vacuumed. Overall, he is always clean, has never sprayed, and uses his box without fail. He is affectionate, content to sit next to you on the couch, and adores catnip and his toys. He is quiet and such a handsome cat.
Bengals are possessive of their owner, bond tightly, and can have a temper. He will pretend to bite with love nibbles. He gets along with most animals, but small, submissive animals may not be able to handle his desire to play - and at 20 lbs, he's a big boy. He is fully vetted and comes with his cat tree, fountain, toys, and litter boxes. Application is required with positive vet references.
