Cali is a quiet, reserved cat. She entertains herself with all kinds of toys, and when she’s done, she prefers to be in your lap. If she notices you giving attention to other animals, or even if you just make eye contact, she will come over to see if you’ll pet her. She enjoys belly rubs and constant affection, but not being picked up. If you need space, she will lie next to you or find a spot in the sun. Cali is affectionate and loves attention. She would prefer to live with no dog or a dog that will not bother her. She is litter box trained and enjoys the company of her human and loves to have her belly rubbed and to play with toys. Cali does have a brother Rambo and they need to be adopted together. (For more information on Rambo please go to https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/32364547/)
Both Rambo and Cali have bright, intelligent eyes and understand when you’re pleased or upset. They are much like small children; they react to things emotionally and intelligently, and they constantly seek your approval.
Rambo and Cali's history...
Cali and Rambo’s story starts 5 years ago in Puyallup, Washington, where they were adopted from Puyallup Animal Rescue. The original adopter could not keep them and listed them on Craigslist, even though they signed an agreement to give them back to the rescue should they not be able to keep them. Not knowing this, they were adopted again by a couple living in Washington. After 2 years, the couple had to move back in with family in Mississippi, which forced them to look for a temporary home for the cats.
Understanding that this was supposed to be a temporary arrangement, a friend offered to take Cali and Rambo. The only place they could be kept was a spare bedroom, but it would only be for a few months. A few months turned into 1 ½ years when the couple could not reclaim them. This hurt Cali and Rambo deeply, and understandably so, as they had little company aside from each other during that time.
Now, Cali and Rambo share a one bedroom apartment with 2 other cats. They require lots of love, but also attention, time, devotion, and space. With adequate space, they will get along with other cats. They have never dealt with dogs before and therefore dislike them, but a dog with a mellow personality who won’t chase after them should be fine. They have never been around children, but any child who knows how to behave around animals (no tail pulling, screaming, etc.) should be fine also.
