Gorgeous Whippet came to us with his two siblings when he was 4 months old, he was feral and he had very poor social skills. After a lot of socialization work in his current foster home, he's shown great improvements. He still need socialization and an environment with a very social cat who love human companionship will help him get even more trustful towards humans. Although he's sometimes shy and shows his fear by hissing and trying to scratch (if you push his limits), lately when he's resting, he enjoys the occasional forehead and tail petting. A household with an outgoing cat who can show him it's OK to trust humans, and a human companion who will be patient with him is preferred. He's currently not a lap cat, but in the right environment, with the right patient and loving person, he could easily be. He's still scared of many things including children (and the noise they make!) , so the socialization may be slower in their presence. He hisses and may still show aggressive behavior such as trying to scratch when he's scared. Someone who has experience, understands cats and has a lot of patience will be best.
He's a cat with the attitude of a lion king. He has a great personality, and once you lock eyes with him, he bewitches you. He's curious, playful and enjoys life. Once he trusts humans fully, he will be a very outgoing cat. He's addicted to Temptations treats which he will eat right off your hand and LOVES the presence of other cats. He trills at them all the time, enjoys playing and grooming other them. He's a playful cat, any toy with string and laser pointer will get him going. He loves to climb on the cat tree or anywhere high where he can observe the situation.
Only the right home will be considered. Everyday Whippet demonstrates progress and he has bonded with our 8 month old social kitten. He's got a larger than life personality and we grew very fond and are proud of him. He will stay will us and continue his socialization journey until we find him the perfect home! Is Whippet the newest addition to your loving and patient family?
