Nozomi is a delightful, youthful, and energetic 9-year-old American Shorthair. He has a charming and spunky personality and would make a wonderful companion for a person or couple without children or other pets. Nozomi is very affectionate with people and loves to cuddle (but on his own terms!). He is a "window" cat and can spend hours on end watching passers-by and traffic. He's a vocal feline who loves to chase laser pointers and guitar strings. Nozomi is neutered and 100% litter trained with no spraying or accidents in the nine years we have owned him.
We have found ourselves in the position of needing to rehome Nozomi due to several incidents involving our one-year-old daughter. While we never would have previously considered our pet to be unfriendly towards people, we do feel that he should go to a home without small children. Additionally, Nozomi hasn't ever gotten along with our other cat, Lucy, and he really needs to be his new owner's only pet for now.
Nozomi is such a delightful and unique cat and we are heartbroken to rehome him. We can't wait to tell you more about our wonderful and beloved friend!
