I was one of a litter of 5 boys, and I love them very much. However, I’m especially fond of one, Izzy. We’re polar opposites in almost every way: I’m a tabby and he’s a Russian blue mix, he’s soft and I’m silky, he’s built like a linebacker and I’m more like a petite ballet dancer, he fetches and I drag toys around, he likes cuddles and I prefer to quietly lay in laps. But for all our differences, we absolutely love each other and spend most of our days either playing or sleeping together.
Besides Izzy, there are five other things that I love in this world: cat tunnels, tall cat trees, food (of any kind), my fuzzy blanket and water. I can often be found shooting through tunnels, and scaling cat trees. I love to climb, so it’s very important that I have a nice cat tree in my forever home! Throughout the day, especially when I’m sleepy, I go to my favorite blanket and start to knead and nurse on it. I don’t know if I’ll do it forever, but for now, it makes me feel so comfortable and happy! Now, the water thing may seem an odd for a cat, but I love watching it run from faucets, or in the shower, or in the toilet. Unfortunately, our foster mom has started keeping the toilet lid down, because I definitely like to play in there!
I think that Izzy and I will make great companions in a household where cats are given free reign to explore and observe. I think that we'd prefer to be in a home without small children though. Izzy and I don't like a lot of sudden movements or to be picked up when we're not ready.
I am looking for a home that wants two cats: my brother, Izzy and me!
