Bart was born around 4/23/16 and rescued in June with his family-- who've since been adopted. He's a big boy-- already topping the scales at 12 lbs and only 9 months old! Bart's two favorite things in the world are other cats and bird watching. Watch his movie here: https://youtu.be/zytajbfTw1w
He absolutely adores adult cats, is very submissive to them, chirps eagerly in greeting, and loves to snuggle with them and get them to groom him. One of my cats generally hates fosters in the house-- but she has accepted him and snuggles, grooms, and wrestles with him. Magically, Bart has gotten all four of my cats to accept him!
Bart's second favorite thing-- bird watching! He is an avid and rapt birder, watching the bird feeder intently through my bedroom window. And toys, of course! He is very energetic and athletic and has great fun zooming around the house and encouraging my cats to engage in a came of chase.
Bart is cautious, but curious with new people or quick unexpected movements because he was chased as a kitten by a young child in his first foster home. He's continued to make progress with me, running when I shake the treat-bag or pulling out his favorite toy, approaching my hand to sniff and then letting me pick him up where he purrs like crazy against my shoulder. He also has a BIG purr-- very loud, very rumbling. He likes to sleep between my feet or tucks into my side to sleep. And he loves to have his chin scratched.
Bart will need a patient adopter to allow him to settle in to a new home. He will do best in an adult household where the only chasing is by other cats wanting to play.
Meet him at my home in Walnut Creek by contacting Dana below.
