Little Dude is going to be a BIG CAT when he grows up! He's about 7 months old now, born April 23, and is already 10 1/2 lbs! Watch his movie here: https://youtu.be/ZfFva1z5Pp4
Little Dude 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.
His second favorite thing is bird watching-- he is an avid and rapt birder, watching the bird feeder intently through my bedroom window.
And, of course, he loves toys and playing! He can easily amuse himself galloping around the house and tossing toy mice in the air for himself. He also gets my adult cats to play with him, sometimes in a game of chase around the house or wrestling in the living room.
Little Dude also has a BIG purr-- very loud, very rumbling. He likes to sleep between my feet and it's like getting a massage every night because he purrs so much. He is very quick to purr when I start stroking his sleek coat too. And he loves to have his chin scratched.
Little Dude does need some patience and understanding. He was rescued at 9 weeks old, but the rescue-family let their child chase him around a bedroom for the first 2 months-- that is the most impressionable age for a kitten so it's taken awhile to overcome. He can still be spooked with quick movements towards him-- so no chasing him unless you're a cat. And he can be a little darty on the floor, but he's also established numerous 'safe spots' in my house where he is totally relaxed and comfortable and I can just walk right over and scoop him up into my arms nd he purrs and rests his head on my shoulder and is happy to be carried around and petted.
Little Dude is curious with new people, but cautious. He will check out your guests when they settle for a visit, but will keep a safe distance. He will do best in an adult household, without active young children. He did sleep on the bed with my 10 year old niece, but darted off when my other niece sat up in the other twin bed.
Having rescued cats for many years there are two situations that I think Little Dude will do best in. My first choice is to a home where he is the only cat and you work from home or are retired and home a lot. He hates to be alone so this would cause him to bond very quickly with a new person. Second choice is to a home with a cat or dog who wants a buddy.
