Caramel is a BIG 16 pound boy that was born in October 2007. His owner had adopted a cat from our center in the past and returned her along with Caramel due to having medical issues of her own and no longer being able to care for the cats. Caramel was very unhappy and stressed at losing his home. For several days we couldn't even get near him because he would lash out in fear. Over time, he learned that he could trust us and soon asked us for attention. He would rub on our hands and purr at first, but still remained cautious for several weeks. Now that he is settled into one of our colony cat rooms, he has shown that he can be a very sweet and loving cat.
Caramel has such a regal look about him like he is the 'king' of the room. He perches up high when he wants to observe the room, or will take cover in a kitty cube when he wants to be left alone. He gets really excited for canned cat food and is the first to run to the plates when it's feeding time. He also likes cat treats and has already mastered our puzzle cat feeders that make it a challenge to get the treat. He needs a home where someone will be patient and give him the time he needs to adjust to a new environment. He likes attention and is often social but also likes his alone time. He will let you know when he wants to be left alone, so we recommend that he go to a home with older children who will respect his boundaries.
Caramel does well around the other cat and lived in his previous home with female cats. He even has a frisky side and will play occasionally with toy wands, but it mostly mellow and content to lounge.
