Casey is a friendly fluffy boy who just wants his voice to be heard. He loves talking to people and making little 'brrrt' noises. He is such an amazing conversationalist that he even won over the Uber driver who wasn't so keen on having him in the car - they ended up chatting most of the ride!
Casey isn’t a shy boy, but can take a little bit of time to warm up to people who aren’t too comfortable around cats. He soon gets comfortable and just wants to be friends with them.
Casey loves attention and snuggles, and will let you know when you can stop patting him. Head massages are his favourite. Belly rubs are also appreciated but belly pats/scratches and picking him up are not so welcome. However, he is a very tolerant cat and gives ample warning if he’s not enjoying whatever is happening.
Although he loves being fawned over, he also entertains himself very well by chasing any toys left out, or just napping. His favourite toys are strings. String on a stick, shoe laces, feathers on strings... anything that dangles,such an easy boy to entertain!.
Casey naps while no one is home, and wakes up as soon as he hears the keys jingle outside. That is when you get to hear his sleepy voice which is the sweetest croaky meow welcoming you home (or asking for a treat).
When he naps next to people, he usually likes to be close to them sometimes using his paw or foot to seek the person out and to hold on to them. He’s also been known to give out hugs when feeling particularly generous!
Casey was transferred over from Quebec where he was in an overcrowded shelter.
Casey came to his foster home a slightly stinky, gross and drool-y boy, but now is the beautiful soft fluffy boy he was always meant to be. He has a very big personality which makes him so lovable, and has won over everyone who has met him – even people wary of cats!
P.S. Casey as politely requested that I tell you that he is a big brave boy who isn’t particularly afraid of anything. However, he is VERY suspicious of The Vacuum and for the sake of the Humans has taken on the task of surveying its movements from the bed.
Casey has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). FIV+ cats can live long happy lives with a good diet, low stress, indoor homes, loving families, and annual vet check-ins. He does not require medication. He can live in a home with other non-FIV+ cats, as the virus is only passed to other cats by blood (ie. deep bite marks). Please do not judge him based on a blood test!
