Adoption Fee: $300
Charlie is a very interesting cat. In some photo’s you can see he looks looks like a goofy comedian. In others like the one of him creeping down the rope ramp he looks like a tiger in the jungle. Charlie is a goofy friendly cat who has been bred to look like a jungle cat. He is very affectionate and loves all manner of attention. He will roll on his back so you can admire his spotted tummy. He is a mild boy, a beta cat, but not one to completely ignore. He will hiss to show his opinions but never bite or scratch.
Charlie has been through a hard time. He was left, or lost, outside behind a fast food restaurant in San Jose. ( Some cat owners deliberately choose fast food restaurants as places to abandon their kitties thinking the dumpsters and outside trash will provide food). A cat lover/ rescuer brought him to us. His coat was a little shaggy to keep him warm and he certainly needed a bath. Though he was quite stressed out he was not thin. Ocicats are cats that have been genetically bred to be spotted and look like miniature wild cats. Unlike Bengals and Savannahs they have no genetic connection to wild cats. They are entirely domestic cats though looking at them it is hard to believe that.
Charlie has settled in with us and now shows us what a funny, happy guy he is. He is an easy going cat that loves to play and be brushed and eat and watch birds. He came from outside and it is hard to know if he will be interested in getting out a door or quite the opposite. We have fostered many abandoned cats that actively want NOT to go outside.There is no way to tell in advance what he would want.
Charlie is a healthy, microchipped, neutered boy about 3 -4 yrs old. He has been combo tested and was negative for Feline Leukemia and positive for Feline Immunological Virus. ( FIV+) Unlike the thinking a decade ago, FIV+ is no longer seen as a major health worry. It slowly affects the immune system messaging ability but the modern research shows FIV+ cats on average live as long as non FIV cats. Problems with issues like kidney and heart troubles, or FeLV, are much more important. Most of my adopters of FIV+ cats choose to mix them in with their other cats. These cats need what other cats need: good food, appropriate vet care, a loving stable inside only home.
I don’t know how Charlie is with dogs. He is probably fine with non aggressive, friendly cats. Some lucky family will have so much fun with him.
Charlie is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
