Hi, I’m Conan. I’m in rescue now, with my fun sister Jinxy, because our human got sick and couldn’t take care of us anymore. We feel lucky to be in a foster home where we can love and be loved for the time being, but we look forward to finding a permanent home with a new family.
As my sister says in her bio, there are a few things you need to know about our breed. One of them won’t surprise you at all. Because we have no hair to help us maintain our body heat, we seek out warmth; we love to bask in the sun or cuddle with you under a soft, fluffy blanket. What might be less obvious is that we require regular grooming, not brushing but a weekly bath to clear the oils from our skin and make sure our eyes and ears are clean. We also need regular manicures to clean under our cuticles and wipe and trim our nails.
Because we need to go home as a pair, I want to make sure to tell you that you’ll be getting cats with really different personalities. Jinxy’s the fun cat who likes to play. I’m the lover who wants to follow you around, sit on your shoulders, and show you how special you are to me. If you pet me, I’m likely to flop onto my back so you can stroke my warm, soft belly.
I love children and get along with respectful dogs (but I don’t want to live with any other cat, except of course my sister Jinxy). I’m good about using a scratching post, instead of your furniture, and I’m trained to use the litterbox.
I’ve been screened for HCM and have a healthy heart. I eat special wet food—not prescription food, but a high-protein, low-carb diet to keep my blood sugar in line. I used to take insulin, but it turns out that diet has my diabetes under control; still, it would be good for you to check my blood sugar once or twice a month.
One last thing. For your convenience, my foster mom put me on her Healthy Paws health insurance policy, which is transferable. She will give you details….Just in case you’re interested.
Now go read my sister Jinxy’s bio—she’s the 8-year-old Jinxy, not the 14-year-old who is also on the Purebreds Plus website— Contact: Elsie (530)320-7260, Jinxy’s foster in Dixon, CA. You can also fill out an adoption application and mention Jinxy & Conan.
