- Owner Placement
Adopted by Lia & Dan
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is helping facilitate the adoption of this cat through our Owner Placement Program. We take no responsibility for the health and medical records of this cat. It is the responsibility of the owner and adopter to discuss this.
Harley is NOT in a Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue foster home, but residing with his current owner in Campbell. Adoption fee applies. Find out more about Owner Placement Cats.
Harley is a handsome 6 year old mellow Spotted Bengal/Lynx Siamese mix that has experienced escalating changes in his life. He was adopted as a kitten from a local shelter and started his young life in a quiet household. He had lots of attention and loved snuggling in bed with his people.
Fast track forward to today, Harley now finds himself in a busy dynamic household with 3 active young children, 3 additional cats and outdoor free roaming neighborhood cats scent marking their yard. Harley and the 3 other cats are indoor only, and the neighbor’s intact male cat is marking outside on their sliding glass door. This began in the spring of 2022 and has caused undue stress and behavioral changes for Harley. 3 of the 4 indoor cats began “answering” those messages inside the sliding glass door. Harley, being one of the three, also began being uneasy toward the others and a bit skittish. His owners have been very diligent in working through this problematic situation. They have done everything recommended – although there has not been an effective way to deter free roaming intact neighborhood cats from marking the perimeter of their property. They’ve separated their indoor cats and Harley has returned to using a litter box since he has been kept isolated by himself away from the other cats. Unfortunately for Harley, he is currently kept in the garage and an enclosed patio. Even though he has a nice set up, this is certainly not an ideal or long term solution for such an affectionate interactive kitty.
His owners have regretfully decided it would be in Harley’s best interest to once again have the luxury of being an only cat in a quiet home with no other pets, and no free roaming outdoor cats nearby. He should do well with older respectful children, as he does love playing with the 6 year old who spends fun time with him every day with gentleness and love.
Harley would really thrive being the center of attention with his people, enjoying snuggle time in a home with plenty of room and a window or two where he can watch “Birds and Squirrel TV.” He is healthy, on no medications, eats Friskies wet food pate and, as stated, has returned to regularly using his litter box. His owners are to be commended for achieving this desired result. As much as they will miss him, they know this is best for Harley who is now ready for his new home.
Harley is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet food, and is litterbox perfect.
He currently lives with his owner in Campbell.
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.

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!
