Magoo is a very smart cat. Magoo is also a very confident cat. I assume you understand that this means that Magoo is a very entertaining “handful”. He seems to think that the world is his. As you and everyone around are also his. He evidently knows how to use the toilet though with us he uses his litterbox perfectly. He has been known to happily ride in cars without a carrier. He is full of surprises. He is a clown, a lover, an explorer, a warrior, a solver of problems, and a ham.
Sphynx lovers know that these cats have a very large presence. This is not a sleep-on-the-couch Persian fluffball. Magoo is quite determined to have his life as he thinks it should be. It is important that his human slaves agree with him. And what fun he is!! I tell folks that having a Bengal is “a lifestyle choice” meaning you must be willing to change your home and your life to accommodate your Bengal’s needs. The same is true here. Your reward will be an entertaining, loving, very best friend.
It is pretty well known that Sphynxes need baths and some fussy little grooming chores. This is because their body oil accumulates on their skin and is not dispersed out along their hair shafts. They are a fairly high-maintenance breed of cat. Of course, Sphynx owners enjoy fussing with their kitty’s wonderful, odd bodies ( and feet). They must be kept warm and often are dressed in sweaters. Magoo says “Want to see how easily I can get my sweaters off if I feel like it?”. He likes his striped T-shirt so you will see it in many pictures.
It is hard to believe this boy was found outside in this rainy cold February 2023! We will never know what story brought him to the shelter. He was dirty and showed a lack of care for his appearance. Magoo was poked and prodded and tested and had a blood panel at the vet. He is a healthy boy. Some of his paper work says he has a 2-3 heart murmur. Other paperwork says he has no heart murmur. We believe that he probably does have a heart murmur.
He occasionally takes active offense at some poor male cat so his new family should not have a male kitty. He has been fine around females, just not interested in them. He has other things to do. He wants, wants, wants, and loves humans. We don’t know how he is with dogs but he would doubtless be in charge. I think he would be fine with kids as long as they are not too young. He would be perfect for a Sphynx-experienced family that chose him as their child. He is a lot of cat. Some family will be so very lucky!
Magoo is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.
If you believe you are the perfect adopter for Magoo please tell us why in the comments section of our Adoption Application, and contact Harriet at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are unable to reach Harriet please email us at email@example.com.
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!
