About Midori

Adoption Fee

Midori, the green-eyed kitty of mystery. She is such a striking cat that neighbors in a multi-million dollar community took notice when she came soliciting food and attention. One neighbor took her to a vet to check for a chip, none was found. Others posted her on their neighborhood network, trying to find her family. For at least a 5-month period, she would appear then disappear, always she was very friendly and loving to those helping her. Concern for her well-being grew, as there were increasing sightings of mountain lions nearby. She was not seen for 2 months, they thought she was gone.  When she turned up again, they worked even harder to get her into safety. A member of this community had adopted from Purebreds Plus, and she contacted us to see if we could help her. When she sent the adorable photos (below) of her rolling around on the ground showing her spotted tummy, how could we not say yes.

She was very well-behaved when we took her to the vet. He found that she was 5 years old, spayed, in excellent health, and her combo test was neg/neg. Though she was always friendly with us, we soon learned that she did not like other cats. We also determined that she was very food motivated. She would eat anything we put in front of her. When you see a cat who has been living outside and does not like other cats, it is a safe guess that they were competing for the same source of food.


Maybe her “buns of steel”  Bengal heritage helped her survive. We have sent Midori’s photos to our Bengal breed expert and she has given us interesting information. Midori is clearly at least part Bengal, due to her spotted markings, head shape, and other Bengal characteristics. Most people think of Bengals as having rosettes and spots. A lesser-known pattern is the Marble coat with bullseyes and other geometric shapes. Midori is a Marble Bengal with spots all over her tummy.  Especially unusual is the length of her fur.  Bengals are usually short-haired, which she is not.  She is a fuzzy Bengal. There is a rare fuzzy Bengal coat type called a Cashmere Bengal. Given the wealth of the neighborhood where she was found this may be what she is, or she may be a Bengal mix. The  Bengal heritage in her is obvious but that’s all we can say without doing a DNA test.

Midori needs a home that will give her a lot of space for entertainment and exercise. Catios are wonderful for Bengals. Living with Bengals is a lifestyle choice, and Bengal lovers know that they have to accommodate their kitty’s needs. They must embrace the challenge of outthinking their super-smart kitty. Bengals are not a good choice for families with children whose friends may leave doors open. We don’t know how Midori is with dogs, but she has to be the only kitty in the home.  Whoever adopts her will have a beautiful, intelligent, athletic kitty to be their loyal companion.

Midori is currently fostered in Santa Cruz.
