Midori, the green eyed kitty of mystery. She is such a striking cat that neighbors in a multi million dollar community noticed her 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. Finally a member of this community who had adopted from Purebreds Plus sent us adorable photos of her rolling around showing off her spotted tummy. How could we not say yes.
She was very well behaved at the vet. He found that she was 5 years old, spayed, and in great health. Right from the start she was very friendly and good natured with us but 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.
We sent Midori’s photos to our Bengal expert and she said Midori is at least part Bengal, due to her spotted markings, head shape and other Bengal traits. While people think of Bengals as having rosettes, a lesser known pattern is the “Marbled” coat with bullseyes on the flank. Midori is a Marble Bengal with spots all over her tummy. Bengals are usually short haired, which Midori is not. There is a rare longer coated Bengal 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. Her Bengal heritage is obvious in her look and behavior but that’s all we can say .
Midori is happy being inside. She is an amazing athlete and needs a home that will give her a lot of entertainment and exercise. A small apartment with humans gone all day is not suitable for her energy and activity level. She needs space and climbing trees and room for play. Of course a catio with tree branches is great for any Bengal. Bengal lovers know that they have to change their lifestyle to accommodate their kitty’s needs for exercise, affection,and fun. When Midori gets all revved up with the joy of movement, jumping for feathers, chasing strings, her new family needs to know to be careful of her over excitement and not substitute their hands for her toys and “prey” objects. She is not a good choice for a family with young children. We don’t know how she would be with dogs other than “in charge”.
Some family will be so lucky to have her company.
Midori is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
She 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!
