He would be better as an indoor cat because he is not a fighter to last in the outdoors. He needs a loving quieter home. He has been good around children but skittish with too much commotion. He has been seen by a vet and very fit - except for right now recovering from this lastest attack.

Raja

The story of how Raja and I came to be is pretty funny. I went to buy a TV from someone on OfferUp, and when I opened the door I almost ran over a little kitten. The owner told me "she" (who later turned out to be a "he") was given to her by her mom and she wasn't sure where Raja was from. I jokingly said "how much for the cat" because he was so cute but I was not thinking about adopting a cat at the time. She went on to tell me she was actually moving and wouldn't be able to take Raja with her and that she had not been able to find a home for him. So, being the animal lover I am, I couldn't say no. I ended up leaving with a TV and a kitten. Fast forward to over a year later, and now my living situation is very different. I am living with my parents who are elderly, and Raja is very food crazy. If there is any food left out he will fight you for it (which my parents had to find out the hard way). When it was just him and I it was fine because I made sure everything was put away. I've tried finding other places but either I cannot afford it or they do not allow pets. Raja deserves a home where he can run around and be free. He may steal food straight from your mouth, but he is rambunctious and loving and loves to cuddle. He gets along with other animals, often licking and grooming them. He has a lot of personality and loves roaming around outside. He doesn't actually mind getting baths if he gets really dirty (I think he secretly likes the warm water) and will start to "swim" if you take him in the shower with you. He is also always been good with me about getting his nails trimmed, I've always been able to do it at home.

QTip is poodle. He adopted us. Someone abandoned or lost him on our street. We could not find the owner. He came to our door, entered and stayed. He does princing walk so I believe he was specially trained. We found out he was not fixed when our young Chu got pregnant and had 6 puppies. QTip makes a good watch dog. He is very loyal and loves attention. He stands on his two feet to greet as if he wants to shake your hand. He loves his walks. QTip also loves to sit nearby and is used to dogs, cat, and children. He is calm and polite. He listens to instructions.

For more information about QTip, please contact his guardian at (415) 527-6877.
