Max
6-7 years, 14 pounds, Oakland

Max was a rescue cat found, as a tiny, fluffy, kitten, outside where I used to work in Redwood City. I took him in when the person who first rescued him couldn't care for him.

More

Max was a rescue cat found, as a tiny, fluffy, kitten, outside where I used to work in Redwood City. I took him in when the person who first rescued him couldn't care for him. I believe he's part/possibly half Maine Coon as he has many Maine Coon features - the long hair, tufts on his ears, fur on his paws, his length/size, his sweet nature...
He's sweet and loving, shy, yet adaptable to new people. I've had to have him looked after by various different cat-sitters in the past few months; though shy at first, after a few days he is as loving to the new people as he ever was to me!
He has some toy cats that he's very fond of and loves to play. He's also very entertaining and makes hardly any noise; he has never whined for food in the morning, and loves to curl up on the bed. He's been an indoor-outdoor cat while I've had him which means he generally goes to the bathroom outside, though he uses a litter box at night when the cat door is shut. He doesn't litter outside the box, has almost never had a hairball, and is very well behaved. I think he'd need to go to a home with outdoor space as, being born outside, he really likes to be able to go outside. He used to have some cat-friends that belonged to a neighbor that moved, so I know he likes other cats. However he's very passive and will let other cats give him the run-around; he's such a sweetie, that he'll just stand there while they eat his food!

Looking to re-home a gentle, calm, and low key perfect lap cat. Hobbes is a 13 year old Russian Blue mix.

He has a very quiet temperament, loves laps, and will purr at the drop of a hat. Medical history does include Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease, minor chronic rhinitis. He has had full mouth extractions and so has no teeth! But that doesn't matter, because he would never bite even if his life depended upon it. Eats a prescription urinary diet, on once daily medication to prevent urinary issues.

I'm 6 years young and am looking for a great & patient person to love on! People often call me a 'low rider' due to my husky build & short legs, but I think it works for me - if I do say so myself! I am very laidback and often like to lounge or cuddle with my special person most days. But don't be fooled, I like to play too when my person wants t; I'm always game!

Even though I do like to play, I am better suited with a family with older kids or adults as I do get a little nervous with tiny humans. I may be shy and apprehensive at first, but once you get me out of my shell, my love and cuddles have no bounds with you. I am afraid of loud, sudden sounds and hate to be alone, so would prefer to be with my person the majority of the day. Also, I find a ton of comfort in my crate when I do need to be alone.

I am currently up-to-date with all my shots & ready for a happy home!

Snickie still has a lot of life in her. She LOVES frequent, leisurely walks and gentle attention from people. She's house-trained, doesn't bite, and is patient to a fault (she would make a bad guard dog because she would probably befriend an intruder). She has some special needs, but you wouldn't know that if you saw how hard she tries to run and pull on the leash when she's out for a walk! She's a pampered, indoor dog so she won't sleep outside as she prefers to be around her people. If you have the resources, time, and experience to care for a sweet senior dog, Snickie would love to meet you!
