Please meet Nathan! Nathan is our playful, fun-loving baby kitty. We adopted him last February after falling in love with him at an adoption event at a pet supply store. He was under the care of The Cat People which is an amazing local cat rescue/support organization here in Bakersfield. He was about one year old then and had been in foster care since he was a kitten. Even though he is about the cutest, sweetest, friendliest, softest kitty in the world, he was overlooked because he is black and then continued to be overlooked because he was no longer a kitten. Adult black cats are the least ‘adoptable’ cats. For me they are the MOST desired!! It is my mission to help save as many grown up black kitties as I can!
Nathan adapted to our family quickly and easily. We only kept him separate for about a day. He was friendly to Bas and Pepper even though they weren’t so accepting of him. He wasn’t afraid and just said, “Hey, I’m here now- deal with it!” :) haha.
On Nathan’s cage card at the adoption event it said, “Loves to be combed.” And boy does he! He is a super loud purr-er and when you comb him his purr-box goes crazy! He will let you comb him for hours if you wanted to!
Nathan loves to ‘stalk’ birds through the window and will crouch down and wiggle his little hind quarters and jump at the window. He also has the sweetest high pitched twilling voice. I can’t get enough of his meows! He can entertain himself playing with his various toys and loves to attack the scratching post. I hear him dragging his toys around the house at night, knocking into walls and generally having a blast!
Nathan was such a fun and special edition to our family. We just love this little life of the party!
I wish my cat would love being combed! She doesn’t even clean herself, so unfortunately we have to comb her and she HATES it!
Ha! Maxie loves to stalk outside birds too. We put some bird seed on the window sill! Nathan is such a cutie! I want to do his hair!!
Umm, he would LOVE you to do his hair!!
Ah I love Nathan, he reminds me of Theo because when I brought Theo home he didn’t care that Trina hated him and snuggled up to her despite her hissing.
Aww that is awesome! Theo always reminded me of Nathan when you would post pics.
Still love reading your Cat Friends posts. Always make me smile :)
I’m so glad you enjoy them! Let me know if you have any cat friends you’d like to feature! :)
[…] I get it all set. In the meantime- here’s a pic of the cheerful rug I picked, and my beloved Nathan checking it […]
