Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)
Posted Jul 16, 2013
A few years ago I owned a very cheeky Australian mist cat called Wuss. He was a stray and I just took him home. He was super energetic - he would wake me up in the night to play and eat. As he matured he became a bit more settled and he developed a round head and large, expressive eyes. His coat was very short, so didnt need much brushing - which meant minimal hair loss.
He certainly had character and if we got mad at him he would destroy something - like pictures that were hanging, pillows and mats - however he did grow out of that.
He was super friendly and would be very gently with babies and kids - he never scratched. He enjoyed staying inside so we made him an indoor cat and that seemed to please him.
Unfortunately we moved over seas for a while and had to give him to a neighbour. It was sad because apparantly he meowed for us for a few weeks - however last I heard he had settled in and grew to love his new owners. I recommend only buying this cat if you plan on keeping it for ever - as they grow very attached to the family and have seperation anxiety (so did we).
