Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)
Posted Jan 28, 2015
I first got my mixed/domestic cat when he wandered up to my house just a few weeks old. My plan was to take him in until I could find a better home for him. However, I became instantly attached. He was so friendly and playful and interacted very well with my other cats. I began to call him "Little" because he was so tiny compared to the other cats of the house.
As time went on, he became anything but "little". As he grew, I noticed that he grew very long from nose to tail, noticeably longer than my other cats. He kept his very calm demeanor and was still very friendly with people and other cats.
He eats like a horse and is easily the biggest "hunter" of the group, often bringing live birds into the house. I often trim my cat's nails, to avoid declawing them, but still save the furniture. All of the other cats treat it like it's the end of their lives, but he just sits there and looks around calmly.
I suppose everyone may have different experiences with their mixed/domestic animals, but mine is the sweetest, calmest cat I have ever had. A recommendation for everyone.
