This kitty is a real gem. He is an orange tabby with a bit of white on his face and orange eyes. He is really friendly, active, vocal, and follows you around like a puppy. I'm really happy with this kitty.
When I saw an ad for a kitten, I went to see him and he was such a darling little orange ball of fluff. His tail was the fluffiest I've ever seen. The homeowners already had several dogs and cats so they were looking for a home for this kitten.
When I got him home, it didn't take long for him and my Golden Retriever to get along (but they do still occasionally play fight). Teddy Bear seemed like the perfect name since he resembles a plush toy and loves to cuddle. This cat had not yet been neutered so he had a tendency to roam at night. Once I got him fixed though, he has stayed close to home.
His personality is loving, affectionate, friendly, and playful. You'll have to teach your kitty that play time does not include scratching or biting. You can do that by immediately ending play time and even turning your back on kitty anytime he plays inappropriately.
This cat is very vocal and will meow a hello whenever he (or you) enters the room. He will also go to the door when hearing you arrive and give you a welcoming meow. He also loves to cuddle on the couch, curling up on your feet and purring up a storm.
Overall, domestic cats are wonderful pets. I love my little Teddy Bear.
