Bartholomew is a 7~ year old Maine Coon X who came to Abbey Cats through a cat shelter north of the city, and was eager from the start to be back inside the warmth and comforts of a home!
He is obviously familiar with the pleasures of life as a pet, as he is always incredibly friendly, social, and ADORES cuddling.
You won't have an issue becoming intimate with Bart - in fact, you may find yourself swatting him away instead!
That being said, he is very respectful of personal space, and will love a perch or chair of his own to watch you while you work.
He loves to follow humans around, and will sometimes meow and vocalize, saying, "Hi! Hello!" before settling down for a good old fashioned nap.
Bart is still very stimulated by toys and social interaction.
He is a larger boy, and sometimes seems lazy, but he is truly eager for some physical stimulation and exercise.
His favourite toys are a tall cat condo, chasing the laser pointer, and being around his pet owners.
Since he is a Maine Coon (cross), he has very long hair that needs combing and grooming from his adopters.
Currently, he has a bit of matted hair, but he so thoroughly enjoys grooming - he will grab the comb and brush himself for you!
Any adopter must be prepared to spend time in daily grooming and needs to have experience with a long haired cat.
Bartholomew would be extremely friendly to all people - his size is the same as a small child but he would probably do well in a family setting.
He would like to have another laid back cat friend or would be fine with a person who is home most of the day.
****Experience with long haired cats is required- so that his beautiful coat doesn’t get so matted again*****
