Titus is unlike any cat you’ve ever met. Part Bengal, his athleticism is impressive. His foster mom sometimes finds him 8 feet off the ground with no idea how he got there. His long legs are built for speed and he has big soulful eyes. He was surrendered to Abbey Cats because his elderly owner was no longer able to care for him.
Titus is a sweet boy. His 3 month old foster brothers adore him and he’s sweet and gentle with his baby brothers (and slightly afraid of them for some reason). He’s a bit goofy and socially awkward but it’s terribly charming, really.
Being part Bengal, Titus does have some unique traits. The sounds he makes can be somewhat alarming at first. His “I want pets” noise is loud and assertive and could be misunderstood. He sometimes says “hiss” when he means “purr” (but only until he feels safe). We think he’s just had some scary experiences in his life but he really is a sweet boy and is settling into family life, occasionally coming up on the couch for cuddles.
Titus had some specific needs. He has had some bad experiences with rough children so would need a home with no kids or older kids. His wild cat breed means that he has a lot of energy. He’s been so kind with the kittens we think he would do well with another cat to play with and learn from.
Most of all Titus needs a family who can give him time to settle into his new rhythm. His big, wild looks mask a sweet, timid sensitive soul who needs a few weeks to feel safe. Once he trusts you you will have a charming, exotic, goofy buddy for life.
Titus needs to have a safe, private place while he’s settling into his new home. Like all the big cats, Titus needs a large sturdy tree to fulfill his scratching instincts and distract him from the sofa.
Titus would be best with other cats to play with. He would not do well in a home with young children. An experienced cat couple who would relish his truly loving heart and his odd vocalizations would be ideal for him.
