Lots and lots of crazy kitten energy...That is what our Russell has. This sweet boy is roughly 8 months old. He didnât lose his tail in an accident. He was born that way, as Russell is a Manx cat, a breed of felines born naturally without tails. However, he did suffer severe trauma to his eye, either from rough play from a littermate or an attack by a wild animal.
His eye could not be saved, but being a one-eyed cat doesnât slow Russell down one bit. His foster mom reports that he has endless energy.
Russell hasnât had any exposure to dogs, but knowing his easy-going, playful nature, we think he would get used to and be fine with a cat-friendly canine. Heâs very social with other cats. Although he has had only limited exposure to children, through the foster momâs nieces and nephews, we think he would be fine with well-mannered children over ten years of age. Russell is very affectionate with people, so the more âpeopleâ he has in his new home, the better.
His foster mom who rescued him and paid for his eye surgery had planned to give him his forever home, and has been fostering him since pulling him from an overcrowded shelter when he was about a month old. But as he has grown bigger, heâs proven to play too rough with one of her resident cats who has deformed front legs. All Russell wants to do is play. He is very, very social. But with the resident cat, playtimes are too much. She is heartbroken as Russell is her sweet little boy. But rather than wait and see if Russell slows down in his more adult years, she thinks itâs better for both of her boys to find an excellent other home for Russell.
He is up-to-date on his shots and has been neutered.
