Biography

Tuisku is a very playful, energetic guy who needs lots of attention! He is very hyper and a wrestler, who needs to live in a home with another age appropriate kitten that he gets along with, to appropriately get his energy spent with lots of running and play time!

His birthday is estimated to be October 6th, 2023, and he was found by a wonderful lady in a barn, almost completely frozen, abandoned by his mother, with two of his other siblings. This awesome person nurtured all three of them back to health, and bottle fed them day and night until introducing solid foods at 6 weeks of age. I adopted Tuisku from her on December 7th, 2023 and have since had him attend two vet check ups and recieved his deworming and vaccinations. He is not spayed yet.

Unfortunately my older cat Jessi saw Tuisku as an intruder in our home and began violently attacking him, this poor kitty. I tried my best to give them a slow interaction with supervision, but the tension was so severe my only option was to seperate them completely. It is not a happy home when one of them is being completely isolated at a time while the other cat roams the house freely. I currently have Tuisku being fostered by my Mother, since he just could not be happy at my home any longer. It truly breaks my heart.

His high energy and rough play can be an issue for someone who doesn't have enough time to play with him consistently or have the skills to help him overcome his behavioural issues when it comes to play aggression. As sweet, kind, cuddly and adorable as Tuisku is, he has his challenges, and needs someone who can properly help him overcome these challenges, in a stress free and quiet home, with another cat he gets along with. Please be fully aware that he does bite and scratch playfully, and will pounce at you, like little kittens practicing to hunt, do. He needs a pet parent who is okay with this and can take as much time as possible to help him direct this energy into appropriate playing.

He also suffers from anxiety and can tend to urinate or defecate when startled or over stressed. This guy started out life rough and needs to be reminded frequently that he is safe and loved and protected.

With all those issues aside, he is absolutely wonderful! When he isn't too stressed he will curl up on your chest, kiss your face, purr up a storm and fall fast asleep. He has so much love in his heart and it shows by the way he'll look at you. He is so precious, so kind and I want him to have the best life ever.

Since the stress of upending a kitties life and moving home and family, is so very much! I need to ensure that his new family will be his forever family, and that his new home is very stable and secure. Please reach out to me if you think that you may he the perfect fit :)
