Biography

I am looking for a home with better living conditions for my best friend, Carrot.
I recently made some major nomadic life changes that Carrot is having a difficult time adjusting to and I would like to find a stable environment that he feels safe and comfortable in.

I am looking for a home that would be for his highest good. I am not looking to simply release him from my life. He is a particular cat that comes with some challenges but also many benefits given the right circumstances.

He is a huge 8-year old Nebelung mix, with long grey fur and weighs 16 pounds.

In his ideal home he would be the only pet, although he has lived with cats in the past.
He enjoys outdoor time but his highest priorities are food and his bonded human. He requires a degree of 1 on 1 attention and loves to be held and snuggled. He is not skittish and is extremely friendly as long as he doesn’t feel threatened. He would do very well with an older child with a gentle disposition who has the time and energy to play with him.

He is EXCELLENT with humans needing emotional support and would do well bonded to a human (any age) who needs him. He has a lifetime of experience working to calm me through high emotional upheaval. He is familiar with panic attacks and has sat patiently on my lap (unprompted) acting as a weighted blanket when I’ve needed that support.

He is also extremely intelligent and when he is not properly stimulated via food, bonding time, light exercise, he can funnel his intelligence into making trouble. He can open most cabinet doors and drawers and will explore any place he can get into. He sleeps about 16 hours a day but when he is active he does require some stimulating bonding time. When not properly stimulated he can have some defiant attention seeking behaviors (scratching furniture, knocking things over, making noise, chasing feet) and he can be very tenacious with little regard to corrective measures (using a spray bottle, redirection, etc.) Those behaviors usually subside only when he is in an environment where he has adequate stimulation.
