Rescue cat for adoption in Greenslopes, Brisbane: **adoption pending**   Look no further than Puggles if you are seeking a charismatic cat that will attract plenty of oohs and aahs.

This delightful Norwegian Forest X is a self-assured bundle of loud purrs and headbutts. His thick mane and bushy tail, combined with his sturdy build and striking markings, make him a very handsome fellow. Add to this his calm, yet playful, demeanour and you have a truly appealing companion.

Puggles loves being near his humans. Watching TV or washing the dishes? Puggles will flop down on the floor near you. Studying at your desk? He will saunter over for a headbutt and purr, before collapsing onto the desk for a snooze. He is not a lap cat; however, he does not object to being picked up.

Puggles tends to become active in the early morning, when he chases balls and makes chirping noises. Typical of his breed, Puggles loves to climb. His preferred sleeping spot is on top of a wardrobe. This love of heights means Puggles would be suited to a home that has a climbing tree or outside enclosure. A sturdy scratching post is also a must.

Puggles keeps his beautiful mane in good condition and tolerates gentle brushing. His coat does not require a lot of grooming, it is very soft and doesn’t knot like some long haired breeds. His passion for eating would delight any chef, as he typically finishes his bowl before coming over to ask for more.

A breed profile sums up Puggle’s personality quite closely:
“Known as the Skogkatt in its native Norway, the Norwegian Forest Cat is a large, semi-longhaired cat whose rugged appearance fits its name. Despite the hardy facade, this breed is very much a homebody that enjoys the company of other pets and particularly their human companions. Their relationship with you can best be described as “on their own terms.” Yes, Forest Cats can be lap cats, but THEY will decide when to get on or off that lap. At a minimum, Forest Cats insist on being near their people in a place of their choosing: chair, bed, or desktop. A scratching post and a cat tree, preferably tall, are musts for the Norwegian Forest Cat home. These are moderatelyy active cats; there will be bursts of energy followed by long naps. Sensitive yet social, you will find them to be intelligent cats that adapt readily to change. Breeders are often asked if these cats need to be outside. As with all cats, inside the home is quite suitable and is certainly the safest environment. Providing interesting toys, perches with outside views, and most importantly, regular one-on-one time will result in a well-adjusted cat.”

Puggles is approximately 2 years old and his adoption fee is $150.00.
