Cheesepuff is a neutered young adult orange and white tabby born approximately 9/20/22.

Cheesepuff is a very sweet, quiet cat in his foster home. He enjoys playing with toys and snuggling with the other foster cats. He loves being pet, and tolerates brushing, but particularly like butt scritches. Cheesepuff is very comfortable around cat-savvy dogs and loves treats, particularly fish paste sticks (think Churu, Tiki Cat Stix). He likes to bathe in the sunroom on the cushions with the other cats and enjoys batting around mouse toys. He is very fond of his brother Cheeseslice.

He has a beautiful orange and white coat, of a longer medium length, though he does not require brushing, but it would be beneficial to brush him occasionally to reduce hairballs. His fur is extremely soft. Cheesepuff would probably do well in a home with very respectful children, as long as he has another confident feline companion in the home. His ideal situation would be to go to a home with his brother Cheeseslice, or at least have another cat in the home he can snuggle and hang out with while his humans are away. He has been waiting a very long time for a loving home and would love a place to call his own!

Cheesepuffs brother (Cheeseslice) tested positive feline calicivirus and feline herpes at two months old and is likely a carrier for these feline viruses, so the best home for him
will be with someone who understands the possibility that he could have "breakouts"- however, in the year he has been with his foster, he has shown no intrusive symptoms of the viruses. Cheesepuff does have a "leaky" right eye (meaning it will get a little gooey), but he keeps it pretty clean. The fosters own cat was also tested for the viruses one year after they had lived together in the same household, and it came out negative. As long as vaccinations are up to date, theres a good chance Cheesepuff can move into a household that already has resident cats, with no viral exchange.

Cats with feline herpes or calicivirus may exhibit symptoms or flareups ranging in severity, randomly or in times of stress throughout their life.
