Sesame Seed is a long, athletic boy who is looking for a home with an experienced cat owner and ideally another, social young cat to be his friend. He is a shy cat when it comes to meeting new people but he’s full of energy and loves to play.
Sesame and his siblings were born outside to a stray cat. The poor kitty received some injuries and was doing her best to raise a litter of kittens with limited resources, but they needed help. They were rescued by a team of volunteers and came into care when they were about 6 weeks old. Until then, they weren’t used to being handled, so they can be quite shy around new people and in new environments.
Sesame’s whole litter was shy when they first came into care, but he was the first kitten to start playing with his foster family. Play is absolutely the key to this boy’s heart. He has lots of energy and loves to run around chasing toys of all kinds: string toys, scratching posts, ping pong balls, you name it. Sesame has a lot of energy so a home with another young, playful cat that he can play with will be best to help keep him entertained and out of trouble.
Sesame’s second favourite thing (next to toys) is eating. He loves his food and will eat out of your hand if you give him treats. It may take this guy a while to warm up to new people and gain that trust, but once he does, he’s a great little cat.
Sesame is not comfortable around dogs because when he was living as a stray (before he was rescued) his only experiences with neighbourhood dogs were scary for him. He seems to be OK around teen-aged kids that are calm and cat savvy, but Sesame won’t be comfortable around young children that move fast or speak loudly.
