UPDATE:Charlie Brown was adopted!!!
Charlie clearly had a caretaker as he soon warmed up to the volunteer feeders. But not all outdoor cats are adoptable for indoors. There was only one way to find out. Within a few days, Charlie has adjusted to living indoors. Even more it is believed he may be part American Curl cat. These are cats known for two things.
First their ears. While most have slight curl or curve, they are shorter than most cats. Charlie's ears do not have the curl but are definitely shorter. Even more fascinating, his ears point forward and sideways like antennas when he hears a noise.
Second, American Curls have qualities other than the whimsical ears to make them attractive pets. They are people cats that do not show any of the stereotypical aloofness, and are affectionate without harassing people for attention the way some breeds can. Charlie exhibits this quality. You can easily pick him up and place him on your lap or next to you and he curls up like a baby and welcomes you to pet him.
Feel free to change his name. Other ideas for names include "Detroit" because he's a soft purring engine when you pet him nonstop. Or "Jiminy Cricket" because his ears move like antennas of an insect.
Charlie is neutered, tested negative to feline Aids and leukemia and received both rabies and other shots. All medical paperwork available upon adoption.
His current foster family is moving out of the country and would love to keep him as they fell in love with Charlie and his personality and ears... but he would have to be quarantined for months! So if you adopt him in next three weeks, the fee is only $35. After April 23, the fee is $75.
