Ramses draws you in with his steady, intelligent gaze and handsome looks. The second thing you might notice is that he has three legs. Despite being a tripod, this brave fellow jumps, plays, uses his scratching post, and is able to go up and down short flights of stairs - perhaps just a little slower and less nimbly than his four-legged counterparts. His favorite toys are stuffed mice that make noise, Da Bird feather toy, and anything with catnip. He is also a pro with puzzle or work-to-eat toys and he loves cat grass. Ramses is a very dignified and independent kitty who prefers to come to you when he wants attention instead of being picked up. If you respect that personality trait he will trust you and reveal his outgoing and friendly nature. He loves to have his ears and chin scratched and may even settle in your lap for a while, but he mostly just likes to be nearby instead of cuddling. He is very protective of his territory and would not welcome sharing it with any other pets. His ideal human companions would be mature and have prior cat experience - might that describe you? If you are looking for a very special companion who needs and deserves a second chance at happiness, why not come to meet Ramses?

On the feline-ality (personality) scale, Ramses is known as a SIDEKICK. Here is how he describes himself: Like all sidekicks, I'm just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don't go looking for trouble but I'm no scaredy-cat, either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.

This wonderful cat qualifies for the Senior Citizen Discount program: senior citizens or disabled adults with a 'Gold Card for Healthy Aging', or a 'FLASH' card, issued by the City of Seattle, may adopt an adult cat (at least six years old) at a special price.
