Hi, my name is Akuma! I’m a laid back, friendly giant looking for my forever home.
After spending most of the year in the pound, I have settled into domestic life very well. Like a lot of rescue cats I can be a bit uncertain in new places; so when I move into my forever home I will need a quiet space to be able to hide for a few days until I’m ready to explore.
I love to meet new people; I will usually run up for a head scratch and a nose boop – I even like to give your hands or nose a little lick as a sign of my affection. I spend most of my days lounging around, and while I’m not much of a lap cat I do love to follow my humans around the house keeping an eye on them. I like to sit at your feet while you watch TV or do the dishes, and I love to chase the broom while you sweep!
I have a very fluffy coat which I am still getting used to having brushed, so I do leave some fluffballs around the house. Because I have been in the pound for a long time, if I feel cornered or get a fright I might swipe a paw at your feet – now that I am in a safe home I rarely do this, but I would be better suited to a quitter home without little humans, just to be sure. I would like to be the only pet in my new family – I become stressed around dogs, and my large size and rambunctious play tends to annoy my feline foster sisters.
Overall, I am very friendly and well behaved; I mostly enjoy watching things going on around me and I always keep myself out of trouble when my humans are at work!
I weigh in at a large but healthy 6kg, and have recently had my teeth cleaned by the vet – I have been given the tick of full health so you can expect to have me around for a long time!
