Zuko is a 16-month old tuxedo cat who we adopted at 9 weeks from OHS after someone found him on a golf course. He's an indoor/outdoor kitty who enjoys exploring the outdoors, socializing with other neighborhood cats, and sprinting distances just for the fun of it! His daily routine is to greet me sweetly in the morning after I wake up, he immediately wants to be let outside for a couple hours, then he comes back to munch on some cat food, and afterward he goes back outside for another hour or so. He'll follow his human family for walks around the block. If we go too far for him, he'll call for us and wait until we get back. When he's inside, he likes to sleep on his window perch in the afternoon. His favorite games are to chase his springs around the house, run after the laser pointer, and kick one of his kicker toys. He generally does not like to be overly petted. When he does want human touch, he jumps on my lap so to have me scratch around his ears, jaw, and neck until I can't scratch anymore. Fortunately he's never been sick or injured, and according to the vet, does really well with vet visits. He has never had an accident in the house and is litter box trained. As he's only a year old, he still needs to get a lot of exercise and run around a lot every day. Our family is expecting our second child soon and we're concerned about how the already limited open floor space in our small 2-BR duplex will be shrunk even more with the addition of an infant. Zuko tends to get overstimulated easily and would greatly benefit from a bigger home, less crowded house, and/or the company of another cat. Also, soon after the arrival or our new baby, my work is transferring me across country. We very much want Zuko to be just as loved in his new family and for him to have a home where he can thrive.
