OJ has a personality. He is loving and affectionate with his people family, and comes out to greet visitors he knows and loves. He wants to be petted, and when he is done will let you know with a swat. A cat lover will learn OJ's cues and timing quickly. (A young child probably not.)
OJ has been a loving and faithful companion of my Mom and Dad for 16 years. My dad passed in 2008. During my mom's final months OJ was especially attentive. My mother's passing left OJ without a permanent home. I live in NY and have two cats. After long thought, I sadly recognize a 3 cat household wouldn't be good for OJ or the NY cats.
A quiet home with no other pets nor (young) children would be ideal. OJ likes to socialize on his own schedule. He might hide under the bed or in the closet when there is a lot of noise, sees the car carrier (=trip to vet), or just because. And then he will pop out and keep company for hours. He almost always comes out to greet visiting "trusted human friends" when they walk thru the door.
OJ has seen the vet regularly and is healthy for a 16 yo cat. As with many senior cats, his kidneys will require watching. The vet suggested moving to lower protein diet, wet food and encourage water.
OJ is currently living in Pacifica, CA 94044
