Best Characteristics of Red Cats
My orange tabby is very placid and easy-going. I have never heard him "hiss" even once in his life! Very sweet and gentle, he even likes to snuggle with my house-rabbit! Also gets along well with my Retriever; the cat likes to try and catch the dog's bushy tail!
Most Challenging Characteristics of the Red Cat
I really can't think of ANY!
When, Where and How I Got My Red Cat
I will let you in on a little secret....I never used to like red cats! Then one day I went to a cat adoption day at a local pet store, and fell in love with a sweet little orange tabby kitten. [then 10 weeks old.] He's such a good kitty; never any trouble at all. "Cuddles" is the first and only cat I have ever "been owned by", and he is definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made!
I'd Describe My Cat As…
My orange tabby cat is very good-natured and affectionate; he loves to "butt heads" as a show of affection! He wins over everyone with his charming personality, even converting former cat haters into cat lovers! A member of my family who used to dislike cats was recently seen contentedly napping with my orange tabby, and often shares her pillow with Cuddles overnight. A true miracle!
- The advice I would give to someone thinking of getting a red cat is, "just go for it"! You won't regret it; they are wonderful!
