Best Characteristics of Red Cats

For the most part I have found them very loving, at times hard-headed about some things though.

Hard headed at times :) Wouldn't trade him for anything.

When, Where and How I Got My Red Cat

Red moved into my back yard a few years ago and stayed for the most part on my patio roof during the night (it was safer up there with the coyotes and a visiting Bobcat in the area). He would run to the back patio if he heard the sliding glass door open because he knew it was meal time. He had a terrible mouth problem with infected teeth and gums, one could tell he was in the area from about 3' away they smelled so terrible. One day he decided he was walking into the house and there he stayed.

I'd Describe My Cat As…

Red is one of the most laid back cats I have known. He is very wary around strangers though and most have never seen him if they come to the house because he hides until they leave. When he first moved in, I took him to the v-e-t and they were amazed that his health was relatively good besides his mouth. He has only his four front teeth left, the rest were all pulled to stop the infections. He can still eat crunchy food with the best of 'em, and loves his treats.


  • They are usually laid back but they do have opinions for sure.
