Only with laid back small dogs. No big or busy dogs.
Dutch is a big kitty with a big personality who lives for food and naps! It has taken some time for Dutch to fully adjust to his comfortable, safe life in a foster home. He just recently started making biscuits which was fun to see for this tough guy! He likes to cuddle up when people are relaxing and he would rather not be picked up. Dutch has been around other cats in the home and he does well with slower intros. He even had a chance to be a big brother to a rescue kitten and did excellent with him! Dogs are tolerable for Dutch since he is not an aggressor. Friendly dogs learn quickly to not get too close, thanks to a warning hiss. He won’t likely become a dog’s best friend but he will definitely be yours. Since he really does live for food, you will see his feisty side come out when he’s hungry. If an interesting, calm, sometimes quirky, and happy companion is what you need….Dutch is your guy!
Update: We have had Dutch SEVEN months now and his personality is still changing and coming out. His most recent change was a big one when we rescued a kitten! He treats the kitten kind of like a son grooming him, teaching him how to wrestle, and “protecting” him from the big, scary (gentle, nice) dog. His demeanor has gotten much gentler now that he can play with the kitten instead of our toes! The kitten has taught him a few naughty things but he has taught the kitten many good things! I think Dutch would do really well in a home with a kitten but he might not do as well with a full grow cat as he can be a bit feisty and territorial towards our other adult foster cat. Even with his FIV he acts like a happy healthy cat and that’s what he is! Dutch is interesting and quirky but he is also a mellow cat who just wants love!
