Please note: Rafael will be rehomed with another cat for company.

Rafael is a gorgeous boy with a loving and calm nature. He’s a very intelligent cat and enjoys playing with a ball toy that runs on a track.  He’ll happily push the ball around the track then wait for it to come back and do it again. He keeps himself very entertained. Rafael is wary when approached and will avoid being picked up. Once he is in your arms though, this smoochy boy cannot get enough pats, cuddles and scratches. He loves to be held and is quite happy to fall asleep in your arms.

Rafael is quite active and loves to play. He practices his climbing on the cat tree, plays with toys and is a regular playful kitten. He likes to sit next to his humans on the couch in the evening, but will sit just out of arms length in the case he is approached. Rafael’s trust is improving and he is much less reactive than when he first came into our care. We are working on Rafael’s trust issues.

A purrfect home for Rafael will be with older teenagers and/or adults who have the patience to allow Rafael time to settle in his new environment. Although it takes Rafael time to trust, once he knows he is safe with you, you will not find a more delightful companion. Rafael doesn’t just want to live with you, he wants to develop a beautiful bond and be an important part of your everyday life.

Rafael is litter trained. Currently he is not tested with dogs or other animals.

Thank you to Kate of Kate Stavrov Photography for the fantastic photos of Rafael.
