CHARLIE is a beautiful long-haired orange kitty with the softest fur – perfect for petting! This handsome boy looks much younger than he is – you would never guess he just turned 10 yrs old early August 2020. Charlie is a very sweet kitty who may be a little unsettled when first adjusting to a new home. But it won't take him long to settle in. Once he does, Charlie will be your devoted companion.

Charlie is a sweet lap cat. He loves nothing more than lounging on your lap. At 12 pounds, he's a pretty big boy. But that doesn't deter him from occupying your lap. Charlie has become a big hit with his foster mom's office. With the pandemic underway, Charlie's foster mom works from home and Charlie loves to photo bomb the computer screen when Zoom meetings are taking place.

Charlie also loves to play with toys. He shows off his hunting skills by bringing toy mice from  from room to room. He likes playing with his string toy, which is great because it helps distract him when his foster mom is working from home. Charlie also likes interactive play with his foster mom. He is such a good boy at night…he sleeps in the corner of his foster mom's bed. Charlie knows when it's bed time…he goes right to his spot on the bed every night.

Charlie needs a quieter home where his companions are home a lot. He gets very lonely by himself and needs lots of human love and affection. He is not use to being around children so no young kids now or in the future. Charlie will also do best in a home with another cat. If you don't already have a compatible kitty at home, please consider adopting both Charlie and Ella (posted separately). Charlie and Ella came into our care from the same home. Sadly, their elderly caretaker was no longer able to care for her 12 cats and 6 birds so her family reached out for help finding homes for some of her animals. We don't know how Charlie and Ella will interact with just the two of them, but they are close in age and have very compatible personalities.

Charlie is such a sweet boy. He's waiting for a new home that will give him a second chance at being loved.
