Pecan is a soft, chocolatey fluffmeister with russet highlights and an incredibly sumptuous tail. He has adorable little patches above his eyes that give him a permanently quizzical look. Overall, he has a distinctive and exotic look.
Pecan totally had me fooled. When he first joined our household, I thought he was a little shy. Nothing unusual, just slightly hesitant when he first met folks. But in fact, what he is is smart. He's not scared, he's observant. He studies new people and new situations and is constantly learning. He's one of the few cats I've met that is starting to realize the vacuum isn't threatening. Once he figures stuff out, Pecan is outgoing and quite opinionated, especially about wet food, treats and his favorite sparkly toy. When he's not trying to persuade you to play, Pecan is ultra mellow and really gentle. He's fine with being smooshed on (it happens a lot) and even tolerates being picked up like a baby, but he's not much of a lap cat, preferring to maintain some dignity. He loves to play with dangling toys and is an amazing gymnast, twisting and hurtling himself through the air. Pecan has proven himself adaptable to many environments; he can be pretty rough and tumble but likes his long calm afternoon naps. He would love to be adopted with his lap-cat buddy, Rothko. Love and a little stimulation is all this sweetie pie needs.rnrnPecan has a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. While he is currently asymptomatic, he will need to be given a pill twice daily for the rest of this life.
Pecan was rescued from a friendly outdoor colony with 7 other cats.
