Crossbones is from Germany, I adopted him in 2011 from a farm where he lived with several cats and dogs. He had fleas, ear mites and a voracious appetite. I sat down with the family at their dining table where a mom cat was feeding her sick baby. Crossbones jumped up on the table, I think to beg for food, and then just sat there as I spoke to that family about their pets for adoption. He just sat there and looked at me, asked for some head pets and I knew I wanted him to be part of my family.
Having learned to fight for food growing up, he tries to eat food as fast as possible. After the past 8 years of living with him and feeding him, he has only slowed a little bit. He’s a quick cat and very friendly and loveable. He may be shy at first but, once he warms up to a person, he’ll be next to you asking for food…or pets. On a cold night he likes to burrow under the covers and cuddle. He’s very chill. He’s also very fast! His play and hunt instinct are on point and sometimes he startles me with how fast he can jump on a string or jump to catch a fluffy ball.
In short, that’s Crossbones.
