Handsome young Binx is ready for a new home! Playful, funny, talkative, active, affectionate, and curious Binx would make a wonderful companion to another young cat or a kitten.
Binx was born in the spring of 2019 and spent his first year on the street in a small colony of feral cats. He was in foster care while he first recovered from some minor health issues and then learned to be a delightful addition to a busy household. Binx gets along well with the other cats and dog in his foster home, although he is perhaps a bit disappointed that they are not as playful as he might prefer. His nocturnal behaviors like singing in the bathtub have subsided. He is still capable of knocking things over in the night but more often, he is sleeping like a brick at the foot of the bed nowadays.
Binx is a tree climber! The top of the refrigerator and hood vent over the stove are some of his past conquests. He spends a lot of his day napping atop a cat tree or baking in a sunny window.
Binx is very playful and curious. He is obsessed with certain interactive toys and will even stand and meow near the drawer where they are stored. This is a great way to tire him out and work off his energy. As with most cats, he will check out a good box, bag, or closet. He also plays by himself with certain toy mice. Over the summer, Binx had some kittens in his foster home and he absolutely loved being around that playful, young energy. They would play for hours on the cat tree and all groom each other before catnapping on the bed or in a window. Binx likes being petted and being in the room with people. He does not seem to mind being picked up for short periods and he has more recently taken to sleeping with humans at night.
Binx has some tear duct damage in his left eye from the upper respiratory infection that he suffered before he was rescued. His eye produces some discharge because it does not drain properly but it is just wiped away with a damp cloth.
Binx absolutely needs a feline playmate in his forever home, with which he can bond through playing, wrestling, grooming, and napping. We believe he be best suited to be paired with a playful cat of similar age or a younger cat/kitten after seeing how much he loved having some kittens around.He'll probably be fine with cat-savvy children.
