Meet the distinguished old gentleman, Ronan!
Ronan is a very sweet and affectionate boy, eager for your attention. He knows exactly what he wants, when he wants it! Though he is eager to initiate cuddles, Ronan can a bit spicy when he feels his space is being invaded. He does exhibit some “petting-aggression” and does not like being touched near his tail or legs. For this reason, we do not feel Ronan would thrive in a home with young children. He would really benefit in a home where he can move about as he pleases and receive affection on his terms.
Despite having strict boundaries – Ronan is quite the chatter box and will chirp away to get your attention! Be prepared for many rubs against your leg, as Ronan really enjoys expressing his love!
Ronan has let us know he really enjoys his high perch and would love a space or two where he can watch from up tall! He would also like a patient human who will can provide a regular, gentle grooming to keep his coat feeling and looking his best! Ronan did receive a cool hair cut from his vet to help ensure his new humans get the best version of Ronan!
Ronan does have suspect stage 2 kidney disease insufficiency; however, it is manageable with special kidney diet and medication. It is super important that Ronan has regular vet check ups and stays on his special diet. For this reason, he will be adopted with a waiver going over this in further detail.
We dont have a ton of information regarding this cool cats history. Through our own observation, Ronan does not react negatively towards the other cats if he sees or hears them – but beyond that we cannot say for certain how he will react to other cats in his environment.
