Marco is an explorer who also likes to talk about his adventures, his hopes, his dreams. He'll tell you what he's thinking, call for your attention and loves it when you cry, "POLO" back to him after he clearly says, "MARCO!" He's got a fantastic purr and is the sweetest little guy!
Marco's favorite pastime is sitting on people
..in many poses..
.. While getting chin rubs .
.. and being as ..
.. CLOSE as possible!!
Marco thinks his forever home better come with a lot of lap time!! He is truly the epitome of a lap cat; pat your lap, call his name and he's there for a cuddle. Marco likes to do whatever you're doing with you on your lap; he'll be your reading buddy, TV watching partner, or help you with work. When not claiming laps as his own, Marco is very playful, enjoying jingle balls, tunnels, mouse toys and anything else he can find to play with.
Marco also does like to explore his world with all of his senses, particularly taste as he likes to lick and try EVERYTHING in his mouth, but is learning how to interact with things (and people) without tasting.
He would do best with a furry friend to keep from getting bored and to learn more about proper catting. He is submissive but utterly playful with other cats.
Marco though is a good example of single kitten syndrome. He was originally rescued off the street as a baby kitten and raised by an older woman who was home all the time. But he started getting bored. Would jump out to pounce on her (appropriate behavior for a kitten but not with people) or nip when he wanted something. He would climb things (as kittens do) and her constantly telling him no only made him scared of her and more frustrated. As a general rule, we recommend that young kittens only go in pairs or to households that already have another pet. Young kittens on their own, no matter how much attention they get from humans, usually get bored and tend to be more destructive. They need another animal to help socialize them (to learn how to appropriately wrestle, boundaries, etc). Most times having another cat is the best, though some may be okay with a gentle dog. He will definitely thrive in a home with another cat.
As a singleton he was a lot to handle especially when she feared he had swallowed something he'd been chewing on. He was surrender to us for surgery the potential obstruction He's fully recovered and doing great well.
He is an adorable, small kitten who is looking for his forever lap.
