Rafiki is his own man! He is an intelligent cat, and he is an excellent hunter. He likes human companionship but on his own terms. Because of his high energy and zest for life, he has the propensity to become easily overstimulated, so he would do well with someone who observes and responds sensitively to a cat's likes & dislikes. He would not be appropriate for a home with children. But he is truly an interesting, intelligent, and entertaining fellow for adult companionship.
He currently acts as ForeverMeow mascot and mouser and also enjoys access to a "catio" - an enclosed outdoor cat safe porch. He has the energy level of a "Bengal", so be prepared to offer a cat porch or lots of interactive playtime with fishing-pole wand-style toys!! He could even be your working cat in a safe indoor environment such as an office, warehouse, or light-industrial space.
We think Rafiki would do best as an only cat.
