Charles was found by VOKRA volunteers on the street when he started showing up at a feral cat feeding station, starving and sick. He was taken into foster care and nursed back to health, where it was discovered that he was probably not a wild thing from the start - which is wonderful, since he loves people, but sad, as it means he was most likely abandoned. Charles is extremely social, sometimes more like a dog than a cat - he follows us around the house, and comes when he's called at least half the time. He loves to be where his people are, and snuggle up - especially in the morning. Morning Charles in the sunshine is that wonderful kind of liquid cat that just radiates love.
He is not shy in the least and will march right up and headbutt you or rub up against your legs for attention. However, while Charles is social and affectionate, he does have boundaries that need to be respected. He can get overstimulated, and so he is not recommended for a house with dogs or small children. He has been kept with other cats (we fostered him with a female, Casey, the black and white cat pictured with him) but since she has been adopted he's been on his own. He'd be ok with another cat, but would need to be introduced slowly.
He can't be fed food containing grains, as it tends to upset his stomach, but otherwise he is healthy, happy, rambunctious, and always uses his litter box. Charlie really is a one-of-a-kind guy. He has had a rough go of it and is looking for his forever home - if you are looking for a fun, unique cat who will keep you endlessly entertained, then he might be looking for you!
