Chakra has been our beloved family pet for 2.5 years and its with a heavy heart that we decide to find a new forever home for her. We are a family with three children and another 1year old female Maine Coon, Tofu, who is Chakra’s daughter from her first litter.
Chakra has been a lovely pet to our family, she is gentle, intelligent and playfull, loves having her chin rubbed over and over and always runs with her tail up to us to get some attention. She has been particularly close and affectionate with one of my daughters, who she sleeps, cuddles up with and delivered all her kitties on her lap. Chakra loves people company and always follows us around the house and spends time where we all are, even if its noisy and busy. She loves the sound of the piano and spends hours napping on it while my dauhter plays. She also has an adventurous personality, and through her catflap, she enjoyes the total freedom of exploring our and the neighbours’ quiet back gardens. She is intuitive, fast and brave and I have seen her chasing foxes out of our garden, but at the same time she has never hunted any prey, and even have a squirrel that regularly likes to tease both our cats 😊. As we are a vegan family and truly believe that pets do not belong to us but rather share their life with us, we decided not to neuter Chakra, to give her the possibility to enjoy her instincts and passions to the full. This meant that over the years she occasionally found “boyfriends” and has had 3 beautiful litters of kittens. Chakra has been an exceptional mother to them all, full of instinct and care for her babies. So when we decided to keep Tofu from her first litter, we didn’t expect her reaction. Once all the other kittens had left at 13 weeks, Chakra was confused on why Tofu remained. So she tried to push her out of her territory, by being hostile and sometimes aggressive with her (not people). We waited and waited, hoping that her behaviour would change, but things haven’t really improved. And although now Chakra tolerates Tofu, who is very remissive and has a very calm and sweet personality, life can be pretty miserable for Tofu when Chakra is in a bad mood. As for my husbands work we are all going to be travelling to Italy more often soon, I am worried about living Tofu in Chakra’s company while we are not around, even if a cat sitter would be supervising at some point during the day. And as Tofu has very much taken a liking to our whole family, the children have decided that it makes more sense to keep her and find a new loving home for Chakra.
Chakra is a full Maine Coon, but not registered (No paperwork selling to a pet home only). She is a Tortie with white socks, bib and belly. Her ears are tufty and her muzzle pronounced. Chakra weighs almost 5kg and is a big cat, but not as enormous as some Maine Coons are. Her eyes are amber-green, the coat is beautifully multicolour, soft and silky. She hardly loses any hair, despite not being brushed often (not her favourite thing). Chakra will come vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, flea and tick treated. As we realise that having litters is not for everyone, we are planning to neuter Chakra before she joins her new home. Chakra is very well litter trained and also kindly sharps her nails outdoors on tree trunks or other wood objects, so our furniture has never been damaged by her. She has never had any health issues at all and never went to the vet except for regular vaccinations. She has a very healthy grazing diet made of Orijen dry food as well as chicken.
Although our house has always been full of children aged 6-14 and Chakra has always been patient and content to be in the middle of their chaos and games, but I think she would benefit from some quite time and be better suited for a family of adults, or older children, with previous cat experience and no other pets (as her sense of territoriality is very strong) and plenty of external access.
A great home is essential a to give her the love time and attention she deserves. I will not be homing to her to just anyone and definitely not for breeding purposes. Therefore, please ensure you can offer the best home before you contact and introduce yourself with details of:
- Why you are looking for an adult cat
- Who Chakra would be living with
- Accomodation details (external access)
- Previous cat experience
and any other details of the life you would like to offer to Chakra.
