Is he or isn’t he? When Cheela was surrendered to Animal Control, they were told he was a Bengal, though his owners had no papers. Close up, he looks rather like a brown tabby with a bit of white on his muzzle. And yet he has spots on his sides typical of some Bengals we’ve seen, and there’s definitely some muted orange in his coat. A Bengal mix, perhaps?
It’s likely that you’ll hear Cheela before you see him. He’s extremely vocal (another Bengal characteristic), and one of our volunteers says that the only time he stops talking is when he’s in your lap. He seeks out human laps very frequently; he’s gentle and affectionate in addition to being noisy.
Cheela lives in our lobby, where he has already garnered a large number of fans. We are hoping his perfect match will soon come through our front door.
