I admit it, I have a thing for plus size felines which is why I can't resist this plump marshmallow of a cat, Melvin.
The first time I met Melvin was at one of our catteries. See, Melvin's a bit of a shy guy so he went to the cattery so more potential adopters could see him.
All the cats were out and running around the little room next to the cattery chasing feather toys and tackling each other. Melvin trotted over to the bench where I was sitting and looked down on all the other cats from his perch. Melvin's only about a year and a half old but he's not into the rough and tumble play like a kitten is. Melvin didn't enjoy all the commotion but he was so sweet. He dug his little head into my side so I could pet him. I could tell he was a big snuggle bug.
What struck me most were his vivid emerald green eyes and his thick plush gray and white fur. He's a quiet, observant cat who likes to feel protected and loved.
His foster says "he loves to sleep on the bed, check out TV on the couch and look at the birds outside the window." Melvin seems to get along well with other kitties so long as they give him some personal space. He would be a good companion for an older cat who wouldn't want a rambunctious kitten around because he's pretty mellow.
