As you can see in the picture, João is the most handsome tuxedo in the world. His eyes are just the sweetest, and I find myself staring at him for minutes in a row. Besides, he’s very fat (although I try to control his diet), at 10 kg (or 22 pounds), which makes him even more appealing.
João hates strange men! As soon as the door bell rings, he hides in the closet and only comes out hours later, when he is sure there aren’t any strange men around. He is so scared of men that, when he was a baby, he jumped from the balcony (6th floor) because there were some men at the apartment during a renovation. As a result he has titanium pins in one of his legs. He walks just fine, though.
However, he has no problem with women, and he falls in love with men if they start coming to the house often.
He also hates other male cats, and there’s nothing we can do to change that. We have recently rescued a female kitten, Mel, and he adores her, it’s like he’s her father. Adorable. He also loves our senior cat, Lilica, who is 17 years old.
He’s very vocal. Very. He cries at least three time a day (one of it always at 3 a.m). He will only stop crying if you pick him up and hug him for a couple of minutes. So, I guess we can say he’s very huggable. Nevertheless, you have to be careful: his bad leg still hurts, and he may bite you if pet him around that area. And, believe me, he’s a very strong cat and can hurt you. If he’s in a bad mood, I suggest you don’t try to pet him at all. But I do it anyway because he’s gorgeous, fluffy, cute and I absolutely adore him!
Overall Grade: B-
