Allow us to introduce the most handsome tri-pod (3 legged kitty) around – DING! Due to an injury that went untreated prior to coming into the care of the RHSPCA, Ding has had one of his front legs amputated. But, don’t worry, this guy gets around like an olimpian!
Ding is pretty timid at first, and needs to take some quiet time to get comfortable with new people, animals, and places. He loves napping in cave beds, especially while he’s adjusting to a new situation. He does have a curious side, and once he has an emotional support human, he enjoys exploring new environments with them by his side. Overall, Ding is a pretty low-key tripod, spending his days lounging in cat trees, or various beds, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t get the occasional bout of the zoomies. He likes to play with balls, catnip mice, and likes chewing on sticks, but the toy that makes him really come alive is the laser pointer – or even a glint of light reflected off a surface in an interesting way. If it’s a moving light, Ding is obsessed with it. Ding is pretty food motivated, so you’ll have no trouble earning his trust with things like treats and wet food. He is reserved at first, but loves to snuggle with his human, and will happily snooze the day away in your lap if you let him. He loves head pets and chin scritches, and will flop over in appreciation. He even tolerates the occasional belly rub.
