My name is Diesel, and I’m a handsome fellow with silky fur and a natural lion tail. Yes, that poof on the tip is all me, no special grooming required!


In my previous home, I lived in a hoarding situation. My owner hoarded both cats and objects, so now I’m learning about the joys of human affection without having to compete with a multitude of other cats. I’m embracing my new surroundings and reveling in the open space! I adore the company of people and enjoy being around other well-mannered cats.


When I enter a new space, I first like to choose a comfy spot where I can kick back and observe. As my confidence builds, I’ll emerge to check things out, then retire to my chosen spot to relax and absorb. I have a curious nature and like to know what’s happening at all times! I might or might not participate, but I’ll definitely watch. I’m a fan of head butts and have my own way of easing into them. When I’m feeling affectionate, I’ll often roll onto the floor and go belly up while purring like a motor. (General reminder: “Belly up” is not necessarily an open invitation to rub a kitty’s belly!) I love, love, LOVE canned food and treats.


I enjoy being petted but am not comfortable with quick, sudden movements. I’ve not exhibited any signs of being a lap cat, but that might (or might not) change with time. When the time comes for me to transition to a loving household, I’ll need understanding that I’m still learning about life in a healthy environment due to the vastly different circumstances of my past life. I get along with other polite cats, and I’d probably be fine with a calm, small or medium size dog and/or children older than toddler age.


If you think I would be a good fit for your home, please make a reservation to come meet me at the Java Cats Café Meowietta cat lounge! I have been neutered and microchipped and am up to date on all my vaccinations.
