Chesi and Mika are a young bonded pair of beautiful Cheetoh cats. Cheetoh cats are a newer breed of cat (2003), created by a Breeder who bred Ocicats (domestic cats) with Bengal cats (also recognized as domestic cats).
Chesi is a beautiful gold and black Cheetoh and she is only 1 year old. Her companion Mika is silver and black, and she is just 6 months old.
Chesi and Mika are loving, active, high energy girls. They are extremely bonded so they cannot be separated.
These beautiful girls are in search of a forever home who will have all of the energy, time, and attention to devote to them. They do not have litter box issues or any behavioral issues. Due to circumstances outside of the owner’s control (long hours at work and other challenges), they know that these ladies would have a better life in a home that would have more time to play with and interact with them.
Chesi and Mika have never been around children, or dogs. They were around other cats at the cattery but we’re not sure if they would do well with another cat – perhaps a mellow cat could work.
Personality-wise, Mika is the braver of the two. She’s never met a stranger! Chesi on the other hand, will hide when a stranger comes over, that is until she feels comfortable enough to come out and say hello. They both love to be near their humans, and they truly are loving companions.
They are both vocal – not annoyingly so – but vocal enough to let their people know what they need and when they need it! Mika’s middle name is “Tin Tin” because she actually squeaks when she talks! So adorable. They will cuddle with their humans when they are tired, but they do not want to be picked up or held. They both enjoy being on a leash and harness, and really love to explore outside (supervised of course) for about 1/2 an hour.
Chesi and Mika are very active cats who love high places, banking off the hallway wall, chasing each other like crazies and then settling down for a nap together. They love to groom each other and cuddle up in a perch, and even play under the covers. Chesi used to play fetch but now that she has a sister, she’s given the reins to Mika who absolutely loves to play fetch.
They do like to sleep in their owner’s room, but not on the bed. They actually like to sleep under the bed or in a recliner chair. They are super respectful of sleep time for the humans; they will not disrupt a good night’s sleep.
Chesi in particular suffers from separation anxiety. She needs a home where there will not be frequent trips out of town. When her owners went out of town for a week, she would not come out from under the bed until the pet sitter left. She would eat and then go straight back under the bed. If you plan on traveling, Chesi and Mika are not a good fit for you.
In addition, Chesi has experienced some bouts of nausea and vomiting. She has been treated by their Veterinarian for what is likely food allergies / Irritable Bowel Syndrome (common in cats). She has been put on a Prescription diet by the Vet and she is now stabilized. Mika is eating the same, as it’s hard to feed cats differently. The diet they are on is Royal Canin HP (Hydrolized Protein) dry food and Gastroenterology (high calorie) wet food. They also love Bonita flakes (Catmandoo) as a treat. They go CRAZY for Tuna pate by Core – their owner says it’s their favorite thing on Earth! They will do whatever you want them to do, if they get their Tuna pate! Going forward we do believe that Chesi and Mika could do well on a Raw food diet. Perhaps they can be transitioned slowly off of the prescription diet.
Both of the girls love their water fountain, cat trees, and play tunnels. They are accustomed to using three Modkat flip top boxes with feline pine pellets (Mika has a habit of rolling in Clay litter – so the Clay litter had to go!).
Chesi and Mika are both spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. It should be noted that Mika had an extreme reaction after being vaccinated with a modified live vaccine during her spay procedure. She developed a very high fever and was hospitalized for nearly four days. The breeder states that Cheetoh’s should never be given the live vaccinations – only killed. We agree. Going forward neither of them should be vaccinated again, as they should only be indoor cats.
We are looking for a family for Chesi and Mika who can handle their high energy and dietary needs. They need a family who will give them lots of time, attention, and love.
