Finn would need to go to a home where the human energy is Alpha. He cannot go to a home with other cats, or with children under the age of twelve. He needs an experienced Bengal owner who will lead, and be patient with him.
His owner believes he would do well with a larger dog who is not prey-driven, or a pushover. Finn will go after smaller dogs, so please do not apply if you have small dogs.
He has experienced occasional litter box avoidance; his owner believes that this was caused by stress, separation anxiety, and the presence of other cats in a very small space.
Finn has been extensively Vetted. His Veterinarian noted that he is “fractious, powerful and very determined.” They did find a slight heart murmur when he was a kitten, however after seeing a Cardiologist, they informed his owner “Finn currently shows no clinical signs associated with cardiovascular disease and is receiving no cardiac medications.” When there were Guinea Pigs in the house, he developed Asthma. He’s fine when there are no rodents living in the home.
Finn was diagnosed with Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disorder (FLUTD) in 2019. The treatment for this condition is anti-anxiety medication, and reduction of stress in the home. It is entirely possible that the combination of medication and re-homing him to a less stressful environment (with no other cats) could entirely reverse his condition.

Finn is on a Raw food diet. He will need to go to a home that can continue to accommodate this diet.
All of this being said… we’d like you to know that Finn is an AFFECTIONATE boy. And he’s BIG. The photos do not do him justice! Finn loves to squiggle in his Mom’s lap during video conferences, and he loves her kisses and hugs.
Finn does like to be petted, and he’s been known to bossily tap his Mom’s back, should she dare to have her back turned on him (sometimes startling – but he’s just trying to get attention).
Finn sleeps with his Mom at night and even shares her pillow. He loves his cat towers and enjoys commanding the highest spot in the house.
Finn is fiercely possessive of his human. He will need an extremely intelligent, active, savvy owner who wants to make him the center of attention.
Finn is neutered and vaccinated, and comes with his TICA certificate and extensive medical records.
