Project Description


Biff is a very special CHINCHILLA PERSIAN. We’re not exactly sure how old he is, but we think he might be around 8 years old; he weighs about five-and-a-half pounds, is neutered and has his claws. He has a classic chinchilla coat and has soulful emerald eyes. Biff came into rescue several months ago in very rough shape. He was found as an unaltered stray and turned over to a shelter in Indiana before making his way into rescue. Once he got here, though, lots of love, good food, heated beds, medicine and couch therapy turned this charming boy around. (He has had a recent dental.) Biff is a one-of-a-kind special boy. We’ve been able to maintain his weight above five pounds for several months now, but he needs extra attention to ensure he’s eating enough. To do that, we give him several food choices daily (he’s a guy who likes options), and his foster mom sits with him while he eats. We originally recommended that Biff be an only, but he’s recently roomed with other cats in foster care and done fine. So we think he’d be okay with one or two laid-back cats given proper introductions. No alpha cats who would pick on him. Biff is asking for a quiet home where someone can lavish him with love and attention. He has a blemish in his left eye that doesn’t require medical care, but it’s quite possible he’s blind in that eye. Like many Persians, Biff needs his eyes cleaned twice daily, but he’s good about it. His coat is growing out of a lion cut and will need regular care. He doesn’t like to be combed, so he will need grooming 2-3 times a year. This boy likes gentle play and to be picked up and loved on occasionally. He loves his butterfly toy and is great with the scratching post. He can be a bit of a curmudgeon, but charmingly so, and once you look into those enchanting green eyes, you’ll be in love forever.
