I’ve had all types of cats over the years, but I’ve never had any cat that had nearly as much character or individuality as Nova does.
He’s very talkative.
He plays in the kitchen sink and bathtub when there water in them.
Toilet bowl lid is always closed!
When taken out for a walk, he is always leading the way.
He plays fetch with just about anything.
His favourite toy is a stuffed Toy snow-leopard.
And always on the move.
He’s either hunting something or running around jumping on the fridge.
Knocking anything that’s on a shelf, onto the ground.
Even pictures off the walls.
Servals are not good climbers, but my god can they jump high.
The highest I have seen Nova jump so far is about 6.5-7 ft ( the height of the fridge)
He doesn’t need to get a running start or anything.
Just loads up at the foot of the fridge and boom, he’s on top of it.
For the first 3 months or so of his life, he did not like being pet.
The breeder told us he was well socialized, bottle fed and handled constantly.
Well when he got home here, he was very wild acting still.
He still loved interaction and playing with everyone, but it took probably a week for me to be able to hold him without him trying to fight to get
He would not...repeat not, cuddle ever.
Now, at night when it’s bedtime he will cuddle, but other than that good luck lol.
