Enoch is endowed with more than his fair share of good looks. He is an attention-getter from the start, with medium-length hair that may develop to long hair, full at the chest and around the chin (the 'ruff' area), ending in a thick, fluffy, fox-like tail, and topped with tufted and alert ears. One look into his round green-gold eyes, and it's clear that this boy has a lot more going on in his head than the average cat. His large paws and current body style predict that Enoch will grow to be medium to large, muscular and well-proportioned, elegant yet solidly built. This lively cat may turn your life upside-down. Curious and playful, he has the mental agility and dexterity to open doors and find the smallest places to explore. He has a tendency for sudden surges of energy throughout the day, when he will rush around, tackle his kitty friends, bring you toys and insist you enjoy playtime with him. When you do, he will reward you with acrobatic leaps in the air and impressive 'hunting' antics. Enoch wakes each day with an agenda: eat, rest, bounce around, make a puddle trying to cover his food bowl, disturb his furry friends' peace (unless ideally, they can match his energy and play drive), and show you his adoration. He has a mind of his own, so do not expect immediate obedience. He thrives on attention and affection from humans though, so he can be trained to do things that reward him with your pleasure or social interaction. Positive reinforcement is the key to keeping Enoch (and therefore all in the household) happy. He will stick close without smothering you. If he notices you working in the kitchen, he will likely jump up to see what he can do to help out. He wants to share every aspect of your life. Though Enoch is generally healthy and vigorous, he has a chronic problem with eye watering/tearing. He has been treated with numerous medical therapies, but the problem persists. He lives with several other cats, and the condition does not appear to be contagious, as the others in his foster home are free of tearing. His eyes can be wiped daily with a cotton ball or soft cloth and water, a saline solution, or a pet product like Angel Eyes. His ample coat does not mat, but daily grooming will help you bond with him and prevent hairballs. His reaction to dogs is unknown, but he would probably enjoy animal companions of any type. We expect that Enoch would make an excellent companion for children of any age, as long as they enjoy playing with their pets, a lot! If you are looking for companionship with a healthy dose of excitement in your life, Enoch is the kitty for you!
