Kiwi is a very affectionate and loving cat with a lot of energy. He needs to go to a home that will allow him to go outside, whether he be an indoor/outdoor cat or maybe even only outdoor.  He has lived indoors all his life and has only been outside on a harness.  He needs a lot of stimulation to keep him from getting bored, so only going outside for an hour a day has not been enough for him.

He has a lot of personality and I would adopt him in heartbeat if I could.  Unlike most cats, he prefers to be held like a baby, and if you are holding him any other way he will find a way to flip over so you can hold him like a baby.  Then he'll just go limp in your arms and close his eyes. He absoultely love belly rubs as well.  He'll jump up on the couch next to you and roll right on his back.  Nothing chills him our more than a good belly rub.

Kiwi is the kind of cat that is kind of like owning a dog.  He'll follow you around house, he's very food motivated, he'll jump up on the couch when you pat your hand for him to come sit next to you, and he'll go for walks on a harness.  He's kind of like the pitbull of cats, because he is solid muscle and weights a lot more than you'd think.  Kiwi previously lived with dogs and should be able to adjust if you currently have one or plan to get one in the future.  Kiwi is a fairly dominent cat, so if he is living with other cats he probably should be the dominent one.  He does enjoy playing with other cats though, so he would probably be happiest if he had a least one other kitty companion.  I don't believe he has lived with children, but he is very gentle and would probably do well in a busy household with kids.
