Meet Oreo

Oreo is a black and white short-haired domestic male. He has an unusual sprinkling of white on the back of his 'tuxedo jacket' and faint white stripes down his black tail. He has pink toes and nose and would be better suited as an indoor cat in his forever home. He was rescued at the tender age of 3 weeks motherless from a shelter along with his sister TimTam. At the time he was a very thin, small and very sad looking kitten. It only became obvious the next morning that he was also very sick with the flu. It was touch and go for the next 4ish weeks but he proved to be tougher than he looked and recovered. Partially due to all the handling while being nursed back to health, he is a very affectionate boy who is willing to sit on your lap for hours purring (even falls asleep there sometimes). His favorite is to crawl into your jacket and fall asleep purring. He also is very playful and loves to beat up his sister whenever possible (and vica versa!)

Oreo was adopted on 25 August 2010 after 3 months in foster care
