Mako's Sponsorship Page

Mako has many Turkish Van cat traits; he’s social, verbal, loves his scratching post, and wants to be in the center of family activities (cooking, TV). He’s curious and playful and can occupy himself with toys. Mako acts like a 15 pound kitten when he starts to play sometimes! Not a lap cat, but will lay beside you, on the cushion above you, or follow you around. When he’s not napping, he’s on the move or watching you from a comfy perch. Mako does well with other cats and dogs, although generally being aloof to them. He is most often a pretty relaxed kitty, but when he gets really excited/playful he will sometimes nip at his people. So we don't think that he is well suited for a home with small children.

It is important that he be an indoor cat due to his history of skin cancer. Both of his ears had to be cropped due to skin cancer, which gives him his adorable, teddy bear appearance. Thankfully, he does not have any lingering issues or treatment needed for his ears and is cancer free.

Mako seems to have arthritis in one of his front legs. He is currently on a low dose of medication that he takes every other day and will likely have to continue for the foreseeable future. He is easy to medicate - his foster mom just puts it on a scoop of can food.
