Hi-ya! I was named 'Ninja' because I'm a sneaky black cat, and I can hide in the shadows when necessary. I was about 7 weeks old when I was adopted from N.O.A.H. in Stanwood, WA. While I let mommy and daddy think they chose me, I chose them and used the ninja technique of climbing on their shoulders and meowing until they gave in and took me home.
I'm a great kitty - I've always known my way around a litterbox, I love to snuggle people (even if I don't know them), and once I discovered that Ninjas are inherently superior to Pirates, I taught my adoptive brother Pirate to share his food.
If you come by, don't be surprised if I'm rubbing up against your leg as soon as you walk through the door, or perhaps just chilling in a box or a sink. Just don't try to photograph me - like a true ninja, I tend to look hidden, even in plain sight.
Description: Ninja is a friendly and social cat who warms up quickly to strangers. We think he was born in September 2005, and he joined our family at the approximate age of 7 weeks. Ninja enjoys exploring and hiding, and can often be found at the highest vantage point that he can physically get to. In fact, we decided to bring him home from the NOAH Shelter in Stanwood, WA, along with Pirate, because he perched on our shoulders so adorably!
Health & Grooming Ninja was already neutered by the shelter when we adopted him. Since he is an indoor-only cat (one of the conditions of the adoption contract), fleas and ticks are not an issue. We brush and pet Ninja often, and keep his nails trimmed as necessary. He is up to date on all his vaccinations, and has received regular care since adoption from Helping Hands Veterinary Clinic in Lynnwood, WA.
General Care We try to act responsibly regarding all of our pets. We have a self-cleaning litterbox, which minimizes odor by enclosing waste in a receptacle, and we use a natural and flushable litter for ease of disposal. Our cats are largely self-sufficient and have plenty of toys (and each other) to keep themselves occupied. We've been extremely lucky - our spoiling has paid off and our cats love to scratch their cat tree (and not our furniture!).
