Sometime in Nahum's first year of life, he was a stray living on the street with Willow. He was rescued by Oasis for Animals, a local rescue group. We adopted him on May 16, 2009 at an adoption event at a nearby Petsmart.

Nahum is a large fluffy cat. He measures 13 inches tall and 32 inches from nose to end of tail. He weighs about 16 pounds. His coat is a mixture of browns - from light to very dark. He has long fluffy fur that is quite soft and green eyes. His appearance most resembles a Maine Coon.

Nahum can play very gently as he did with Rose when she was a kitten and super intensely as he does with Theo when they tussle. He accepts being picked up and carried around, although it's not his favorite thing. He is starting to enjoy hanging out in my lap more frequently, which is delightful. He has a very soft, gentle purr.
