We are saddened to announce the passing of our darling Termite Chausie. Termite had been in slow renal failure for some time; unfortunately, he took a sharp turn for the worse this week. Nonetheless, he passed away gently, comfortably, and peacefully on Sept. 27, 2017.
Our only male chausie, Termite, was a friendly guy who likes people and relishes attention from his caregivers. When he saw someone approaching, he would often make a typical jungle cat call that sounds like “wow.” Termite also mimicked sounds like “whoa,” “pow,” and “oh.” He was charismatic by nature and spent quite a bit of time posturing and poofing out his coat to show how big and tough he is. Miss Buggy Bengal Cat, his roommate, was rarely impressed...and neither were Termite’s sisters, Calamity and Tessa, who lived next door. Termite arrived in 2000, after earning his name at another location where he chewed through a wooden table leg and collapsed the whole thing!.
