I originally came to Tenth Life when I was sick on the streets and was found by Carol House, the quick fix pet clinic. Fortunately for me, I was already fixed. They contacted my hooman owners but they did not want me back, due to my intimidating intellect. I am now in a foster home with hoomans that have a true appreciation for me.
I am a very unique kitty because I have a doctoral degree. I also have Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which - as us doctors know - means I can turn anything I eat into a mushy puddle. I am currently eating a special diet of canned and raw food in conjunction with daily medication, which keeps me feeling great and my bowel movements normal. My behavior is that of a gentleman: I am docile and do not antagonize humans or other cats (no experience with dogs). I do not care much for "play," as I am an adult and prefer to act like one. I can be easily startled, especially when in unfamiliar environments.
Some things I hate most are that the hoomans insist on force-feeding my medication rather than allowing me to self-administer. They also try to make me chase feather toys and fake mice as if I was some sort of uncivilized infant - I am a doctor and much too dignified for such behavior.
My best trait is that although I am a doctor, I am still humble, and enjoy the company of hoomans. I will headbutt you and sit with you. I am friendly and good with children. My ideal furever home is a calm and pleasant place. Though I get along with other cats, I prefer not to socialize with them too often, lest their stupidity and barbaric behaviors rub off on me.
Will I be enjoying your company next?
