I can imitate an abalone! Put me on your lap and I will demonstrate.
I was turned in as a stray at the shelter, and it was so very scary there. Because I am a beautiful young cat, and would never think of scratching or biting people, someone adopted me. But they brought me back in just a couple of days because I hid under their bed. They don’t understand cats very well, I guess.
The PZF folks took a chance on me, and I showed them my abalone trick. They put me on their laps, and I attach permanently. I love that! Next step was to go to a foster home to see what would happen. A very cat-savvy woman put me in her office room. I loved being on her lap or my safe place under her desk. If she carried me upstairs and stayed with me, I would stay, but if left alone, I would hurry down to my safe place. After only 5 days, I went upstairs all by myself! I also help her with her daily workout as well – check out the photos!
My job in life is to love someone greatly, but I am a “fraidy-cat” for a while until I get to trust that person. If you are in the market for a gentle friend, understand how shy cats respond at first, and are willing to be patient while I grow my courage, I will pay you back a thousand fold in love… and do my abalone trick all day long!
Sincerely and hopefully, Monty
