Hi I'm Oreo! I wanted to swing by and introduce myself to everyone with the hope that a sweet human will give me a second glance! I'm not very happy here in a cage surrounded by unfamiliar faces and noises-I hope someone can help me!
New Video with my friend Jamie!
I kinda have a colorful past- I first arrived at the shelter in 2015 as a stray kitty that nobody claimed! I was roaming the mean streets of Detroit Lakes when the law caught up with me. Eventually I was adopted by a wonderful person but her home proved to be a bit much for me and I had to come back. See I'm kinda like an awkward child with my social skills- probably because I didn't grow up with a mom or siblings to teach me appropriate play techniques. Sometimes I meet a new kitty who I want to be friends with and we start to hit it off but then I get insecure and decide I need to be the boss of my new friend. Pretty soon my new friend decides I'm too bossy and gives me the paw, which gets my tuxedo undies in a bunch and I feel I have to retaliate. I don't mean to be a bully! I just don't know any other way. I also get overstimulated easily with petting but I will get up and walk away when I need a break. There are also times when I see your hand or arm and think "the hunt is on! New toy!" but all of this can be worked on in a calm home with appropriate wand toys and stuff. The ladies at the shelter promise to share all secrets! Sometimes I roll over and show you my tummy...I have good sides too!
I guess I better tell you what my dream home would look like! I would be super duper happy if I could be the only pet and if you didn't have any small children. I kinda have the same bossy issues with them- they make me insecure sometimes with how fast they move!
I really am a good boy...I just have some quirks. Doesn't everybody?
I am available for adoption at The Marshmallow Foundation in Detroit Lakes, MN. I am a neutered male, shorthaired tuxedo babe, always dressed to impress!
I am almost 2 years old (my birthday is at the end of September!) and I enjoy playing with all sorts of toys and LOVE a cat perch next to a window!
Here's a link to my page! Please don't let me be forgotten!
