Hi there, I’m Cookie Monster, and I am 6 months old. I was born in rural Oklahoma, and when I was still a tiny baby, someone dropped me and my brothers and sister off at Animal Control without our mom. Since we weren't big enough to eat food by ourselves, some people picked us up and let us stay at their house, and fed us with bottles until we could eat on our own. The people who were taking care of us had to move to Tampa before we were big enough to go back to the shelter, so they brought us with them so we're Floridians now.
I live with my foster mom and dad, and my kitten sister, Stripes. I would love to go to a home with Stripes, she is my best friend, and I would miss her very much if we weren't together. People think Stripes is pretty cute too.
When my sister and brothers and I were all still tiny, I was the very first one to eat real food instead of a bottle. And boy, did I love to eat it! I was so good at it! I would lay face first in the bowl of food and make very satisfied eating sounds that sounded like the REAL Cookie Monster (OM NOM NOM!!) Because I ate so much more than everyone else, I was much bigger than the other kittens, and I looked like I had a tennis ball in my tummy. Now that everyone is caught up, I'm not the biggest of my siblings anymore; I'm a very delicate and slender girl. But that is how I got the name Cookie Monster (you can call me Cookie for short.) My foster mom thinks I have a very soulful face and a comforting demeanor.
Some of my hobbies include: attempting to leap onto tall objects, hiding under blankets, and taking selfies.
I'm supposed to tell you that I am FIV/FeLK negative, spayed, microchipped, and inoculated up to age at adoption.
If you would like more information about or would like to meet me (and why wouldn’t you?), please contact my foster mom Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
