I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
My name is Kismet. I'm a nice sweet white with brown tabby spots adult girl who was abandoned on the streets of San Jose. During the time that I was left to fend for myself, I was injured, and nearly starved to death! What were my former owners thinking???
My injury has all healed up, but it does mean that I limp badly on one front leg (the left). The vet said there was nothing more to do, and that I would probably always have a limp as it had healed wrong on the streets. I get around just fine, however! I don't seem to have any pain, and I don't even notice the injury. When I sit I often hold that foot up just a bit; it looks sort of cute, really!
I should be an indoor-only cat, as I definitely had no clue how to take care of myself on the street! Also, when I received my FVRCP shot, I broke out in hives therefore, should probably only be vaccinated when extremely necessary. Indoor-only is best for me. A kind person rescued me in late spring 2010, took me in, and made sure I had a full vet checkup. I was already spayed! However, I was not microchipped. The person who rescued me tried hard to find my previous owners, but they never came forward again confirming that I was probably just abandoned. (Of course, I'm now microchipped and ready to go!) The vets guessed my age at maybe around 6, but I am playful enough that I might be a bit younger.
I'm a very sweet girl, and I still love people even though they did dump me on the street. I love to play, both with toys and with people. I'm perfectly litter box trained. I'm friendly, so should be fine with other cats, so long as they are polite about it and not aggressive. (Dogs are unknown.) I like to sit in laps and cuddle with people, but am always a bit startled when being picked up. Perhaps my former people were a bit mean to me. If you play 'rough' with me I will nip, so gentle playing with toys and strings is the best! (and always is, for cats, really). I especially love a little mouse toy, and run around with it all the time! I even 'talk' a bit, both to the toy and to my foster person when he gets home from work.
Wouldn't you consider bringing me home, and showing me all the love that people really are capable of?
