I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
My human fell on hard times and could no longer properly care for me. Because I’m such a spectacular cat and she wanted better for me, she reluctantly gave me up to find a new family who would give me the love and care I deserve. I’m been in a foster home since the first of April and after an adjustment period, I learned to get along with the other kitties there. I had dogs at my previous home and got along well with them and the human kids, too, but had never been around other cats before. I didn’t really “buddy-up” with them but I think it was because there were just so many at my foster home that it was a bit overwhelming. But I did learn to live peacefully among them and would probably do ok in a new home with another kitty – or possibly two. Not only am I drop-dead gorgeous but I’m just as sweet as I am pretty! I adore attention and spending time with my humans is one of my favorite things in the world. I also have a very playful side and like interactive toys that both my human and I can play together (like “chase the string”). While I am a lovely tortoiseshell (tortie) lady, I don’t have a lot of torti-tude but I do give “love bites” just to show how much I love you – or sometimes to tell you that I’ve had enough of whatever it is you’re doing. But my nips are never very hard and certainly not vicious – just enough to get my point across, whatever that point happens to be!
I also need to let you know that I’m a “special needs” kitty. I recently spent 3 days in the kitty hospital because my bowels were blocked. The kitty doctor thinks it’s because I suffered a spinal injury sometime in my life and I now have neurological damage that makes it hard for me to have bowel movements. I was put on a prescription diet (Purina EN) and take two different medicines twice a day (which I take without fuss!) and am doing very, very well! It’s important that my litter box be monitored to make sure I poop every day and that I stay on my special diet. So I would probably do better as an only cat to keep a close eye on my condition – but living with dogs would be ok, as would older children. Just because I’m special needs doesn’t mean I don’t still have a lot of life left or love to give! I will bring a calming, Zen-like quality of peace, fulfillment, and love to your otherwise dreary and routine life if you’ll be my new forever family!
