I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and declawed.
It's hard to believe I've had such a sad life. My mother and the human we lived with loved me so much. And I was such a beautiful kitten, the man I went to live with paid a lot of money for me. Honestly, I thought I was worth every penny, and so did he.
But after four happy years together, he got very sick and gave me to a friend. Then the friend gave me to another friend. That friend didn't like me (I didn't really like her either), and I never got enough to eat. She never brushed me either, and my beautiful fur got all matted and tangled. Mats hurt, and I was in a lot of pain.
One night, the woman I was living with decided she didn't want me around anymore, so she packed me into a carrier and left me in the drop off box at a "shelter" where they kill cats before they even have a chance to get adopted.
I was so hot in that carrier I could barely breathe, and I was so scarred. The people who work at the shelter shaved off all my matted fur and put me in a cage, where I was even more scared.
Someone rescued me, and I'm safe in the Howard County Cat Club's group home now. At first I was so scared here, I couldn't eat. But the volunteers and the other cats who live here are all being very nice to me, and I'm okay now. I'm just so sad.
If you're looking for a very nice older cat, won't you please consider giving me my fourth and finally forever home. That would make me so happy, and I promise I'd make you happy, too.
I love the Howard County Cat Club's outdoor enclosure, and I'd really like a home where I could go out on the deck with my human and maybe wander around the yard.
ps: One of the volunteers took this picture with her phone. A professional photographer is coming soon to take my picture, and I hope you'll come back and see how beautiful I am.
