Hi, My name is Cameo and I am a delightful Tortie Exotic Shorthair Persian girl with big round eyes that will look at you adoringly.
Somehow I ended up as a stray in a shelter in Ventura. I was sad, hungry, dirty and very matted. In the first few days I didn't even want to move.
After about a week in the shelter I was rescued by my friends at Helping Persian Cats who had been waiting for me to become available. I'm so thankful for that!!!
I went straight to the vet who took great care of me and also clipped my claws that had painfully grown into my toe pads. I felt immediately better.
After a little recovery time and some much needed TLC I'm a much happier girl now and feel loved again.
I still startle if touched too quickly and I'm a little cautious with new things but if you let me smell your hand I will sniff and nosebutt you and if you will scratch me over my nose we will be friends forever. I'm ok with being picked up and held. I love having my back scratched as well, and I will lick the air like crazy when you do that.
I have met the resident cats and I'm totally fine with them as long as they are not in my face. Then I might hiss.
I have just learned to play with toys, at first I was scared but now I love to chase little wand toys and the laserlight. I use the litterbox like a pro.
I believe I'm a lap kitty in training and will jump up on the bed or couch to hang out with my foster mom.
After some grooming sessions and a nice bath my coat is beautiful and shiny now. I still need to be brushed sometimes so my hair won't mat.
I have very teary eyes that need to be wiped daily and since I don't really have a nose, I sound a little snorty too.
I'm a very sweet girl and will love you lots and be a wonderful companion.
Will you be my new family and give me a loving home purrdy please?
