Hi… my name is Chester (aka Walt Whitman),

Adopted with Diamond 7-19-19

So let’s be honest. Here’s what mom said about me: “Strengths: independent, litter-box trained, sleeps a lot, gets along with dogs. Challenges: hates being held, meows for attention in the middle of the night, nips your hand when he’s done letting you pet or brush him. Other: really likes being brushed on his back and cheeks, but will let you know when he’s had enough.” In other words, the operative word is “independent!” I lived (and happily slept!) with mom and dad for eight years, but both have really severe health problems now, so I’m hoping there’s someone right around the corner who’ll understand my often-typical feline “idiosyncrasies” and give me another chance in a loving home.

PS The last photo in the gallery shows me as a youngster!
