You’d expect a big guy to have a big purr wouldn’t you? Well, you won’t be disappointed when you meet me! At 24 pounds, I sound a bit like an idling semi when I get going, and it doesn’t take much! My people adopted me from TALGV when I was a kitten, and all was well until I decided I didn’t want to share them with the other cat. You can tell by my girth that I’ve been getting far too many treats (OK, probably too much food in general!), but now that I’m on a diet, I’m sure I’ll slim down to a more comfortable lap size. I’ll bet yours would fit me fine!
The number one thing my mom said about me is “he lovesEVERYONE!” Also, “He’s absolutely the friendliest cat ever. He especially loves children and is very gentle and understanding of his size when he plays with them. He’s needy, but will sleep with his brother, Muneca, if he can’t have you. He wants to be held all the time and loves tummy rubs and nose scratches.” I lived with my family almost all of my 5½ years, but when the two-year-old developed respiratory issues, my brother and I had to move on. I’m being positive though, and have high hopes I’ll be given the chance to share all my wonderful qualities with another family.
Mom said, “He’s a wonderful, sweet boy who’s shy at first, but warms up quickly, loves to be held, and will sleep on your lap for hours. He likes to lie across your shoulders and purr in your ear. He’s needy, but will sleep with his brother, Tigre, if he can’t have you.” I lived happily with my family almost all of my 5½ years, but when the two-year-old developed respiratory issues, my brother and I had to move on. I’m going to be positive though, and have high hopes that I’ll be given the chance to share all my wonderful qualities with another family (and you’ll let me whisper sweet nothings in your ear!).
When kittens lose the nurturing they get from their moms too early in life, they occasionally develop a need to “nurse” on things (“fuzzies” are most common) and sometimes that turns into a lifelong habit. But in another home, with new and exciting things to occupy their time, sometimes the habit goes away. That’s what happened with me, and although I’m really going to miss my family (including a 10-year-old and two big dogs I loved), my human mom thought that a new outlook on life might be just the ticket to help me change my ways. I’m a charming, friendly but independent 2-year-old girl looking for someone who’ll give me new frontiers to explore.
Who knew that fish tanks weren’t interactive cat TVs? I had a great home for three weeks, but my enthusiasm for getting to know the fish almost resulted in disaster, so I’m back again. My first mom (who had bad allergies) gave me high marks in everything on the personality questionnaire, so whatever your heart’s desire, I’ve got it covered! I love humans (dogs not so much – well, it was a Great Dane that was pretty intimidating), and I’m gentle with kids, mischievous (“keep your cupboards closed as he’ll eat anything”), am a snuggler, and don’t scratch things. I’m a people-, play-, and life-loving boy who’ll wrap my paws around your heart and never let go!
