Arrival Story: I never buy pets, I only ever adopt! However, my (then) girlfriend wanted this kitten from the pet store and I reluctantly agreed to get her. From the first day we brought her home, I could tell something was not right about her. I had her assessed by a vet and explained her odd behavior. It turns out that Amara had developmental disabilities and mental health issues. She has feline schizophrenia and suffers from delusions. By normal standards, her behavior is very strange. She sees things that are not there and stares blankly at the walls; amongst other things.
Amara and I have adjusted to one another and I have come to admire her odd behavior. She enjoys laying in my lap or on my chest. For some reason, she also likes getting above my head and sniffing/nibbling at my scalp (?). She does not appreciate new people at all.
Though I did not like Amara very much in her kitten years, her and I have grown very close. Playing fetch a few hours a week tames her wild behavior and helps her mentality. It even helps with the delusions.
Bio: Amara has a SEVERE flea allergy. It developed and got worse as she got older. She has very little fur at this point. She is going to begin steroid treatments soon. The challenge of this is that she is also allergic to all flea pills and flea sprays. So we are restricted to using powders. She has scabs on her neck and bald spots all down her back and tail. She is undergoing full treatment and observation and will be fine. I love her to death for all her quirks and uniqueness.
