Laying in the sun, snuggling with her two people, playing with ribbons, chattering away, and stealing bits of chicken for dinner.
She hates bellyrubs, music, other animals, and bathrooms. She's also afraid of grass.
Ribbons, especially if they're curled. She's also obsessed with a plush fish on a string that we play with all the time.
Favorite Nap Spot:
In Geoff's lap or on either of our stomachs when we go to bed. She loves to lay on blankets, but only if they're smoothed out for her. She has her own chair by the livingroom window, but if it's sunny, she'll conk out right on the floor in a sunbeam.
Chloe has a very sensitive, small stomach. I give her the gravy from wet food, dry cat food, and occasionally a bit of baked chicken that she loves.
She makes my heart melt, she can meow what sounds like "hello," and she's adorable.
I (Tania) adopted Chloe in the critical/ICU section of my local ADOPT shelter in Naperville, IL. They found her in a garbage can in Chicago and thought she was dead at first. She had almost no fur (and the fur that she did have was coarse and damaged) and was severely underweight and malnourished. I loved her the second I saw her. I took her home and nursed her back to health. She is still very tiny (and always will be since her growth was stunted from malnourishment), but she is much happier & healthier now. The only real 'issue' she continues to have is separation anxiety, so I try not to leave her home alone very often, and never for long periods of time. She is a little angel in my life... I think we saved each other. I found her at a moment in my life when I desperately needed a great friend, and she is the best :).
I've gotten married and Chloe and I moved in with my husband, Geoff, to Ontario, Canada :). Chloe adores Geoff, and vice versa. We're a happy lil family. I'm so pleased at how Chloe has really blossomed in her own, quiet home (away from my brother's dog and other cats). She has gained a couple healthy pounds and really thrives on being the center of attention.
Chloe is a very talkative little thing. For such a small animal, she is VERY loud. I've never been around an animal so lively, vocal, and full of expression as Chloe. She's so possessive of Geoff and I, and I suppose that we spoil her :) but she's our baby.

Wow, it has been a long time since I've been on catster.com. A lot has changed for Chloe and I. I'm still sickly every once in a while, but Chloe and I are doing so much better.
I finally got engaged to and moved in with Geoff, a man I've been dating off and on for three years. Chloe *hated* the nine hour drive from Illinois to our new home in Ontario, but she's been doing so much better in this new environment (away from louder family members, my brother's crazy pit bull and Lewis bullying her). She truly seems completely comfortable for the first time in her life. I think that she is the sort of cat that thrives best in a household where she is the only 'pet' and the only baby. This is her space, Geoff and I are her people, and she knows it and doesn't have to fight for attention or territory.
My biggest happiness is that she has actually gained over 2 pounds, finally! After years of struggling and keeping her around 5 to 5 1/2 pounds, she is finally up to a bit over 7 pounds. She looks so healthy.
Actually, perhaps my biggest happiness is that she actually approves of my fiance. It was always a big joke with my family that Chloe isn't a 'lap kitty,' and wouldn't sleep on anyone's lap... she sleeps on my fiance's lap. They are so cute together. I've nicknamed Geoff "The Cat Bed."
Moving has done a world of good for all of us :)
We're quite the happy little family... Chloe, Geoff, and I. We've talked about getting pet fish, which I think Chloe would really enjoy watching, so we might have new additions to the family in the future.

I adopted Chloe from the ICU center of our local ADOPT shelter in Naperville, IL in the winter of 2003. After being on the streets of Chicago for much of her young life, Chloe was severely underweight, balding, and in need of some love.
When I walked into ADOPT and saw Chloe, my heart melted. She had the most vibrant blue eyes that I'd ever seen in my life. She let out a weak, scratchy mew when she saw me and nuzzled her cage bars. I desperately wanted her, and so the ADOPT volunteers let me take Chloe home early and nurse her back to health on my own.
Chloe was not the shrinking violet that I expected her to be. She followed me curiously all over our house and with time, became a very loud and demanding companion. Soon we were inseparable. She was always there for me, even moreso on days when I was upset or sick.
Whenever I'm sad, all I have to do is look at Chloe and I instantly feel better. I feel happiest whenever I can tell that she is really happy or whenever she is excited about something. We're good for each other, because we're always trying to make the other happy.
I wouldn't give up Chloe for anything in the world. She's a true blessing in my life, a real life angel...
