Tabby and White

I like to snuggle up with other kitties, push papers off of desks and lie down, watch the beta fish swim, and sit in patches of sunlight. I also love catnip - I eat it and roll around in it!

Loud noises scare me, and so do new people. And the ferrets, jeez are they annoying!

Favorite Toy:
The cat dancer!

Favorite Nap Spot:
I like to sleep on the bed, on the couch, in the laundry, on the windowsill, and on the desk.

Favorite Food:
Wysong Vitality (previously fed Purina OM until weight loss goal accomplished)

Though I am quite large, I am very good at hiding when I get scared. Good luck trying to find me!


Arrival Story:
The only humans I had ever known decided to surrender me to a high-kill animal shelter in 2003. I was so scared, I didn't know what to do. I had never left my home before. And all of a sudden I was in an overcrowded, smelly, sad place with a lot of other kitties. Little kids would poke at me through my cage bars and make loud noises that scared me. I had nowhere to hide, because my cage was no bigger than a cat carrier. So I burrowed my head under my litterbox in an attempt to hide. I was so scared. After the shelter closed at night, there was one human who seemed to like me. She spoke softly to me and sat outside my cage every evening, waiting to see if I would approach her on my own. After about a week, I finally decided to trust her. I slowly waddled my way to the front of my very small cage, and nuzzled into her hand. I looked into her eyes and knew she was the one - the one who would save me. I was in the shelter for four weeks total. One day, before she came in to work, another human took me into a room that smelled like death and fear. I was so scared, I clawed at anything and everything - trying to escape. I was placed in an even smaller cage, barely big enough for me to turn around in. I had no idea what was going on. A couple hours later, "she" entered the room with a frantic look on her face. She saw me and broke into tears, scooping me out of the cage and cuddling me before placing me in a large carrier. She placed me beside her desk and talked softly to me while she worked, singing me a little song now and then. That evening, I didn't get put back in a cage at the shelter. "She" took me out the door of the shelter and into her heart & home forever. She became my guardian!

I was 25 pounds when my guardian took me home from the shelter, and my last weigh-in was ~12 pounds!
