Bio: My name is Goldie. I arrived at the shelter in January 2007. I was scared and shy and overwhelmed at life in a shelter. There were so many cats and so much commotion with visitors and caregivers always coming in. And then I met Cindy. She said, "Come on over here, kiddo" and wrapped her arms around me and started grooming my head and back. It was so comforting to have another being care about me and know how I feel. I immediately fell in love with her.
Cindy is much more outgoing than I am, and she meows at people when they stop by our room. And she has really helped me gain confidence. She's young and energetic and so much fun. Though I have beautiful markings and the softest fur, I often wonder why she is interested in a 6 year old like me.
But Cindy is not the only thing that I like. I like people too. I'm very affectionate and will bury my head into your hand, then purr and knead. If I really trust you I'll roll over and expose my tummy so that you can rub it. And I'll make muffins in the air while I'm upside down.
The problem is that I am easily stressed. When that happens, I get diarrhea so I need a special food and medication. It's hard enough to find a family who wants to take two cats home with them. But when one has to have medication and a quiet household, it's almost impossible to find anyone. I know I am holding Cindy back in getting a home but I can't imagine life without her.
