My last year has been a traumatic one. My previous owner moved away and left me behind on the street to fend for myself. I don't understand why she would have done that, but I managed with my good looks and charm and the neighbors fed me while I was "on the outside". Some nice people moved into the neighborhood recently, and we became friends right away. I'm very charming and affectionate, so it was hard for them to resist me. :)

The nice new people felt terrible that someone would be so mean to me, leaving me to survive on my own. The people have another cat, an older girl named Mama-Kitty. They were concerned about how we might get along, so they fed me outside for a couple of months. Inevitably when the weather turned cold, the nice people decided I shouldn't be outside anymore and they took me to the vet for my shots and check up and took me in. They gave me my own room with everything I could ever want - a bed, an inside "bathroom", food, treats, toys, you name it! Eventually, however, I had to meet my new "sister". I didn't want to break it to the people, but I despise other cats. They just make me angry and I react violently (very unlike my usual fantastic personality!).

I gave it a chance though, because I really like the nice people. The first meetings were a little rocky, but they only got worse. Mama-Kitty is afraid of me, and that makes me even meaner to her.

So now the nice people are looking for a loving home for me. As much as they hate to see me go somewhere else (because they are crazy about me), they know it is the best for everyone involved. I need to be the one and only cat, although I might be ok with a dog. Could you be the one to be my forever home?
