My name is KittyBoo (sometimes shortened to KB). The first thing you notice about me are my huge green (or are they yellow?) eyes with what looks like black eyeliner. Then you see my thick white coat with splotches of tabby stripes. I’m told that I’m gorgeous but remember “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!” I am a seven-year-old lady who is looking for a new home because my previous humans were moving and couldn’t take me with them. Shortly after I came to AWLMC, folks here could tell I wasn’t feeling so good and a vet confirmed a urinary tract infection and bladder stones. Now, after treatment, I am my healthy self again. I am on a special urinary cat diet for life – once was enough for me to deal with a UTI/stones!
I am looking for a quiet home, I think. I startle easily and hide in new situations but as I get more comfortable, I come out and seek attention. I love treats – my foster mom uses my kibble dry food – and I take them from her hand or chase after them when she tosses them my way. She is trying to teach me to stand on my hind legs for treats and so far, I am humoring her. She thinks I am so cute when I stand up. Me? I just want that treat!
I don’t seem to be a lap cat – maybe. I squirm to get down when my foster mom puts me on her lap. However, if she is lying in bed, I will jump up on the bed and settle myself on her chest for extended periods of total head rubs (I’m addicted) and petting. Maybe I’m a chest cat? I am most interested in this activity in the morning and evening, although I do spend most of my night on the bed.
I need more total head rubs – and I do mean TOTAL! Please come by AWLMC and look into my eyes – what color are they? If we hit it off, let’s go home together.
