Hello my name is Aby, my birthday is Aug 11th 2011 and I am a little under 10 years old. I am spayed and up to date on my shots. I have been very well loved by my owner for my whole life, and the only reason why I need a home is because my owner got very sick and couldn't take care of me. I've only ever known her, she took me in when I was only 5 weeks old! So please be patient with me as it may take me a bit to adjust to a strange home and a new family.
While I am a diabetic kitty, it's no big deal and I'm very easy to give my insulin shots to. I also have to eat a special kibble to keep my kidneys in tiptop shape and take my asthma meds. While that might sound like a lot, it's really not that much work and it only takes a few minutes each day to attend to my medical needs. It's also a great time for us to cuddle and chat about our day.
I am an inside cat and I think the outdoors is pretty scary, so you don't have to worry about me running out. Instead I love it when the sunshine comes inside to me- a nice big window with a sunbeam is the dream! I enjoy being groomed and I'm even good for baths, or going to the spa as the humans call it. The one thing I don't like is having my nails clipped, it is a 2 man job. You might want to provide me with lots of scratchers so I can wear down my nails naturally as much as possible.
I love to snuggle on your lap and I really enjoy scratches behind my ears. Wait till you hear my big beautiful purr! I have lived with other cats before and I was very fond of my sister who passed away before I came to ARTS. Dogs are new to me but I am not so worried about them as long as they are respectful. As far as kids, I don't like how loud and unpredictable they are. I've hissed at them before, but it's only because I was scared. All this to say i'd prefer older kids who are gentle with me or an adult only home.
Pleas apply here if you you have a lap I can curl up on.
