Hello! My name is Obelix, nice to meet ya! I have been a very loved kitty my whole life and I came to ARTS when my owner could no longer keep me. I am a very handsome and relatively healthy old gentleman. I suffer from a bit of arthritis in my shoulders and can be a little stiff right after I wake up– while it doesn’t bother me too much now it is likely that I will need some pain management in my future. I also have hyperthyroidism. I REALLY don’t like the weird little pink pills that the humans tried to give me, but I don’t mind the ear gel that they are using to treat my condition with instead. It’s easy for me, and they said its not too expensive. I will need it for the rest of my life.
What do I like, you ask? Well, I like affection – as long as it’s on my terms and not yours. I’ll let you know when I’d like some attention, and when I don’t. Napping is THE BEST, and so is being brushed. I have beautiful long hair and I take it’s condition pretty seriously, so please be prepared to groom me lots. I’m talkative and will tell you all sorts of stories as long as you are willing to listen. I’ll be a great companion and offer a lot of company.
I take a long time to warm up to other cats, and while I will tolerate them I’ll likely be happiest on my own or at least somewhere that I can have my own space. Dogs don’t bother me too much as long as they stay out of my way. Please do not pick me up, that’s a no go. I totally understand that I am incredibly handsome and that you will want to pick me up and squeeze me (I mean…look at me, I get it) but please don’t. It’s best for both of us.
