Hi! I’m Patty. I’m a beautiful and somewhat large 11 year-old brown tabby. I have been with my foster mom since Jan 2021, after sadly losing my beloved older person. My foster mom and I are very attached to each other now, but I also look forward to finding my new person(s) so that my foster mom can keep saving cats like me! I'm a friendly girl and I like to greet visitors who come to the house.
I've had a rough go of it, finding out that I have diabetes shortly after joining my foster mom. it has taken quite a while to get this under control, but i'm now feeling much better, and am even used to getting the pesky needles twice a day. Just as a point of interest, I also have a mild case of asthma, which you wouldn't even notice except that I might sneeze once or twice a day. "Schnoozles" my foster mom calls them, because they are so cute.
I like to follow my foster mom around like a shadow, just to keep an eye on her and make sure I know what she's up to. I LOVE helping her with things, so I lie on her desk between the keyboard and monitor helping her work from home. I also help her with crossword puzzles by lying right across the page she's working on. It's so much fun and she obviously loves it!
I am sweet and cuddly- in my terms. I must get pets and chin rubs first thing in the morning, during the evening while you read or watch movies, at bedtime, as well as other random times of my choosing. I obviously deserve all the skritches.
I am very adept at non-verbal communication, so you will hardly ever hear my voice except if I'm really hungry or you accidentally step on me. I have been known to get a bit snarky and bite if someone annoys me, but once we get to know each other and you learn my queues, it's not really an issue. You just have to respect my boundaries.
I am declawed so I won't scratch up your furniture. I am an indoor cat but I do enjoy spending time out on the balcony soaking up the sun and watching the birds with my foster mom. Oh, and I didn't learn to cover my poo, so if you needed to know my one flaw- there's that. All things considered though, I'm a pretty wonderful cat and my foster mom will attest to that! She will be sad to see me go, but she's also excited to see me off on my new adventure.
For a very long time I required an only pet home, but recently I was introduced to another cat and it has gone fairly well. If you have a very chill other pet and can be committed to a long and slooooow introduction, I should be fine. Please no busy households though.
I’m looking forward to finding my forever home and not having to move around any more. If you can help with that, please apply here!
