Rocky is off to his new home. Maybe someone reading this would be a good fit with Pelé.
She is a pure white, fixed, 8-year-old female. I named her Pelé (after the soccer player) because as a kitten she displayed excellent ball control slapping it left and right as she dribbled across the floor. Also, because the people my wife got her from said she was male. After several months, Pelé began acting strangely. I took him to the vet who diagnosed him to be a female in heat.
Pelé has been an indoor cat all her life, showing very little interest in going out of the house. She’s always been a shy cat. It takes her a while to warm up to strangers but once you make it onto her “nice” list you’re free to enjoy each other’s company.
She likes to sit on my lap while I watch TV and have her face and ears rubbed. Her shyness disappears at bedtime, maybe because her human is horizontal and doesn’t seem so large. That’s when she wants to nuzzle and purr. She will slip her head under my hand to tell me this is a perfect time for fondling and petting.
She doesn’t wear a watch, but she knows the time. She always has dry food available, but each day when I get home from work (about 5:pm) she will sprint past me on the way to the kitchen to “direct” me to her dish – as if she thinks I will wonder, “What’s all the excitement about over there near the cat food dish?” When I arrive to investigate, she gets 1/3 can of tuna. On the days I’m home early, she wants the tuna early. If I give it to her, she’ll forget, or she hopes I forgot because she will direct me to her dish again in an hour or so (it’s worth a try).
We feed her 1/3 can of tuna daily, and all the dry food she wants. Years ago, she broke out in a rash and was losing hair. The vet said she has a condition or disease that causes that if she eats grain-based canned cat food. She didn’t like the grain-free canned cat food she sampled, but she loves tuna, and since we switched to it she has not had a rash. We also love tuna because 1/3 can per meal costs less than canned cat food.
Pelé is available free to a nice person who appreciates cats. As a bonus, she will bring with her the long sought-after secret to eradicating kitty litter dust.
Let me know if you are interested or if you have questions.
