Well, mommy has gone and done it again. Yes, you guessed it. We have yet another kitty.
Mommy visits friends from her old neighborhood to give steroid injections to their kitty who has Eosinophilic Granuloma Syndrome. Well, actually her friend Amanda has been doing it because mommy still can’t move very fast after her surgery and you’ve got to be quick with this cat! Anyway, when Amanda went on Thursday, they told her about a cat that used to live a few houses down. He is totally declawed senior kitty and now his humans have moved and left him behind. Mommy’s friends tried to take him in but their indoor cat fought with him, so now he was camping on their doorstep, the only safe place he knew. Well, you know that mommy’s heart broke for the poor thing. How can humans be so heartless?
Mommy thought about it for a few hours and decided that she just had to give this cat a home, so yesterday on her way back from the vet with the pugs, she went by and picked him up. She put him in the room with Zabi the tripod kitty, at whom he proceeded to hiss and growl. The poor guy is scared and confused, with new humans, new cats and a new place. He purrs when mommy pets him but he’s still hissing at Zabi and any cat that he smells on the other side of the door. He looks so dejected, don’t you think?
Mommy named him Surfeit because, she says, she now has so many of us. ( I didn’t go to college like mommy did, so I had to look it up. “Surfeit” means “an excessive amount.”)
So that’s the story of my new fursib. We are hoping that it won’t be too long before he feels more at home here and I can show you a photo with a happier expression. He’s really a handsome guy with neat green eyes.
