"Arrr, Mateys! I'm Swatch and I'm ready for Meow Like a Pirate Day! Or to be a swashbuckling pirate this Halloween. All I need is a kitty sized eye patch and I'm good to go.
Some people call me a Special Needs kitty because I have one eye. And I hear whispers that people think I'm less adoptable because of it.
Arr, I say! Make'em walk the plank!
I get around just fine! And when I get time out of my kennel, I jump up and down off the chairs, visit all my buds in their kennels and can spot a cat treat a mile away with my remaining eye.
I'm still living the good life, so no pity party for this little dude, 'k?"
"I'm friendly - which goes without saying for orange tabbies. We are known for our friendly personalities. In fact, a lot of people with very little cat experience are advised to choose one of us as we're very easy-going guys and would be a great practice cat.
Notice I said guys, because there are hardly ever any female orange tabbies. Maybe once in a blue moon, but Mother Nature simply doesn't make them. That's okay though - you have ME!
And see? I'm a very educational fellow to have around, too.
I'm so sweet, loving and playful (Well I'm hardly out of the kitten stage - so I have been known to get a case of the Zoomies once in a while. I'm just TONS of fun!)
I especially like wand toys that I can chase or catch. Do you have any toys like that at your house? I'd love to see 'em. And if the answer is "no", not to worry, we can buy one at the Great Plains gift shop before we go home.
I'm so looking forward to meeting you - thanks for reading about me.
Swatch is available to come home with you and zoom-zoom-zoom around your living room, TODAY! Come meet him at the Independence Campus of Great Plains SPCA.
