"Hullo folks, I'm Blossom, the rare orange girlcat! Did you know most orange moggies are of the male persuasion?
Although some humans may call me a bit ornery, I'm really a very sweet and fun-loving girl -- with a healthy side of catitude.
My loves are playing, sun bathing and long afternoon naps.
What are yours?
I love to be with people, and let me tell you, those head and neck scritches totally rock!"
"My dislikes are being picked up and taking my medicine, (well, duh, what kitty would like that, I ask you?).
I've been told I need the stuff twice a day, though, for a delicate tummy.
"I've been called a 'chatty cathy' (whatver THAT is). I am pretty talkative and would love to chat you up if you're willing to chat.
I'm an Independent Girlcat of Means, and I take my role of House Investigator very seriously.
When not working, I do love a good round of Red Dot.
Being a Proper Ladycat and all, I'm a diligent kitty post scratcher -- and I never scratch the furniture.
I get along well with dogs, but prefer to be the only cat of the house.
In exchange for your love, I promise cuddle up with you at night and be a loyal companion. I desperately want a home of my own and a human who adores me and accepts me for who I am. (Which if you ask my foster parents, is a pretty darn great!)
Won't you come meet me and see how we get along? I'll bet we'd get on famously!
My name is Punkin, and the volunteers over here tell me I'm the epitome of a friendly cat. I do love me some human interaction, if I do say so myself!"
"I have to admit, I'm mostly a low-energy kind of a girl, but I completely endorse playtime -- as long as it doesn't require too much exertion. Purrsonally, I think iPad games are da bomb. And red dots? Totally pawesome. If you meet with my approval, I'll even sit on your lap while you brush me!"
"And oh - by the way - any accusations of me scrounging for food in other cats' kennels are completely unjustified *delicate burp*. (wait, what do you mean by "she ate the evidence"?!?)
I've been told I'm 'plump, pretty, and happy' but I prefer to think of it as there's just more of me to love!
"Hello, and thanks for taking a moment to hear my story.
My name is Penny. I'm a torbie girl (that's a tortoiseshell/tabby combination) and folks say I got my name from the beautiful coppery spots in my luxurious coat.
I came to Wayside because my previous person passed away.
It's sad, and a bit daunting, to be honest -- starting over at the age of 10. But that's just middle age for a cat."
"I'm thankful to have a second chance to start a wonderful new life with a very special someone. I do tend to be shy at first, but if you approach slowly and gently, I warm up pretty quickly. And even though I am shy and cautious, I do love people very much.
It might take some time to get to know me, but trust me, I am worth it. I'm really a big cuddle bug at heart, and would love to snuggle next to you. I love being brushed, and will purr like a little motor boat for you!"
"I'd love to go to a home with a nice window that will let me observe all of the interesting things that the outdoors has to offer. (I've been known to binge-watch the BirdTv channel here at Wayside *embarrassed look*)
I don't mind being picked up sometimes and i have also done well coexisting with other feline friends. Let's have our first conversation today, at Wayside!?
"Pleased to meet you! I'm Darla, a very pretty torbie (tabby/tortoiseshell) girl with just about the most gorgeous green eyes you've ever seen.
I was surrendered to Wayside because someone in my previous family had allergies. I also came to Wayside with my previous housemate, Dixie. We can be adopted together or separately. As you can imagine, I like other cats (Dixie's one, after all!)."
"I lived with dogs and kids in my old home, too, and co-existed with them, sort of. My previous family describes me as an independent cat who loves to cuddle at night.
Here at Wayside, people say I'm a shy kitty who does enjoy attention once I feel comfortable. I prefer people who are calm and patient. So I probably would be happier in a home that's more like a library than a carnival.
At age 8 I'm right in my prime, ready to be a loving, loyal, steadfast companion. I can't wait to meet you!
