Thursday's Purrs: Carmen

"Hullo there, pleased to meet you!

My name is Carmen, and as you may have noticed from my picture, I have a very unusual coat. I'm sort of a tortoiseshell/calico combination, with some tuxedo pattern thrown in, as you can see from my white bib and gloves.

So that means I'm dressed for any occasion!"

"My colorful fur also is very soft. So I hope that means that you will enjoy petting me as much as I love being petted. Seriously, I have one of the softest kitty coats you've ever felt!

I was adopted from Wayside once before, but I have been diagnosed with FLUTD (feline lower urinary tract disease). It's not so much a disease as a condition that can be managed with a special diet and a low-stress environment.

The staff and volunteers have noted that since I have returned to Wayside, I have used my litter box consistently. Still, they recommend that my new family give me a least a week in my own room in my new home to adjust."

"Because FLUTD can be aggravated by stress, I would be happiest in a calm, quiet home without other cats, dogs or young children. I request a patient adopter who will give me plenty of time to adjust to my new environment. My previous family said I was a "joy" to have around, and I must admit, I'd totally bond with the family member who feeds me. (I'm a girl who loves a good, tasty dish!)

They said I like to play with toys, and I do! I even like to play all by myself, with the toys in my kennel. I especially love batting my little toy mouse around.

My Felineality is Sidekick. That means I tend to be moderately brave in new situations, and I love nothing more than sticking by my favorite person or people. Having my special person near brings me comfort and confidence.

I do love attention, and I relax when I'm petted. I'll let you know it by making biscuits with my paws and flopping on my side for belly rubs! If you're looking for a sweet kitty to fill your home and heart with beauty and love, come meet me, Carmen!

I'll be waiting for you right here at Wayside.
