I know that many of my new feline friends were once shelter kitties who have found their furr-ever homes. So in honor of all the shelter kitties who have found their families, I want to share some information I found on the ASPCA website. To help increase adoption and to place the right cat into the right homes, the ASPCA has come up with a feline personality test. You do not need to be a former shelter kitty to choose a feline-ality!
When it comes to relationships, I'm very level-headed. I don't leap in paws first, if you know what I mean. But give me a little time, and then I'll shower you with purrs, head-butts, and plenty of lap time. In the meantime, you may not see a lot of me, but I'll be thinking a lot of you!
Do you seek affection? I do! If you also like petting, purrs, and paws kneading your lap, I think we might have a LOT in common. I'm looking for "someone who enjoys quiet times and togetherness." Could that someone be you?
I have to say, I'm a busy cat. First, I've got to check out what's happening out the window. Next, I'll see if any closets or cupboards need looking into. And then there are my naps--can't be late for those. I can fit a little socializing into my schedule. Shall we plan on breakfast and dinner? I hope you like kibbles.
Like all sidekicks, I'm just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don't go looking for trouble, but I'm no scaredy-cat, either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.
You're working on the computer? Let me press the keys. Reading the paper? I'll hold the pages down for you. Watching TV? I'll just plop in your lap so you can pet me. I love an orderly household, don't you? I'll help you with all your chores, and I'll help you relax when we're done. You'll wonder how you ever managed without me.
I'm a savvy cat who knows the score. I'm pretty unflappable, too. I don't mind entertaining myself, but a human companion at the other end of the couch and a nice scratch behind the ears always make my day. If you're looking for a resourceful addition to your team, think about signing this Most Valuable Pussycat.
I'm a cat on a mission: PARTY! I love to play and explore and test my limits. I'd love to play with you, but I can make a toy out of anything: pencils, post-it notes, potatoes. If you're looking for some laughs and someone to liven up the party, think about inviting me.
I'm a cat who does everything in a big way. I not only like to be in the middle of things--I like to lead the parade. I'm an adventurous cat, but I'll still make plenty of time to show you my affectionate side. I'm the demonstrative type, you might say. Want a cat who's brimming with confidence? That's me.
I would say that I am the Leader of the Band type. I am very curious and make sure to snoopervise everything!
Oh and too clear up any confusion that I am not the Boss of my household: I am.
You see, while I am working I call my Mommy the Bosslady because she pays the temptations; I cannot open the package myself. But really, I am the boss of the house. If I don't get my way, I give the bitey. The V E T told my Mommy I was just teething and would grow out of this stage, but that is a joke. I will always give the bitey if I don't get my way! Meowhahahaha!
PS- Thank you to Criz Lai for featuring me and Feline Direct in his Catosphere magazine! I am so honored!
