Wow, I was on an adventure that suddenly turned bad. I was out running, playing and having fun and before I knew it there was nobody around and I got cold and hungry. I tried so hard to fend for myself but did not do very well. I happened to find a nice family that took me in for the night and then got me to the shelter. I was very dirty and I think I was smelly when I arrived but not anymore. I got cleaned up and have made some friends, which is nice, but my dream is to have a family. I am just the right size, not too big and not too small, I weigh 38 pounds. Wouldn’t I be a great addition to your family! I was so tired and exhausted before a nice person helped me. I was trying to take care of myself and found it quite difficult. Thank goodness I was brought to the shelter. I have rested up and have been waiting for a month to find a family. The good news is I like kids and other cats and I am neutered. I never want to live outside again so you have to promise that I will be a family member and live inside with you. Honestly I just love people and am so happy when someone pets me. I like to play so a few cat toys would just seal the deal. Won’t you consider making me a family member?
