–THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SWEETIE, PLEASE CONTACT KATHLEEN AT THE EMAIL/PHONE NUMBER BELOW–

Sweetie is a 3-4 year old spayed, snuggly lovebug with an unknown past.  She recently saw a vet who states that, aside from her obesity, she is in very good health.  She is also current on her vaccinations.  Paperwork and tags provided. She is as clean as a whistle but was not one bit happy about the full bath she got when she was rescued (oh, the howls!).  The poor girl is so big she had a hard time cleaning herself so needed a little help.  She seems very pleased with the results. She has been in my home for two weeks after I rescued her from an elderly neighbor who recently had a stroke and can no longer care for a pet.  Apparently, Sweetie went to her home only four months ago from a craigslist ad.

Here are my observations of her:

Sweetie is a curious, playful girl and loves to sit in laps.  I don’t think she could get too much brushing (even on her belly) and appreciates chin scratches since it’s sometimes difficult for her to reach her head with her back legs.

We found a food she likes and she likes it A LOT.  She prefers to have mini meals through the day but I’ve been trying to get her accustomed to eating twice a day.

She most definitely should be an indoor only kitty.  Not only because of her size (and therefore lack of speed!), but her darling pink toes make me believe she always has been.

She has immediately approached and said, “hello” to every visitor to my home.  She is exceedingly social and grabs the heartstrings of those who meet her.

I’ve restricted her play while she is at this weight, but think if it were up to her, she’d have a never ending game of ‘catch the bumble bee’ (wand toy).  There’s also a favored mouse she likes to ‘stalk’.  She also enjoys her naps and quiet time sitting on window sills and watching the world go by.  She doesn’t hesitate to jump up and down on beds, chairs, sills etc., but the vet advises limiting the jumps down as this is hard on her joints until she reaches her ideal size.

I hope she finds a FOREVER home that will have plenty of time for attention, love and play for her.  She so deserves this.

P.S.  She has beautiful green eyes : )
