Looking For A Home For Pee-Wee
Pee-Wee showed up on our back porch in late August, out of nowhere, as friendly as if she'd been our cat all her life.
We're pretty sure she's a hypo-allergenic Siberian Black Smoke. She has long, flowing black hair, a gray collar, and gorgeous green eyes. Her body just seemed a little small for her outsized personality, so we called her Pee-Wee. The name stuck.
She lived outside, and we fed her every day. She slept in a cozy covered cat box that we put outside for her. But she didn't seem like a real outdoor cat -- she wanted desperately to be inside the house. So we'd let her in for a few minutes and take great delight in watching her explore. Pee-Wee's Playhouse, as it were.
Chicho, our male indoor cat, even tolerated Pee-Wee's shenanigans. She's very playful. We assume she was a house kitten but got lost or tossed outside at some point.
We took her to the vet and had her checked out. He thought she was probably around 7 months old or so. She was given the proper vaccinations. We scheduled her for neutering, which happened to coincide with the cold snap that we've been experiencing for the past month or so. We kept her inside after that, during her recuperation. A big patch of her fur was shaved for the operation, and we didn't want to expose her to the frigid temperatures. She's been inside ever since.
We're probably going to be moving back into the city soon, and we can't take her with us. We need to find a new home for Pee-Wee. She is an extremely loving, funny, and great-looking cat who definitely loves people.
If you're interested in adopting, or know of someone who is, we'd love to hear from you. Send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 728-070-139.
UPDATE: We found a wonderful home for Pee-Wee on December 29. Thanks to everyone for their interest.
