Hi there! My name is Aspen and I am here to introduce myself. I am an 11-year-old female spayed domestic shorthair with claws. I’m a petite lady and weigh just under eight pounds, which the nice lady who examined me said is fine for my build. I’m a pretty girl, a dark gray and white tabby with a white face and bib.
I came to Safe Place for Pets just a bit ago with my sister Moxie. She and I are litter mates but we are definitely NOT bonded. As a matter of fact, we don’t like each other and tend to fight. So we would both be perfectly happy to go to different fur-ever homes! I will say that even though we don’t like each other, we look like twins! If you look at us both from the front you’d be hard-pressed to tell which of us is which 😸. We are here at Safe Place because our mom is really sick and we are making it harder for her. I suppose it’s more my fault than Moxie’s because I’m the one who always wants to be up close and personal. I love to sit in her lap and ask to be petted and cuddled, and I even try to sleep right on her face at night, which bothers her now that she’s so sick. So even though she loves us both very much and misses us now that we’re gone, it was time. It’s confusing to be away from home at a different place with other cats, and I’m feeling a bit shyer than I normally do. I usually walk up to anyone I meet to say hello, but right now I feel more comfortable hanging out in my kennel. You might wonder how I would do in a home with other pets, and to be honest I don’t know. Since Moxie and I don’t get along, I have a hunch that I’d probably be happier as an only cat. As far as dogs are concerned, I‘m not sure. I like older children who are gentle with me. Cats as a whole don’t really like rough handling, although there are always exceptions! Just like humans, we all have our own personalities.
I miss Mom and am sad that we had to leave her, but since there’s nothing to be done about it, I’d really like to find someone who would love and cuddle me and let me love and cuddle me back. Do you think you might be that someone? If so, please come down to the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center and meet me. I’m a sweetheart if I do say so myself, and I’d love to show you that. It’s easy to make an appointment to see me. You can either call Safe Place for Pets at 719-359-0201 or fill out the form below. Either way, I’ll be waiting!
