Adoption Announcement – 12/31/2018
Meow there! I’m Kyro, and I’m here to tell you my furever home story. As for my background, I came to Safe Place for Pets at the end of November when my prior mom became to sick to take care of me. I was really scared and sad when I got there, but soon realized that it was a nice place and started paying attention to the volunteers and other cats.
I wasn’t there long though! My new mom and dad love black cats (and Siamese!) and had lost their other black cat earlier last year. They saw me online and can you believe that they came all the way down from Denver just to meet me??? Wow, am I special or what? As you’ve already guessed, I was a hit, so home I went with them that very afternoon. Things weren’t perfect at first; my new Siamese sister Magic and I had to get to know each other. I loved Mom and Dad immediately and was affectionate and talkative with them right away, but Magic and I weren’t quite sure of each other. Mom and Dad did a great job of introducing us to each other gradually though, and although we’re not best buds, we get along ok. Sometimes Magic even grooms me a bit, which is really nice. We both love laps, so we sometimes snuggle up together to share one or just to be close to Mom and Dad on the couch. I like to be close to my people, and I let them know that loud and clear when they start working on that dratted computer. I lie down smack dab in front of them or even right in their arms. In short, I make it impossible for them to get any work done, which redirects their attention to where it should be: ME! As Mom can attest to, I am a real chatterbox and can carry on long conversations with her. I also sleep with Mom and Dad at night, which is wonderful. 😻
As you can see from my pictures, I am one very happy cat. Life is about as perfect as it can get. I want to say a big thank you to my prior mom for sending me to Safe Place for Pets so that I could have a chance for a happy new life. We were together for a long time, and I know that it was terribly hard for her to say goodbye, but she put my happiness first, and I will always be grateful. I’d also like to say thank you to Cook Veterinary Hospital (a Safe Place partner vet) for bringing me up to date on my vaccinations, checking to make sure that I didn’t have that awful FIV disease, and microchipping me so that Mom and Dad can find me if I should ever get lost. That is so important! Well, I guess I’ll say goodbye now and go back to enjoying my wonderful new life.
Adoption Bio – 11/23/2018
Do I look Egyptian to you? My mom and sister thought so when they adopted me all those years ago, so they named me Kyro. They actually named me after the city in Egypt, but my sister (Mom’s daughter), who was a teenager at the time, thought it would be fun to play with my name, so instead of spelling it Cairo, they named me Kyro. Personally, I think Kyro is more distinctive anyway.
As far as my particulars are concerned, I am an 8-year-old neutered black domestic shorthair male with claws. As you can see in my picture, I have striking green eyes. What the picture has no way of showing you is how wonderfully soft and plush my fur is. I’m a beautiful guy if I don’t say so myself!
I came to Safe Place for Pets because Mom can’t take care of me any more and my sister’s husband and his family are horribly allergic to cats. Imagine that! Things have been strange lately; Mom has started wearing this funny tube in her nose that trails along behind her when she walks. I know that it has to be a real nuisance to her – it certainly is to me! As I said, things have been changing. I used to have a Siamese brother named Mokie and a black lab brother named Kona (after the coffee!), but they had to go away, so I am feeling really lonely and confused. I also had a special black kitty cat friend named Lana, but she got sick a lot and couldn’t stay with us. I’ve tried cuddling up next to Mom and even sleeping with her since Mokie and Kona left to make myself feel better, but that tube thing makes it hard on both of us. I really miss being with the other animals, and Mom and I both hope that when I find my new forever home it will be with someone who has animals – at least another cat! I’m really more of an animal cat than a person cat. I like people and like being petted, but I’m kind of independent. One really cute thing about me is that although I am not very big on toys, I have a fuzzy green blankie that I love to drag around between my legs. I guess it must look pretty funny, but hey! It’s mine. Mom says that she always used to know when I had it because I would make a really distinctive kind of meowing sound. It’s not my fault; I’d like to see you try to talk while carrying something in your mouth!
Mom loves me very much and is hoping that I can find a really special forever home where I can be happy and loved on my own terms. I’d like that too. Everything in my life is in a flux, and it would be so nice to find someplace where I could settle in again, hopefully with new friends. I’m still getting my feet underneath me here, but I’d love to have you come down and meet me. I’m at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center close to the Senior Center, and all you have to do to make an appointment to see me is call the Safe Place number at 719-359-0201 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please come see me. I really need a new home!
