Hello there, my name is Moxie, and it’s my turn to introduce myself. Like my litter mate Aspen, I am an 11-year female spayed dark gray and white tabby with claws. I’m a bit bigger than she is, at almost 9 pounds, but I’m not fat 😾! If you’ve read Aspen’s self-introduction, you’ll know that we are almost identical. But only almost. If you will take a look at the picture of my right shoulder, you’ll see that I have a thin but very visible white stripe running up around it towards my back. We may look the same from the front, but not from the side. So there, Aspen!
I do agree with my sister when she says that we really don’t like each other that much and have no desire to stay together. I am much more my own cat, not a snuggler or lap cat the way she is. I’m more reserved and independent. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t also have love to give! I’m happy to come up to get some petting, but only when I’m so inclined. I do love Mom and am sad to have had to leave her. But we really needed to do what was best for her, so here we both are at Safe Place for Pets. It was kind of cool how we ended up here. Mom’s daughter couldn’t take us, so she posted on something called Craigslist that she was looking for a home for us. And lo and behold, one of the Safe Place volunteers emailed her and told her about Safe Place! It was a big relief for her because the volunteer explained how Safe Place takes care of all of our health needs and makes sure that we find just the right home. As far as the kind of home I’m looking for, Aspen and I are very similar there. I’d rather be an only cat, and I’m not sure how I’d get along with dogs. It might depend on the dog. I’d probably be fine with children as long as they understand how to behave around cats.
Like Aspen, I do really want a new fur-ever home. If you would like a cat who is loving but not needy, I might be just the gal for you! Why don’t you come down to the Welcome Center and see? As my almost-twin said, it’s easy to arrange by either calling 719-359-0201 or filling out the form below. I’d be glad to meet you!
