Does your home ever seem insufficiently fuzzy?
Do you long to be lovingly chewed on by tiny fangs?
Do you have allergies and a masochistic streak?
Do you worry that the dust bunnies under your bed don't get pounced on often enough?
In short, are you suffering from a shortage of cat?
This is, depending on how you see it, either an offer or a request. I'm moving in a week and a half, into a co-op in which I officially cannot keep my cat Peanut (more on the move later). Unofficially is another matter, and once I've gotten to know my housemates a little bit I hope to wheedle them into letting her stay. But for the meantime and in case my wheedling doesn't work, I need to find her a temporary home. The period is anywhere from a couple of weeks (if my wheedling works very well indeed) to five months (if it doesn't work at all).
I think most of you are well familiar with Peanut. She's that round grey pillow that hangs around my living room and occasionally runs jingling through the house on comically fat fuzzy legs. She's not to be confused with Bella, who will take your hand off if you try to touch her. Peanut's most violent reaction to unwelcome contact is to stare glumly at you and try to droop her way to freedom. She's extremely sweet and takes a generally laissez-faire approach to things like doors and people, making her an easy cat to deal with. The only real inconvenience she presents is that, being quite fluffy, she's guaranteed to set off your allergies if you have any. If anyone is willing to take that risk and give her a home, I'll gladly reimburse that person for food, litter, and of course any vet bills that come up.
Can you really say no to this face?
