I wanted to add a playmate for Maddie so off to the SPCA we went. My goal was to adopt a cat that I personally deemed undesirable to typical new cat owners. I was never a fan of calicos but there she was - a bit older and a very colorful wild patterned post kitten age cat. She has been spayed as well. The introduction to Maddie was very very slow and in fact, is a whole other story. Gabby is about 4 years old now.
Gabby could NOT stand anyone touching her. Her skin would just roll when you tried to pet her. She was super sweet but I guess you could say, a typical scared shelter cat. It has taken a long while but she is much much better now. When I'm in my recliner watching TV, she plops herself down on my chest - her mouth to my mouth and refuses to budge. She will let me pet her for long periods of time before she decides to move on. Same thing in bed. Doesn't matter if I am on my side, my back or my stomach, she will curl up on top of me.
Her temperament is what I would call normal. Not lazy, not overactive.
Nails/Vet visits: I have to give her Gabapentin 1.5 hours before taking her in for nail trims. She is improving though. I have high hopes for her future nail trims - drug free. Shots? Oy vey. The first set of annual shots - WOW! She was a total maniac and they barely got a rabies shot in her. Not sure exactly where the needle landed but it went somewhere. It was very stressful and interesting to say the least. We basically shut down the clinic for an hour and had all hands on deck. The next shot and nail trim session, the Vet did a total knock out to give her a good once over. Since then I have used the Gabapentin. Need to combine drugs with treatment for low stress.
NEEDS TO BE REHOMED WITH MADDIE AND MUST BE INDOORS
