This month’s adoptable pet from Second Change Animal Aid (SCAA):
Xiao Laohu: Equal Opportunity Feline Friend for People and Pets Alike
Who Am I?
I’m a lovely, outgoing and happy female tri-color tabby under 2 years old. Don’t be fooled by my name. I’m best described as a big kitten rather than a little tiger!
Found abandoned on the street as a baby kitten in need of bottle feeding, I’ve been waiting patiently in foster care for an adoptive family a long time. This fact is as much a mystery to me as it is to my great foster parents at everyone at SCAA.
Why I Make a Great Pet!
My amazingly social temperament! Hand raised by a kind foster mom, I’m confident around new people and love making friends. I’ve been known to coo like a pigeon at my foster mom’s visitors. My unexplainably long time in SCAA foster care has been a mixed blessing as I’ve not only learned to share my space with other foster animals, I’ve thrived on the companionship of other cats and dogs too.
Although it’s a heartwarming sight to find me curled up on a big pet bed with other foster animals, watching me mentor my new foster kittens friends, or touch noses in greeting my foster mom’s Golden Retriever, what I long for is a forever family.
My excellent health
As for my health, you couldn’t ask for a better cat. Like all SCAA foster animals, I’ve received the best vet care possible from SCAA’s vet partner, PAW. After suffering a mild bout of common skin fungus last year, most likely the result of napping in a foster mom’s big potted plant – ringworm thrives in moist soil; my coat is now soft and shiny. I’ve been treated for fleas and mites (Revolution), worms (Milbemax), and am up to date on my vaccinations (Tri-Cat and rabies) as well as spayed.
My Ideal Home
In addition to a person or two to lavish attention on me and gratefully accept my cat kisses, I would enjoy a home that offers the companionship and attention of another friendly cat or a gentle dog. There’s plenty of love to go around and I like sharing.
