Meet Desi, 15 years old Domestic Longhair
Hello there nice people. I am Desi. You'll find that I am a loving, quiet, friendly, attractive boy. After being with my people my entire life (over 13yrs), I am here at the shelter waiting for you to come get me. Why am I here? Well, my people decided to be missionaries overseas and said I couldn't go with them. They said they wanted to "save humanity." I guess there was no place for me to go. So I am hoping that someone out there will feel the same way about me that my people felt about going overseas -- compelled to help and desirous of making a difference.My people told MaxFund that I love brushing. The volunteers here have discovered that as well. My people also said that I enjoy sleeping in my cat bed and enjoy string. They say I "talk a lot" but no 1 has heard me talk here. Here, I am quite quiet. Maybe because this place is so confusing to me after being in a loving home my whole life. They also said I enjoy drinking from a fountain and can be shy. They said I am nice with children and will play with cats but am fearful of dogs. Here is what the volunteers and staff have discovered. I am an incredibly wonderful and gentle cat. I like petting and am social but am also shy at 1st. I seem to get along fine with the other cats--at least I don't seem bothered by them. I mostly just keep to myself. So no worries if you have another cat at home. Same with children -- maybe I could be a new best friend for your kid(s). Like so many humans, I have diabetes. So I get daily injections. But as many humans have discovered, shots are no big deal, and I can live a happy and healthy life. I sure hope that is with you. Because I have diabetes, I am available for foster as well as adoption. That means MaxFund would cover my medical expenses at its clinic and provide my insulin and food. Of course, I am hoping for a forever home. If you are interested in fostering me, please contact the shelter to get more information. I know they would be sad to see me leave, because everyone has fallen in love with me. But they'd love to see me in a loving home! I am de-clawed if you want a de-clawed cat. I'm told that all my other attributes make me very desirable but that is just 1 more for some people. Please come meet me so you can see what a dreamy cat I am. In the meantime, I will be waiting here for you. Thank you.
