"Look at me, look at me!" My name is Figaro and I am 2 years old. The volunteers at the adoption centre say my name suits me because I'm a real character. Hmmm, I wonder what that means. Wow did you just see that feather wand? I need to get that now. Wait, there's a string, no a cricket, no the feather....
I'm back. Will you pet me? Will you give me some treats??? Yikes, there's Freya, I better go bug her and make her swat me. I like to see her get all hissy. She hates me, you know? I don't care, it's fun to annoy her. I'll be back....
Oh, oh. I just got a time out. Darn. Well I guess since I'm in the penalty box I can tell you more about me. I was living in a home with a bunch of cats. I really didn't like all those cats around me but at least I had a home. My owner became sick so she took me to the vet. I was scared because I thought I was going to get shots. The owner mentioned to the vet that she couldn't keep me so she wanted to "put me down". I didn't know what that meant but the vet seemed worried and so I got worried too. Then the vet mentioned something about a rescue and he was relieved when she said yes so that made me feel better too. Then I found myself with a ‘foster mom' who played with me and gave me food and I wasn't surrounded by so many cats. I cuddled with her in the big bed every night. Eventually she said it was time for me to find my permanent home, so I was brought to this adoption centre. The volunteers are great except when they give me time outs which happens too often. Not my fault! I really don't like other cats so I bug them.
I love playing with feather wands and well just playing. After all, I am a young guy. I love people but I am shy to start. I don't like to be picked up and if you come at me to pick me up, I may back away. Something in my memory says, back away and keep yourself from being hurt. But if you say my name and come slowly to pet me, it makes me very, very happy.
Times up, I'm out again. Off to play and see what I can do next. Come and see me at Oakville PetSmart.
Figaro needs to be the only pet in the home. Older, respectful children to play with him would be great.
