I am a big fan of irony, but who knew my name would eventually embrace the meaning of the word. My name is Stilettos... and I am a strong, independent woman with opinions and clear expectations. I demand respect, and I feel I've earned it. You see I started out my life at this shelter as a kitten 9 years ago until my family brought me back one year ago this month. I heard them say someone in the family had become allergic to me which isn't their fault--but it has been hard without them none the less.

Back to irony. I currently tip the scale at 13 pounds and, as I head into my mature years, the front declaw I had as a young girl is catching up with me. My family didn't know that declawing me could, and most likely would, cause me pain later in life. It's quite common as humans have learned over the last few years. So with the extra weight on my hips and the pain in my feet...well, I've had to put up my stilettos for good.

And, because of my independent ways and painful feet, I really would prefer to be in an all adult home with a low, covered litter box and fine grain litter. I've found clear expectations are critical in any human-feline relationship, so I would like a home where my people will provide me with supplements to help my painful toes and make sure I'm on the proper diet that supports renal health and weight loss. Look, I know I'm never wearing my stilettos again....but inside I am still Stilettos--the young sassy girl with bright green eyes--who secretly just wants to go home.

With love (but on my terms),
