Hi my name is Possum & I came into the care of the rescue with my kittens after being found fending for ourselves on rural property at just a few days old. Thankfully the rescue had an experienced carer who was able to take us on and undertake the mammoth role of hand-raising us.
I am a sweet natured kitten with a big purrrsonality! So what's on the menu? Well some of the below, but not limited to the below. It will give you an idea anyway!
I WILL do bog laps around the house at inappropriate hours
I WILL get into things and places that I shouldn't
I WILL want to play with just about anything that moves
I WILL demand cuddles whenever I please (and you are expected to oblige)
I WILL sleep at night on or around either of the following; neck, stomach, head, bottom, knee, feet, arms
I WILL try to eat anything and everything.
I WILL steal things I know I'm not meant to have
I WILL hoard my contraband somewhere I'm not meant to be
I WILL chew your toes while you try to sleep (& if that doesn't work, see below)
I WILL demand cuddles at inappropriate times
I WILL smack your face when I've decided it's time for you to wake up
I WILL gnaw on your earlobes when I've decided it's time for you to wake up
I WILL use my paws and teeth to help create new and interesting hair styles. Oh what can you expect them to look like? Picture someone that's put their finger in a power socket (and no.... I don't recommend doing that).
So now the important stuff. What sort of home will I suit? I'm a young socialite that will thrive in the company of another cat.... or better yet, my sister! Dogs? The great thing about the foster care system is our foster pawrents are able to test us with a bunch of different things.... This allows the rescue figure out what we 'would' and 'wouldn't' suit. I have had limited interactions with doggies but so far, have been relatively non-reaction. What does this mean? Well, it means I will adapt well to a home with another doggie -BUT- may be a bit hissy upon our our initial introduction. Children? I will be fine with children as long as I am given space 'to chill' when needed (preferably no children under the age of 3).
