Hi there, it is purrsome to meet you.
My name is Cupo, and I am a laid-back two-year-old in dire need of a home.
I say dire need, because my life thus far has had unpleasant moments, and I really look forward to a place where I could settle in and feel safe.
Let me back up a bit, to December last year. I was barely a year old and thought my life would be over before it even started. I roamed the streets of Sarasota, starving, with an injured eye and a broken jaw. Humans from Animal Services picked me up and that was scary too. I didn't know their intentions, and I was in bad shape, unable to care for myself.
I couldn't believe my luck when they took me to Cat Depot. I was in a room filled with vets and other humans with gentle hands and kind voices. They made the pain go away and fed me. I needed time to heal, but eventually made it to a pod with other kitties.
Life here is really awesome, especially compared to being alone on the street, but the other cats have told me about a place called home. I can't remember if I ever had one, but they make it sound wonderful.
They say home is a place with soft places to sleep, kind humans who keep coming back for you and take care of you, and food, toys, and treats. Kind of like Cat Depot, but it's a place to live furever, and you get to know your purrson really well.
I would love to try that.
I like gentle head-rubs and I'll give kisses. Because of my past I can be a bit nervous if you touch me all over my body, I hope you understand. I could probably get used to it, but I need someone to be patient and respect me when I say no. I also enjoy long naps, especially if I can be somewhere up high.
Would you give me a chance? I am so ready to start a new chapter in my life.
