offshore, have you found your cat yet?

i have been deciding the past week or so if i should introduce you to a cat my wife adores.

she thinks it's an abandoned cat (as opposed to stray) that's been fending for herself for a while.

the cat's not young, but very well tempered and very affectionate and enjoys human companionship. what's more, her tail is long and completely proper. she also loves being scratched and rubbed.

the down sides? she's quite vocal (the cat... well, maybe both of them) and sheds but my wife thinks the shedding is due to her poor diet. she also seems quite greedy (the cat).

otherwise she's in good physical shape (not skinny or sickly).

if you've not found a cat and would not mind checking this orange cat out, let me know and i'd be happy to track her down for you and point you to her. i think she'd make a very good pet and i'd take her if i wasn't so biased against cats.

in fact, i nearly allowed my wife to talk me into taking the cat in...!

the cat now lurks in a private estate in bt timah fending off strays and hiding in odd spots, but we see her regularly and my wife spends time with her whenever she sees the cat.

Thanks for the offer but... I've tried to take these sorts of strays in before... and they are just too used to living outside.

I've decided to wait til Jan 1st before we get a car.

this cat doesn't like living out doors. it has tried to live in my friend's home many many times, until she got tired of being chased away by the house helps...

if you change your mind, or want to visit her, just PM me.

p/s: i assume you meant cat.

Have you gotten your cat? If you have not, perhaps go about adopting one instead of buying :) .. If you have, take good care of the cat! Don't forget to share the photo of your kitty.. ;)

As a pet lover, one would have thought you would have at least read the thread from the beginning. Had you done so, you wouldn't look like such a dunderhead now, considering that was mooted within the first couple of replies. Or are you just trying to build up posts so you can spam our regulars via PM? :roll:

here are some pictures taken just this late afternoon. the cat was too friendly and i was unable to take better pictures because it would keep butting the phone and slinking around my legs.

all the other pictures show even blurrier partial cat shots and have my hairy legs in them.

cats usually come out in pictures looking quite aloof. in the flesh (okay, fur), this one looks much sweeter and friendlier.

my wife wants me to mention:

she was a regular after school companion (2PM - 9PM), for about 9 months, to 2 kids aged (at that time) 3 (boy) and 7 (girl).

these kids were never gentle with her, and the cat has never once displayed any agression. it's a pity their mom decided there was to be no more cat in her home.

the very naughty boy, actually stepped on her tail on more than one occasion and all was well. i witnessed no claws and no hissing and no arched back - she just jumped and meowed loudly, walked slowly to about a 2 feet away from him and laid down again, completely relaxed.

we believe she is very used to being manhandled. she loves human contact and affection and is not territorial.

so my wife and i both think she would do really well in a loving home. i'm unsure if she's been neutered as her ear is not clipped, but she's not a stray from birth so her previous owners may have opted not to clip them.

i think the only downsides i must add is she's quite greedy and meows persistently when she's hungry.

oh, there is no kink/defect in her tail. the bones feel nice and straight all the way to the tip.

Ok - you have me convinced. The question is whether she will move locations.... cats can be fussy about that.

That is one nice looking cat. If I were legally allowed to keep cats in my HDB, I'd grab her. If shes comfortable she would make the move easily. My old calico was friendly like that. In fact, we think that's how she was stolen as anybody who would scratch her would have her falling over to get a belly rub as well. She was a stray as well who decided to make me her owner when I lived in Seletar Camp years ago. We brought her with us when I bought the HDB flat.

In fact, she doesn't look like a stray at all, truth be known.

i don't think she's difficult to move, given her personality, so i'm sure we'll figure a way to get the cat to your home when you're ready for it.

just PM me at such time and i'll have her delivered (personally or through a friend).

mean while, i recommend you check her out in the fur before making that final decision.
