This is Alfie [see attached picture], I need to find a
good home for him, because my home is a bad home,
because my first cat, Carlo, is not getting along with
him at all after a month, and Alfie is lonely and sad.
I know because the few times Carlo has escaped because
someone let him out, for that half hour or 20 minutes
or whatever, Alfie suddenly gets happy and
affectionate. Alfie needs a Carlo-free house.
I'm sending this to everyone in my Yahoo address book
because a] it's too much trouble to make a targeted
list and b] even if you have cats, hate cats, are
allergic to cats, maybe you know someone who isn't.
As a special bonus for your patience/victimization by
me in this way, I am offering to email those who ask
for it a picture of Alfie shaved. I am getting him
shaved on Tuesday, because his coat has these tangles
I can't comb out or cut out. He came to me that way,
but I hope to keep him knotless by regular brushing
after this. Anyway, whatever your situation, a shaved
cat - except for head and paws - is a sight you don't
want to miss. I saw it before, in 1983.
More about Alfie:
He's 5 years old, neutered, and his front paws have
been declawed [came to me that way]. He's sweet
natured and loves to sit in your lap and be petted,
and also sleep with you. He's beautiful and soft, as
you can see. I'm told he gets along with dogs. And
cats that aren't neurotic like Carlo. I got him
because Carlo needed a friend, and Alfie [who came to
me named Toxi, but I changed it to Alfie because Toxi
is short for Toxoplasmosis, a cat disease, and it
creeped me out, sorry] needed a home. I'm not going to
lie and say that I'm going to send him to the Humane
Society to possibly die if nobody takes him, but he
should have a better home than this. He could be happy
and he's not.
Thank you for your patience,
