Is your cat female or male?
Bernie is male.How old is your cat and what's his/her year of birth?
Bernie is 5 years old. He was born sometime in 2011. His exact date of birth is not known since he is a former stray cat. At the writing of this post, I have had him five days now. What does she/he look like?
Bernie is a handsome tuxedo domestic shorthair mix.How did you meet?
Bernie and I met at the ASPCA here in NYC! I had wanted to adopt a cat for some time and he was the first cat I was introduced to and I immediately fell in love with him and his story. He has a rather large head and was so eager to be pet. He was hiding in a box they put in his little area and once I held him, i just knew I had to take him home.What's your cat's life story?
Bernie was a stray cat born around 2011. He is FIV+,which he possibly contacted during territorial fights in the streets of NYC, guessing by the wound on his left shoulder. He has had 8 dental extractions due to his immune system being compromised by his FIV. What's your cat's personality like?
Bernie is such a loving, friendly cat. I was scared he'd be shy when I brought him home but he quickly warmed up to me. He follows me everywhere (the ASPCA says he is a 'sidekick' type cat), he steps all over my laptop and my homework, he loves being pet and kissed everywhere and he loves to sleep!What are his/her favorite treats/food/toys?
His favorite treats right now (we will change this soon though) is the turkey flavored Temptations. He goes c r a z y when he hears the bag or smells it. He loves shoestrings and hair ties. He is a little hunter he loves the sound of mice and love playing with anything resembling mice.Any special stories about your life together?
We have only been together for five days, but I have a story. On his first night here, my boyfriend came to visit and we were hanging out with my mom and her boyfriend. My mom went to talk to a neighbor and had our front door open a bit for about 10 minutes. I hadn't heard from Bernie and let him do his own thing since he was getting used to our apartment. After my mom closed the door, I decided to look for Bernie. I looked everywhere and couldn't find him at all! I started hysterically sobbing and crying thinking I had lost him. My boyfriend tried comforting me before he found him in my room behind my vertical blinds the whole time. So evil!
