August 7, 2009 After 24 hours in her foster home, I can tell you she is very affectionate and purrs, purrs, purrs! She loves to be brushed and have her large belly rubbed. She'll roll around and chirp, obviously delighted by the attention! Don't let that stern little face fool you, she is a very sweet, mellow girl! UPDATE! Sept 22, 2009: Well, Chessie is still doing very well with my large dog-no hissing or growling, just acceptance. But, I've decided to list her as preferring a home with no other cats. See, Chessie is terrified around dominant cats and being the only cat would increase her confidence and bring out her best (but let me stress that she is NOT a hider!!!). She's a cat that wants to be near you all the time-and she is afraid to compete with the others for your attention, so if you're looking for a companion, you should meet this loving gal. She rubs her face on my feet and likes to sit next to me while I watch TV at night. She's not clingy and just speaking to her while she naps will induce a hearty purr from her. She loves to eat, so it's up to you to monitor her intake of food since she is rahter, um...chubby. Chessie is also the type of cat who's unsure about playtime-she enjoys playing but you get the idea that it's somewhat of a new concept for her. She must not have led a happy past life if she's new to the idea of playtime! That being said, any time you'd chose to spend playing with her she'd appreciate, but she's not the type to be banging about in the middle of the night during your slumbers! Chessie is UTD with vaccinations, spayed, and been treated with flea preventative, and de-wormed. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
