Biography

Ponyo is an incredibly sweet and affectionate cat who loves sitting on laps and enjoys head scritches and pets. You’d never know she is a senior from her tiny body, baby-like meow! She loves when people sing and if you ever need to find her, just sing a song and she’ll come out.

This adorable, fluffy, black cloud with big yellow eyes loves chilling on or near you but also loves snoozing in a hiding spot so you never feel smothered. I have loved taking care of her, but unfortunately recent family and health circumstances have made it difficult for us to give her the attention and care that she deserves.

FINE PRINT: Ponyo hides when strangers or young kids visit, but has never scratched, bitten or shown aggression. She needs adequate scratching posts or might have a go at fabric furniture. She previously lived harmoniously with another cat but has shown a preference for living alone the past few years (didn’t get along with my parents cats when I left on a trip). One of her strange quirks is that she strongly prefers pâté style wet food and eats very little dry food. If she is fed too late she sometimes scarfs her food too fast and throws it up so we do our best to keep her mealtimes regular. She is a fluffy, soft long-haired kitty, so if you want to avoid hairballs and finding her hair everywhere, be prepared to brush regularly!!

I wouldn’t part with this very sweet girl if it wasn’t for our personal circumstances, but I’m really hoping she can find a loving new family that can give her the affection and attention she deserves.
