When I first made my move across the United States, I was less than excited, knowing my new place was going to be really small. I didn't intend to get a pet right away, but within a week of moving in I found myself at the local shelter during a special Adopt-a-cat event.
I told the Assistant that I could only accept a cat that was already declawed due to the furniture and I didn't want to put a cat through that awful process. She informed me that out of over 300 plus cats only one was declawed. So that is when I met Chloe, now Natasha, she was extremely over weight. She nearly weighed 15 pounds. She wasn't super cute, and didn't seem affectionate. The assistant again told me she had been re-homed 3 times already due to her horrible temperament. She didn't like kids, she didn't like being held, and she was lazy. I was sold, I wanted to make her life better.
I have now had Natasha for five months. She has lost 3 pounds, and she actually seems to enjoy roaming around now that she has shed some pounds. I don't know what I would do with out my drama queen in my life. She sneaks into my room and sleeps on the bed, then pretends her life is over when I move her into the living room. She isn't the world's nicest cat but when she has her moments she is so beautiful. She now has the respect every queen deserves, and I am just her lady in waiting. Queen Natasha now has a jester friend named Boris to keep her more active.
