    “Hi! I’m Ari and I’m looking for a warm lap!

    Looking at me you wouldn’t guess that I’ve had quite the journey the last few years. My mama, who loved me very much, had to let me go live with her sister when a big move took her far away. I loved my auntie though too and things were really nice! Sadly though, my Auntie died suddenly. My mama couldn’t take me back and so a friend offered to keep me safe and warm till something ideal came along. This new family was really great though too! Lots of little kids to entertain me and always at least one lap to sit on and get some love. I could pick which kid to sleep with at night too! I sure love being cuddled and there were lots of cuddles in that house. But sadly, through no fault of my own, again I had to leave. So now, I am staying at a foster home hoping to find a family that is not too hot, not too cold but one that is JUST RIGHT! A family I can stay with forever and ever!

    A few more details about me: I am seven years old. I am really healthy although I’m told I could lose a few pounds. Hmmmph. There’s just more of me to love I say! I really don’t mind the activity of a busy family! I am super chill and love being in the center of things. I love to be pet and I don’t mind being groomed. I don’t know if I like dogs or not but I’m thinking they might be OK. As long as they like me, I might like a fur buddy too! That being said, for some reason, I don’t like too many of my own kind. I really never learned how to play and I can be a bully with other cats. Oh, before I forget, there is one other really kind of neat thing about me – I am deaf! Please don’t let that keep you away! I know some sign language and it’s really not too hard to communicate with me once we get in the groove together. Sometimes I startle easily but that’s about the extent of how that affects my life. Just another part of my charm, I say!

    So, if a big, gorgeous guy who loves to cuddle is your thing, I would love to meet you! I’m looking forward to finding my Perfect Family and be your Cuddle Buddy for years to come!”

    Gorgeous AND sweet!
