    Story

    Hey there! I’m Ombre and I’m looking for my furever person!

    I use to live my days outside but one day AARCS scooped me up. At first it was super scary but I’m realizing that the joys of being around humans are wonderful. They feed me when I’m hungry, I eat that food super fast and then try to get my foster sisters food but I’m learning that she doesn’t like to share, so I have to just sit and watch her eat. Humans also give yummy treats when I do weird things like give them my paw or sit, I’m happy to amuse them with such things if they keep giving me those treats and they say I’m super smart. And humans give me great scratches behind the ears or on the belly, I love love love this! The humans leave during the day, so I spend the day hanging out with my foster sister and the grumpy cat. My foster sister is teaching me how to play with toys, we play tug a war lots. And the cat swats at me if I get too close, so I try to keep my distance from it, those claws are sharp! Sometimes I chew up things I’m not supposed to but the humans let me know when they get home, so I’m learning what’s okay to play with and what’s not. Living indoors is great but I still know that I must go outside to relieve myself, I’m really good at not making any messes in the house and letting the humans know when I need to go. I’m getting really comfortable in my foster home, the humans are working real hard at building my confidence but new places still make me nervous but with patience and time I seem to overcome my fears. I’m also still unsure about this leash thing they do with me when we go outside, I can only go a certain distance from them and only where they want me to go, when I really want to just have my own freedom, but I really like the humans so I want to stay close to them anyways, so I’m learning that this is not that bad of a constraint. I just love being around the humans so much that I follow them around the house when they are home and they even made a nice bed for me in their room so I can sleep there every night. As much as I love these humans, I really want to find my furever human.
