The Basics: Hi! I’m Nemo! I’m an affectionate cat that loves naps and gets the “zoomies” a couple times a day. I came into the shelter after my people couldn’t take care of some skin issues I had. It was also discovered that my eyes were very irritated from a condition called entropion where my eyelashes were growing inside my eyelids and scratching my eyeballs. Ouch, was that constantly irritating. Animal Aid got me a surgery to fix that I am so relieved to not have that pain anymore. My fur is all good now but I should probably stay on a hypoallergenic food so I don’t get itchy again.
My foster mom says I shed very little and I’m pretty easy to brush & trim nails. Before my eye surgery I wasn’t feeling as well and had a harder time seeing so a couple times gave a little hiss if something alarmed me but otherwise I’m very gentle. Foster mom says I’m a lovely balance of affectionate and fun without being too needy.
Likes: I love food! I also love petting and human affection. I go nuts for feather toys, chasing them around and getting zoomies a couple times a day. Sometimes I will play fetch with a ball toy. I love to sit in my cat tree and bird watch. I also like to snuggle humans.
Dislikes: I get very stressed in a carrier and may try so hard to get out that I hurt my claws. A soft sided carrier is essential for me.
Looking for: A quiet home with lots of love!
My estimated birth date is 1/1/2019.
