My Cat Profile

American Shorthair from <a href='' title='Chicago, IL'>Chicago, IL</a>


About Me

Active within 2842 Days

Hi! My name is Coltrane

I am an American Shorthair from Chicago, IL

Nicknames: Col', Coley, buddy, kitty cat, kitty, Fat Cheeks, 'trane

Age: 8 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired


My favorite tricks and treats are: I like my organic catnip made in the US, and all-natural chicken treats. And the natural salmon is delicious: it is just pieces of real salmon, cut up and freeze dried!

Where I hang out: Mom and Dad just brought me home, after adopting me, on Tuesday, 3/3/2009.
But in my first three days, I have enjoyed going under Mom's bed when I'm not on top of it. I also like Mom's closet, behind her boxes and such.

My favorite grubs: I currently eat Science Diet Optimal Care, which they fed me at the shelter.

But when I go to the vet for the first time, Mom wants to switch to an all-natural grain-free food instead.

She's attentive to the ingredients, and doesn't want to feed me 'meat byproduct meal' with intestines, beaks, feather, brains, etc. Only the best for her first and only furbaby!

My pet peeves: I don't like getting into my carrier bag, and try to climb out. But, Mom is bigger than me and simply picks me up.
I have no peeves, though, really; Mom and her friends say I am the sweetest, best behaved cat!

What I love about my owners: My mom is a student and gladly makes lots of sacrifices for me, feeding me good things and taking care of me. And my mom and I were both adopted (but not together, of course!).

When Dad's here too, I get both of their devoted attention! I like love, attention, and affection, especially from them.
I love them lots, and we make a purrfect family!

My cat hobbies: I like getting cozy with Mom and Dad on the bed for a snuggle session!

How We Met

My mom wanted to start looking at cats and had seen me online, and came to visit my shelter since I was close by. I was the first one they had the lady bring out to them, and we fell in love with each other instantly.
I sat on Dad's lap right away and nuzzled against him.
Someone else wanted to see me, so Mom decided quickly to adopt me.
They hadn't expected to get a cat that day or so suddenly, but she didn't want me to get away!
We are all so glad she adopted me and that I am now her first and only furbaby!

BIG News
Hey Coltrane,guess what happened. Ginger is a MOM! OMG!I can't even believe it! Mom was making plans to get Ginger to the vet for a "look". Then I heard Mom say it was too late for that-she said that it was Dad's fault for letting Ginger outside. Now Ginger has 4 babies-she must have brought them back in with her when Dad let her out. These are really small babies,they didn't even look real at first. I run by them really fast to show them how. I keep watching them to see if any want to play but they just want Ginger! I can't wait for them to start running-we will have races!!I'm soooo exssited.

Hi Coltrane
Hello, my name is Alex and I was wondering if you could vote for my baby Calvin on March 27th. Calvin left us March 27th 2008, we had him for 18 years and we felt like a part of us was gone. It would be a great honor if we could be Cat of the Day March 27th 2009.
Thank you for your time.
Your new friends, =^.^=
Alex, Poof, Coconut, and Kiyote

Come visit me, R.I.P. Calvin 5/09/1990 - 3/27/08, Coconut, Kiyote & Lil' Poof.
