About Me

Active within 2593 Days

Hi! My name is Tara

I am Domestic Shorthair from Ocean City, NJ

Nicknames: Tara-Dara, Dara, Scoop, and Bundle

Age: 10 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: We're always proud of him. He has some visual/motor coordination problems, but he learned to compensate for them is a very happy, healthy cat. He's also come along way in overcoming what we think must be abandonment issues. When he first joined our family, he mewled loudly and repeatedly whenever either of us walked into a different room from him.He did the same thing when either of us left the house. He is still a little leary of being left "alone", but overall he seems to understand that we won't leave/abandon him. Now he doesn't mewl when we leave the room, though often he'll get up and follow us.

My favorite tricks and treats are: He plays fetch, he comes when we make clicking noises with our tongues, and he sleeps under the top blanket of our bed at night. Normally we hold the blanket up for him, but if he's not ready to sleep when we are, he'll pull the blanket back with his paws until he can scoot under it. and Any flavor of normal treats. He also loves vegetables.

Where I hang out: Under blankets, or throws. Patches of sunshine, and the window ledge closest to the bird feeder.

My favorite grubs: Any flavor of wet food.

My pet peeves: Being left alone, his sister not wanting to play when he does, rain, and sudden loud noises.

What I love about my owners: They give me lots of treats, hugs, kisses, and toys, and they play with me often.

My cat hobbies: EAT! He also loves to play.

Pet motto: "Cats should eat and play 24/7"

How We Met

Our friend saw him walking next to a highway. It wasn't near anything but more highway and pine barrens, and because of that coupled with the fact that he seems to be afraid of being alone, we think he was abandoned there. Our friend couldn't take him because he already had three large dogs and one of them didn't like cats or small dogs. We already had another cat and thought it would be good for the two of them to be company for each other. So we adopted him. We fell in love immediately.

Hey, Tara! You're a cutie! Who could ever have abandoned you? We're all rescue kitties, too. Augusta was abandoned at the park across the street when she was just about 4 months old. She was so cold and scared - Mom doesn't think she'd ever been outside before. So, we're with ya, buddy! Aren't we lucky to have found a good family to take care of us and other furry friends for company? Here's a vote for you.

Come visit me, Sissy, Casper, Punkinhead, Tsu-Dee & Lady Augusta.
