Hi! My name is Cotton
I am Domestic Shorthair from Baltimore, MD
Nicknames: Cottie, "C", C-Tang (his gangsta name lol), C-Bear, BabyBoy, Cottay, Devil Cat
Age: 8 years old
Coat: short haired
Education: Cotton is a dare-devil. He is afraid of nothing and as curious as they come. He is an awesome athlete. He loves to play "fetch" with his toy foil balls. He literally fetches and brings it back and drops it so u will throw it again. He has excellent balance and jumps high. Cottie has also learned many hand signals. Cottie is deaf. Which makes all of the above things even more incredible. Cottie is also a watch-cat. He alerts us by a certain, loud meow, when anyone is approaching our front door.
My favorite tricks and treats are: He is just amazing in everything he does. Brave and courageous and a bit of an acrobat too. He knows hand signals, recognizes training aids. He recognizes the laser by the chain, way before he sees the red light. He sees the laser and automatically begins looking everywhere for the dot. He's so intelligent. "C" loves to talk! He is so vocal and will talk your ear off if u let him. At times, I could swear that he said, "Mom". But usually its.."NOW" or "WHAT?" lol... and Half and half. He knows that around 10 pm at night to start asking for his cream. He will meow continuously until you serve him the icecold light cream. He even shares this treat with others.
Where I hang out: Everywhere! Anywhere there is a human companion. The bay window in the sunshine. Mommy's bed and anywhere with running water.
My favorite grubs: He likes his dry food. Not much for canned food though. He loves chicken!! He gets his own plate of white meat chicken whenever he can.
My pet peeves: Cottie is a grand personality! He loves water and isn't shy about it. He will play at the faucet, chasing water drops or jumps in the shower with you if u let him. He has a very loud voice, since he can't hear himself due to his deafness.
What I love about my owners: She knows of my disability and still loves me unconditionally- . She works hard to provide stimulating, interactive activities to make up for my deafness. And I get my bowl of cream each and every night!!
My cat hobbies: Cottie just loves life. He is overly friendly and wants to play all the time. He is facinated by everything. He likes toys, lasers, television, computer monitors, wash machines, dryers, boxes, dresser drawers, fingers, hands etc.lol He seems to enjoy giving love bites too. If he doesn't want to be bothered, he is not shy about letting you know. But he's so cute, you just love to be around him. He loves to chase shadows and reflections on the walls and ceilings. Most times, u can hear him talking to them whenever he sees the lights. He loves to be mischevious and keeps all the other kitties on their toes. He is always into something or teasing the others. Cottie loves to play "backscratcher"- . We have an old wooden backscratcher that he loves to attack when u slide it under pillow cases or pillows. He will play for hours stalking and attacking the backscratcher from all angles. Cotton loves to meow alot. He will meow loudly for as long as it takes for you to give him what he wants. It sounds like he's verbalizing, "NOW!!" lol
Pet motto: My theme music, written by my owner...."This is why im soft,This is why im soft,This is why.. This is why..This is why im soft.Im soft cuz im NICE, I aint cuz im NOT.." lol
I'm proof that you don't need to hear in order to know you are loved. Please don't turn away from adopting animals that need a little extra tender loving care. We just want to be with you. Thanks! xoxo
