About Me

Active within 2449 Days

Hi! My name is Aster

I am Domestic Shorthair from Maumee, OH

Nicknames: Silly Boy; Love bopper, Aster boy

Age: 9 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Professional Jingle Ball Fetcher.
Aster is getting surgery tomorrow to have his deformed left rear leg amputated as the bone has broken through the thin layer of skin on the end. We are very proud of him for coming so far in beginning to trust us after his abuse from a previous owner.******* UPDATE: Aster pulled through his surgery great. He is so much happier and not in pain-his vet said one of his nerves was on the wrong side of his leg and probably causing him a lot of pain. He has come a long way and will occasionally even let us pick him up-for about 2 seconds.

My favorite tricks and treats are: Play fetch with his favorite leopard jingle balls! and canned food.

Where I hang out: Under the covers.

My favorite grubs: canned food, though he's not very picky, just a slow and dainty eater.

My pet peeves: He doesn't like loud noises or sudden movements. Though We've only had him for two weeks, and he's getting so much more trusting towards all of us.

What I love about my owners: They gave me a second chance when no one else would look at me because I was different.

My cat hobbies: burrow under the blankets and play fetch FOREVER!

Pet motto: I'll take on the world in my own good time, in my own good way.

How We Met

We adopted Aster after visiting the local cat shelter and hearing his story; he, his brother and sister were found on the streets. The owner had taken their mom away when they were very little. Some teenagers began picking on them and abusing especially Aster and his sister because he only had a deformed stump for a rear leg, and she had no front right leg. A good samaritan called the police and the kittens were brought to the shelter. His sister was adopted right away, but Aster and his brother had been stuck in the shelter cage for nine months. Dash, his brother, had a potential new family looking into adopting him, so we just couldn't leave this poor, frightened and nervous kitty behind. He just needed someone to work with him and love him. It only took him a week,and now he trusts us and head butts us (hard) every time he sees us. We are so proud of him over coming his past and his fear of people.

Hi there Aster!
Just dropped by for a visit. I like your Avatar a lot. I read your story and I am proud of you for overcoming your fears. All humans aren't mean, as you now know. I think it's great that your Mommy has taken you all in and is helping spread the word about leukemia. Just thought I would stroll over for a visit. Here's a vote for you!
