A White Cat Story
by Kristen England
My white cat has always been antisocial. He has been treated like a king but refuses to accept any affection. He hates strangers & hisses at everyone who crosses his path......however, he has his 'own' special sweet way of showing his loyalty and respect for his master...he gets up early and directs me to his food bowl (which hold prime brands)....then he follows me upstairs where he loves to sit on my CD player while I get ready for work. He will grunt when he wants to be fed - he will follow me from a distance staying in close view but will NOT let me hold him.
His name is BOOGER.....only a cat lover would ever put up with his personality....he looks just identical to picture #2 above...he was "set out" on my porch (15) years ago by someone who did not want him - he was so young he did not know how to eat. I taught him to eat and he has always lived inside with every luxury a pet could imagine.....but he has never changed his ways. I just cannot win him over....when he was young he loved to play and would play for hours - that is the only interaction he has ever allowed, although at times "on his own terms" he will come and get in our laps, however, he does not allow touching during these times. He has been known to "attack" and bite for no reason.....He is very moody and sometimes goes on hunger strikes for a different brand of food....his ears have always hurt him & he has always had digestive problems.....
I had him neutered a young age but this did not impact his aggressive personality either. He hates other cats...I guess you know the rest....love is blind!!
