Meet Na'vel

Na'vel is a 6-7 year old manx/bobtail cat that is mostly black with a white patch on her belly. Her eyes are green-gold and she meows like a kitten. She acts more like a baby than a cat. She’s fairly small for her age. She loves to be carried around and snuggled (on her terms) and she'll paw at you to ask for attention (which will remind you that she still has all her claws). She's almost always in the room with you if not snuggled up in your lap or on your chest. She loves to go outside but can't stand being in a harness. Her favourite place is either in your lap or in an open window to chirp at the birds.

This baby is incredibly sweet. She suckles and kneads on sherpa/fleece blankets, as well as anything that's soft enough to mimic a momma cat. When my parents found her, she was only a few weeks old and there was no mother in sight for her and her sister, so I assume that behavior is due to her never being properly weaned. I also think that's why she acts the way she does. She is genuinely a baby. She always wants to sleep on top of you and snuggle and rub against you, but she does have manx in her so that comes with an attitude. If she doesn't like something, she will definitely be letting you know. She loves to climb and jump into high places. She's a big fan of walking on tables and knocking things off of them. If she hears you coming home, she'll sit and cry at the door, greeting you every time. Sometimes, she'll "play dead". You'll be walking through your house and she'll be lying motionless on her back in the middle of the kitchen, hoping that you will pay attention and bend down to rub her chest and face (don't touch her belly if you don't want to activate her bunny-kicks). She's not the chattiest but she definitely has a voice and will make sure you hear it.

She lived with my family for her first few years, with multiple cats and dogs. She had a problem when it came to peeing in the litterbox; she would always do it on the side or somewhere around the litterbox instead. They surrendered her to me where she continued to have the same problems. I also have a multi-animal household. Immediately I took her to the vet and treated her for a bladder infection, switching her food over to urinary health and keeping an eye on her. When it didn't stop, I continued to do research and contact my vet regarding this issue. She has been doing it all her life, but doesn't do it consistently. Sometimes she'll pee in the litterbox for a few days, and then the next few days she won't. It always seems to be when she gets upset about me one of the other animals doing something she doesn't like. There's no other way I can describe it. There's no other way I've been able to track it. All of this research and work has brought us to the conclusion that it's a behavioral issue and not medical. This is why I believe that she will thrive the most in a one-animal household, where she is the sole furbaby. She wants ALL of the attention, and if she doesn't get it or sees another animal getting it instead of her, she will grow very jealous (and go to pee outside the litterbox). I believe whole-heartedly that if she was the sole baby, this problem would cease altogether.

As much as I hate having to give her up, I am unable to give her the one-on-one attention and treatment she requires. I have other animals in the house and she is fed up with not being the sole baby of the household. I'm doing this because I know that it will give her an opportunity to live out the rest of her life in the lavish, pampered, only-child style she deserves.
