Meet Tori #marble-swirl-girl

I'M A REAL GEM TO BE AROUND
DOB 6/1/22
During the dog days of summer, "Marble Swirl" makes you think of ice cream, but I'm a #marble-swirl-girl because I have gorgeous dark marble swirls (instead of mackerel stripes) on my sides. Mew! Mew, everyone! I'm Tori, and I'm a super-sweet, vocal brown 'Classic tabby' gal who loves to rub up against Foster Meowmy's legs and invite her to pet me. Admittedly, I'm not a lap cat yet, but I will jump in Foster Meowmy's lap so she can scratch my cheeks, chin, and ears. Boy, howdy! That feels great!
I birthed my six kittens at a country house near a dumping ground in Cleveland, where I was among many friendly but unfixed stray cats. Thank heavens that HOPE took all my family into their program to find us fantastic homes! I probably had been someone's pet who got misplaced because I adjusted easily to being an indoor cat. I especially like all the indoor amenities, like climate control, brimming food and water bowls, and a cardboard scratch pad to nap on after I've sharpened my claws.
Other than a few initial warning hisses, I didn't react negatively to Foster Meowmy's resident cat. Now we're comfy with each other, and I even rub my pheromones on him. However, since I'd had to guard my food when the outdoor stray cats tried to steal my food, I don't like it when he comes near my food. Incidentally, I may be tiny, but my appetite is anything but tiny!
True confessions! I'm somewhat of a "special needs" kitty because I tested positive for heartworms. I'm due to be retested in six months to see if HOPE diagnosed heartworms early enough to clear me up. I was tested when I was barely a year old, and it takes 6-8 months for the larva to develop into an adult, and only about 25% of heartworms reach adulthood in cats. So I'm keeping my paws crossed. There is no treatment for cats who test positive for heartworms as there is for dogs. Instead, I'm to be given a prescription flea/ heartworm preventative like Revolution monthly. Whereas HOPE recommends that all Houston cats stay on flea/ heartworm preventative for their lifetimes, adult heartworms usually die within 2-3 years.
I hope you'll arrange to meet me. Foster Meowmy testifies that I'm "a gem to be around." Come find out for yourself!
