Aren't I quite the cutie? I'm a sweet little boy named Georgie. I'm a special boy who needs an especially loving home. The way I came to live at Friends is an interesting story, which all began with me joining up with some other homeless cats in a feral colony. But our caregiver quickly learned that I'm not feral at all - just a stray boy looking for love. OH, and belly rubs! I LOVE belly rubs! I also like to be held like a baby. I also like to chat - I'm quiet the chatty cat, in fact. That almost rhymes - te-he! I'm awfully funny to boot. I mean, seriously, a cat who LOVES to get his belly rubbed - perhaps I've spent a bit of time with a dog or two in my past. Now, you might not notice all those unique things about me upon first meeting - or even second or third. I can take a while to warm up to a person. That's what happens when you live on the streets -- you become a little cautious. The other thing you should know about me is that I was recently diagnosed as diabetic. The volunteers at FOHA took me for blood work when I started to lose weight, and that's when they discovered it. So I'll need an adoptive home that can help monitor my glucose, which may include prescription food and/or insulin shots. They're easy to give, though, promise. Just a little pin prick, really, and since they are administered when a kitty is eating -- for good canned food, trust me, I won't mind! Can you give a special boy like me a chance?
