Meowee. Did you hear me? I want to talk to you! My name is Mumtaz and I am trying to have a conversation. I am a Siamese, so I really do want to talk. We do that. But we are also very balanced cats. We are not shrill, we are not crazy, and we like people. I love people. I had the same owner for 13 years until she got too old to care for me. I miss her. But I am trying to be realistic. I can’t be with her, so I need to find a new home. Did you hear me? I am talking to you. Meoooow, Mrumph.
Let me tell you a bit more about me. I am a purebred, Applehead, Siamese cat. I am like the cat that came to this country from Siam, as a present from the king. I am the real royalty as you must realize since I have the same name as the queen for whom the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan erected the Taj Mahal. I do not, however, need a jewel incrusted palace, or even a throne. I just need you and your love.
And you will love me because I am beautiful, mature and mellow. I like to sleep in the sun or in a warm place like on the radiator. I like to talk, but I can also listen. And nothing pleases me more than a nice warm lap. I would be delighted to find a nice mature person or people like me. I have had no experience with other cats or animals, so I should probably be your only pet. I think I could be respectful of children if they were nice to me. Mainly, I want you to know that I have been through a lot, including separation from my loved ones and introduction into a very different environment here at PetSmart. So, can you be patient with me when we meet? I am going to be a bit hesitant and shy around you. But I promise that if you adopt me and take me home, I am going to be so grateful that I’m sure we will become close buddies.
By the way, you do not need to build me a Taj Mahal or even offer me a throne. I will be delighted to just have a place on your hearth (ok radiator). I have too many good years left to get stuck here in a window at PetSmart. I want to climb out of this window and into your warm lap. And rest assured, when I climb into your lap, I will be feeling love and joy toward you. And not just because ‘tis the season. No, because I really want a new home. So come and meet me and we can be together to celebrate New Year’s Eve, the new year, and our new life together. Yes, I want a new forever home. And this time, please let it really be forever.
