This month, our mascot Jean Luc sat down with long-time Orlando Cat Café resident Monica to talk about kittens, Clear the Shelters and her wish to find a Purrfect Match. Here is their interview (which has been edited for length because these two can talk….and talk and talk and talk….)
JL: Hi Monica and thank you for taking time away from your “kitten duties” to talk to me!
M: It’s my pleasure!
JL: So here we are during Clear the Shelters Month and I thought I would talk to you because you have been at Orlando Cat Café the longest while awaiting your purr-fect match, right?
M: Yes – I have been at the café since April – just a few days after my first birthday, and while I love being here, and especially tending to all the kittens, I would really like to find my forever home!
JL: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
M: Absolutely – I was born on April 13, 2020 and so I am still a youngster. My astrological sign is Aries and cats born on my birthdate tend to be gentle souls and that’s what I think I am. My human friends at the Cat Café sometimes call me stubborn because I come out to play and meet people only when I want to (and not necessarily when they want me to) but that’s because I am I am my own purr-son and make my own decisions. I would also describe myself as confident, loyal and genuine – also Aries traits! I tend to hang out in the back room, not because I am shy but because sometimes 1 or 2 or 3 of the younger kittens need me to mother them and I like feeling needed!
JL: I have seen you comforting the kittens a lot – you really love them, don’t you?
M: I do – it’s just in my nature, I guess. Ideally my Purrfect Match family would adopt me AND a kitten for me to tend to!
JL: And this is the purr-fect time for that during Clear the Shelters Month when adoptions are ½ off!
M: Absolutely – my new family could take me AND a smaller friend home together and get TWO Purrfect Matches for the price of one. And then I would not only get a family of my own, but a kitten of my own too! That would be the greatest!
JL: Thanks for taking the time to talk to me Monica! I think you are a really cool cat and I think that September is going to be the month that you find your Purrfect Match!
M: Thanks Jean Luc, gotta go now! I think one of the kittens needs me…
