Meet the Boosh
I have another foster cat. Her provisional name is "the Tiny Boosh" (her silly shelter name is "Babooska [sic]," which obviously could not stand), but "La Bouche" is equally appropriate, as girlfriend weighed only 5 lbs. when she got picked up by Animal Control, and she is snacky. For example, I found out she likes garlic bagels when I turned my back on one for all of four seconds this morning.
This is actually working out awesomely because she keeps eating her own meals and Little Joe's, so I'm fattening her up and putting him on a diet at the same time. But she can't stay here forever, even though she's super-cuddly and sweet. Three cats is too many.
More details on the Boosh after the jump.
She's a domestic shorthair, about 7 years old, spayed, fully vetted. She's on some doxycyline right now; it's unclear for what, but it's nothing contagious (she's got some mangy action happening on her ears and nose, probably from living outside for awhile, so that's probably the issue).
She's a tabby; you can't see it so well in these pics, but she is stripey on her legs and tail. Said tail is sort of hilarious, because when she gets mad, not all of it fluffs up; the end stays flat, so it looks like a fir tree. Aw.
No idea where she came from; Elana at SI Feral Initiative thinks someone just curbed her, same as Nikolai. She's obviously acclimated to humans, because she hopped out of her carrier and immediately started weaving around my legs. The Boosh doesn't enjoy getting picked up, but will get right up on your lap, sleep next to your legs, and so on.
She appears to have most of her teeth, and she is not declawed. I am told she's cat-friendly, though there's been no shortage of hissing around here since Friday afternoon. No actual fights, but she's not afraid to wave the paw at Joe (Hobey hides from her) (he's twice her size) (hee).
Any questions? Interested in adopting her? She may get picked up at next week's pet fair in Brooklyn, so you should act fast. Post here or email me directly with any inquiries.
