I am very unsteady on my feet and most of the time, I fall over, but I am very content in my little cage and almost get to my litter box. My foster mommy changes my wee-pads and makes sure I eat and drink every day. I love to be combed and love to snuggle. I purr and purr. Can you give me a forever home where I will always be taken care of? I will love you so much.
