IMG_0160I’m Stewie and I am a 9 year old black domestic short-haired cat. I was born on February 17th, 2005. Dana¬†adopted me and my little brother from another mother from the Humane Society in May, 2005. She named me after Stewie Griffin, the maniacal baby from the Family Guy. I was 12 weeks old when she brought me home. I was very sick when I arrived at the shelter and needed to be nursed back to health because I had a very bad upper respiratory infection. Thankfully, I pulled through and taken to my forever home with my little brother, Gizmo.

Some of my favorite things in the world are hair ties and socks. I steal my mom’s all the time. I put the hair ties in my food dish and hide the socks in random places throughout the house. I think she enjoys searching for them.

I am a very vocal cat and never hesitate to let my mom know if I want something. If she sleeps in too late, I make sure to wake her up by sitting next to her on the bed and meowing as loudly as possible until she wakes up. If that doesn’t work, I poke her face with one claw. I’m very careful not to hurt her! I just make sure she feels it and knows that I’m here! Most of the time I will let her go back to sleep after she feeds me, but sometimes that is just unacceptable. As soon as she’s awake, I make sure to curl up nearby her and take my morning nap.

I suffer from separation anxiety and I don’t like it if mom is gone too long. I’m also afraid of a lot of things. I take a while to warm up to new people and I don’t like loud noises. Other than that, I am a very happy cat and I live a very leisurely life.
