I’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.
