What can I say? I'm searching for someone truly special. Are you a caretaker at heart? Do you have a soft spot for the underdog, or in this case, under-kitty? Well, please read on.

My name is Grizzly. I was adopted as a tiny kitten and lived happily with my family until that unfortunate divorce. Since then, I've been bounced around from place to place, which has been hard and stressful for me. At some point, I put on some extra pounds, but now I'm on a weight loss plan and have already shed some weight. Yay! I'll need someone who can support me on my weight loss journey. Being overweight, I have some mobility limitations—I struggle with jumping onto furniture and prefer a lower-sided litterbox. Another issue is that I'm incontinent with my bowel movements. It's not behavioral; rather, I sometimes can't make it in time or am unaware it's happening, or perhaps a combination of both.

If you can see past my challenges, you'll find I have the best personality. I'm shy at first, but then I blossom into a sweet, tubby gentleman. I adore tummy rubs, chin scratches, and being brushed. I'm also quite tolerant of having all my many nails trimmed.

Do you have room in your heart for a calm, couch-napping, sweet chubby kitty?
