Hi, I'm Venom. Yes, a horrible name but apparently popular in the SpiderMan comic culture and my prior owner thought it was a good idea to name me that. So for 8 years I've been saddled with this awful name that really doesn't fit me at all! I like to think of myself more as a cool guy, like a Cosmo or Fonzi or Jules.
My prior owner dumped me at their vet clinic when I didn't fit into their life anymore. The nice people at the vet clinic checked me out and gave me vaccines and everything and called me an "almost senior" but pronounced me healthy, even though I'm middle-aged at 8 years old. They tried to find me a new home, but I was scared and just wasn't showing very well there. I lived at the vet clinic for 10 months until a kind new vet tech took me home to foster me and give me a little more normal life.
I can be shy at first but once I know you I'm VERY friendly. It only took me about a month to acclimate, and now I'm out and part of the family all of the time! Mind you, this family even has barking dogs and active children. But I now sleep with my foster mom and I let everyone pick me up! I've become quite the cuddly social butterfly. I like to play with one of the resident cats but I think overall I would do just fine as an only cat. You know, bond with you one-on-one.
So if you think you have room in your home and your heart for a big ol' handsome guy like me, I'd be very grateful if you'd take me home and make me part of YOUR family - you know, like forever this time. I'm here patiently waiting for you, but can't wait to meet you so you can make me your own - oh, and change my name!
