Do you read every animal adoption website and feel like they say the same things about every animal? I do. They always generally say that the animals are very loving and cuddly and would great with kids. Except for Sugar Plum. Sugar Plum is a surly asshole who wants nothing to do with you.
I am deeply in love with him.
The description of Sugar Plum on the Brooklyn Animal Resource page runs:
Sugar Plum is a 2-year-old who was left outside the shelter. At first, he was very affectionate—he would even get onto your lap. But he must be heartbroken and very depressed because he isn’t eating much and doesn’t want anything to do with us.
Sugar Plum does not give a fuck about you.
Basically, Sugar Plum is behaving like a television depiction of a fashion model. And you know what? It worked. It worked on me, Sugar Plum. I like the way you’re not trying too hard. I like the way you don’t care. And since I am someone who absolutely tries too hard, I’m pretty sure I would spend my entire life trying to make Sugar Plum like me, and it would be pretty enjoyable, probably for both of us. But I can’t, because my apartment does not allow pets. But please, please, someone adopt this cat. Sugar Plum knows sadness, and maybe you could fill the void in his soul with some Fancy Feast.
