"Hi! I'm Didí! I've lived in the ADAPO cat shelter for two years, since my owner was evicted and we all became homeless. I've always put up with the other cats here, but I don't care for them much, and I'd much prefer to be the only diva - sorry, cat in the household."
"I'm a neutered female, about 5 years old, looking for a home where I'll be loved and appreciated. We white cats have to be very careful about exposure to the sun. That's difficult; I mean, basking in the warm sunshine is my job description! But my ears get burnt very easily so I should stay in the shade much more.
Must dash - I've just spotted someone looking for me to put suncream on my ears again. Filthy stuff! It will take me all afternoon to wash that off again!"
