Mia Wants a Home for the Holidays

A 10-year-old kitty’s letter to Santa.


Dear Santa,


My name is Mia, and my foster mom put these stupid antlers on me because she thinks that it’s cute and people will like it. I’m giving her my best grouchy look, but she knows how sweet I am, so she just laughs. I’m not laughing, Santa. But, if it will help find me a forever home, especially in time for the holidays, well, I guess I’ll play along. But I won’t smile.


I’m an adorable and sweet little 10-year-old butterball who loves to be loved. I love being the Princess and I have aptly been dubbed “Princess Mia” in my foster home, so a home that wants to continue to recognize this would be great. Though some might say I’m a Diva, I’m an easy kitty to fall in love with. I’m up for adoption through Young at Heart Pet Rescue, and if I can take a minute of your time, I’d love to tell you all about ME so you can help me find the right family.


Everyone adores me – I love to hang out in whatever room you’re in and I have the BEST purr, if I do say so myself (you can hear it from across the room).  I love to be brushed and my favorite thing is to be brushed while I’m sunbathing – I haven’t met a sunbeam I don’t like!


I love to sleep with you at night and when I’m all comfy and snuggled in, I will demand some belly rubs – I will bump your hand until you give in!!  I LOVE food (hence my svelte figure), and can be a little demanding when I’m hungry. You wouldn’t want me to waste away, now would you? My foster parents are working hard to trim down my big but beautiful physique. When it’s mealtime, I make the cutest run/waddle to the food bowl- my foster mom says it is very endearing.


I’m not all that interested in playing, I’m more content to be your pal and be loved on. So Santa, you can leave toys for the other kitties, because what I would really like for the holidays is to hang my stocking on the mantle in my new home. And if that stocking happened to be embroidered with my name in a fancy font, so be it. I would do best in a home as the only kitty or one other quiet cat like me, as my main goal in life is to collect as much love from my humans as possible!


I’m spayed, up to date on my vaccinations, microchipped, and my blood test results say I’m a healthy girl. I’m located in a private foster home, so Santa, could you please send a nice family to fill out an adoption application so I can have my Christmas wish? I’ll be happy to show you where to rub my tummy, especially if you let me take off these antlers.
