APPY
Creature Companions|February 2021
Let’s introduce you to our ‘Pet of the Month’, APPY – a golden tabby Siberian cat. With a cute round face, he is just a pawdorable gem for his mom Riddhi. She shares the interesting journey of raising her li’l furr ball with us. Excerpts...

WHEN AND HOW DID APPY COME IN YOUR LIFE?

On 7th September, 2018, my dad visited his friend’s home for some work, where he saw a small kitten trying to play. At that very moment, he fell in love with him and, when asked, he got to know that his friend’s cat had given birth to these kittens and they were up for adoption. On the same day, dad adopted him and Appy entered our lives like a blessing to our family with his cute little paws and eyes.

WHAT DO YOU GENERALLY FEED HIM?

Appy has a fix diet. He is very choosy about his food. As he has underbite teeth, he is unable to self pick his food so I prefer feeding him myself. He mostly eats wet food than dry. He loves eating sweet and fresh grind coconut but in a very small quantity.

HOW DOES APPY LIKE TO SPEND TIME WITH U?

Appy is very much attached to all family members. He always wants us to communicate with him. He enjoys his evening walks with us. Appy expresses his love by kissing. He likes patting and rolls round to rub his tummy.

HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF HIS GROOMING NEEDS?

Grooming is done at home. We bath him once in 15 days, which is a very difficult task as he hates water. Since his coat is dense and long, combing hair twice a day is must to avoid knots. We brush his teeth and clean his eyes with warm water to remove stains.
