Meet Miss T-Rex
Life will not be contained.
Life breaks free.
Life finds a way.
And so does Miss T-Rex 🦖 😻
This special lady is looking for an extra special home, filled with unlimited affection, knowledge, tasty snacks, and an assortment of toys. Miss T-Rex is bursting with life, and I can’t wait to share her positive vibes with you!
It’s hard to describe Miss T-Rex’s personality in one short blurb because, well, she has a lot of it! From her rumbling purrs that can be heard from outer space, to the way she likes to redecorate your home by moving blankets; Rex is nothing short of entertaining. She’ll rip around carrying a toy, or shoot into a crinkle tube, and pop out the other side with zest. Fun is second nature to her, just like her meerkat stance!
Why does she stand like that, you ask? While T-Rex is not lacking on any personality or toes (she has quite a few extra), what she is missing is her radius bones. Miss T-Rex has a number of congenital skeletal deformities in her front limbs. However, they don’t cause her any pain, and she has adapted better than ever expected. Her new home will need to make minimal adjustments to support her daily life, but most importantly be understanding of her differences and be proactive with her future.
“[Miss T-Rex was] so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.”
– Dr Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park
Often forgetting to set limitations for herself, Miss T-Rex is eager to learn and test the boundaries of her growing strength. When it comes to personal space boundaries, well, she has none. She feels quite strongly that she should be involved in the majority of day to day activities, especially if it involves relaxing with you. Once there is a T-Rex in your home, you shall never experience loneliness again. She may be a mover and a shaker, but this girl knows how to cuddle.
Not forgetting her furry counterparts, Miss T-Rex is also very fond of other felines. She puts on a bit of a tough girl act when first meeting them, but soon realizes how much better it is to be friends. Her days would be dull without a buddy to play with, groom, and plot world domination with. Her outlook on dogs is 50/50. She’s interested in them and unbothered by their general presence, but she prefers if they are not at all interested in her.
Miss T-Rex has a large heart (both physically and emotionally) and is looking for a family to share her affection with. She’ll bring ample love and laughter, and of course- a lot of toes 🐾🐾
Miss T-Rex, ready for endorsement 🦖
