Hi everybody. I’m not sure if my foster mom introduced me or not, so allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Ozzie, and I’m about 3 years old and I’m a retired racing greyhound. I was pretty fast in my day (if I do say so myself), but now I enjoy relaxing with people and going for walks.
I got to my new home yesterday, and I’ve been so busy with meeting my foster parents, and my 5 foster cats. I really like my new foster parents, they are so nice to me. They take me for a lot of walks, and got me a great new bed. My foster dad sometimes calls me ‘Wiz’ – he said it is something to do with a movie about a wizard that has some relation to my name, and has nothing to do with peeing.
The cats are great. I was quite nervous about them at first, I wanted to make a good impression on them so they would see that I like cats.
The orange cat is a great teacher. He taught me to respect a cat’s space, and that if I get close when I’m not wanted, that it can result in a smack and a hiss. He is friendly though, I know now that I have to let him come to me. He likes to sniff my feet after I come in from a walk.
The brown tabby cat is my favorite. She is very pretty, and really seems to like me. The very first time I met her, she gave a little hiss, but since then, she has been visiting me a lot. She will come right up to me and sniff me. I even got a kiss from her.
She likes to sit next to me and watch when I sleep (my foster parents told me that… I wouldn’t know otherwise).
Two of the other cats just like to watch me. They aren’t scared of me or anything, but they like to watch from higher up places to see what I’m up to. I will get them all to love me soon, I just know it. The fifth cat just stays out of sight. I’ve seen him (sometimes) jump up on the kitchen counter. He’s not really allowed up there, but he doesn’t seem to know that. My foster dad says he thinks the cat has Alzheimer’s (I don’t even know what that means) since he constantly forgets that he isn’t allowed up there.
Anyway, I know this was a lot of babbling, but I’ve just had so much happen in the last day that I had to get it all out. I’m planning on doing a lot of sleeping today, and I hear that I’ll be going on a few more walks. I’ll try not to talk to much in the future, but I’m so happy right now, and one day I’ll have a forever home (my foster parents said so!). Until then, I’ll just try my hardest to be a good dog.
