Gentille is a Sweetheart Who Seeks A Warm Lap
Gentille is Stunning, Sweet, and Petite
My name is Gentille, which is French for nice, kind, lovely. I am all that and more. I am a petite (7 pounds), stunning girl. My white coat has some very special tiger markings and I have the most amazing tail known to feline kind: it is striped and beautiful. I know for a fact there is not a more beautiful or striking cat in the entire world.
Despite my beauty, I am not looking for a life filled with high-society parties. Not at all. I am seeking a quiet household with a warm lap or two (or three) to lounge on. Men, women, it doesn't matter as long as your laps are warm and inviting and I get a lot of petting and kisses.
As you will learn when we meet, I can never resist cuddling with someone who is lying down. Stretch yourself out on the floor, a sofa, or your bed and I promise to come running (while singing—I mean meowing— to get your attention). My foster parents love this routine and my soft, white fur and tender purring seem to calm them right down. There is nothing better in this world than an afternoon siesta/TV time with me serving as the blanket!
That is not to say I am all about lazing around. I may be a mature, middle-aged feline, but I still have some kitten in me. After all, eleven is the new five. I still enjoy a daily romp and I can’t resist my favorite toy, the turbo scratcher (a round thing with a ball in a tube and some corrugated cardboard on top for scratching). When I play with it, my foster mom and dad always laugh. I don’t understand why they think it is funny that I push that ball around with so much enthusiasm. I feel good and I like to play.
Although I could share your home with respectful dogs and perhaps another cat, I think I would really prefer to be the center of your attention. I am a feline, after all, and a rather royal one at that.
Speaking of royalty, you should know that I like to eat Royal Canin low-protein food. It protects my kidneys, as does lots of fresh water from my cat fountain. Both of these will keep me active and healthy as I gracefully age. I have many good years ahead to spend with you. So call now! Let’s not waste a minute of the future we could have together.
