What would you do if there was a raccoon eying your babies? You would grab a baby and run. That is how I ended up at PAWS. That raccoon was scaring me, so I took one baby in my mouth and started across the street. That seemed unwise, so I headed back. I guess some people noticed me looking indecisive and worried. It was my lucky day when I was rescued with that kitten in my mouth. It was an even luckier day because my rescuers went back and looked around and found my other three kittens. We were taken to a warm place with great food and nice people. My kittens grew up fat, sassy and safe and they all got adopted. It’s only me left now and I am looking for a home of my own. One without drama. That one exciting day was enough for my lifetime.
Did you see my picture? I think I am kind of cute with my petite physique and dilute tortie markings. While I would have faced down any ogre to protect my kittens, I have to admit I can be a little shyer with people. Now that I know my foster family, however, I do trust them. I love when they pat me and I will jump into my foster’s lap when she is working on the computer. To be honest, I'm actually looking to order some catnip from Amazon.com, but she thinks I want to cuddle. I do cuddle with her on the sofa when she watches television. I especially like to roll over and show my belly for a good rub.
Although I will never trust a raccoon (and I hope I never see another one), I do like people, and I want some of my own. I prefer a quiet home since too much noise can frighten me, if only momentarily. Kids are fine as long as they don't chase me. Actually, I'm good with anyone who is patient and takes the time to know me and learn the places I like to be rubbed and scratched. I'm also willing to share my people with another cat, as long as s/he is low-key like me. Yes, that pretty much describes me, a brave girl who cannot wait to get to know you and begin my new life in the safety of your home. Does that sound good? I hope so because I want to meet you as soon as possible.
