And the title really isn't hyperbole. I have never seen a 5-month-old (aka adolescent) kitten who is still this sweet and snuggly - usually at this age they have become "wild children" and don't get settled and affectionate again until they get closer to full adulthood.
She was abandoned in a sealed box outside of my apartment building last week. I dutifully took her to get scanned for a microchip - if she'd been a shelter cat, she would have had one - but to no avail. I already have 2 cats, and my apartment only allows 2 cats per unit, so I cannot keep her. She is very much a "with you" kind of cat - follows you around from room to room, purrs if you so much as *look* at her, wants to be in your lap and just the loviest little thing you can imagine.
She's also really pretty!( Collapse )
She will need to be spayed and vaccinated still, but I have already treated her for fleas, ear mites, roundworms, hookworms, and heartworms, so no worries about introducing her to other cats. She and my cats are still in negotiations about who gets to go where, eat what, and how they interact, but she has shown absolutely *no* aggression towards them, so she should be fine in a multi-cat household. I don't have dogs or kids, so I can't say for sure how she'd be with them, but given how affectionate and mellow she is, I suspect she would learn to adjust quickly and well.
Please give this darling girl a home for the holidays!
