Elsie reminds her foster mom of a Holstein cow, hence her name. She's a typical kitty, very playful, inquisitive, and happy-go-lucky, and has a funny little quirk of liking to lick her mom's feet. She gets along well with the other kitties in her foster home, especially her brother Arnie, so her foster mom wants them to be adopted together. They hang-out as a pair, play together, and seek comfort in each other if they get scared; they're both a bit on the shy side, so may take a little while to settle into their new home. They're two peas in a pod, so will double the joy for the family lucky enough to adopt them. Adopting a young adult is a 10-20 year commitment, is beneficial because their personalities are developed, and will provide many years of love, devotion, entertainment, and companionship. Elsie's ideal humans are those who crave the fun, energy, joy, and inquisitiveness of a young adult cat, and will happily include her in their daily activities. She'll do best in a quiet, adult home (no small, active children) with her brother Arnie and older children to keep her company. With a loving family, she'll be a wonderful and constant companion for many years. Born in October 2012, Elsie is a white with black spots bicolor DMH female, is spayed, fully vaccinated (FVRCP and rabies), tested negative for FeLV, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped for identification. She uses her litterbox and scratching post, and must be indoors-only. Please contact Elsie's foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (408) 427-2949 (voicemail) for more information about adoption; messages returned within 24 hours.
