I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Hi! I'm Maggie, and I'm one beautiful, bright-eyed cat. I’ve lived at FOHA most all of my life, and I’m finally ready to find my family. See, I came to FOHA as a kitten, and I lived in a foster home with canines who thought they ruled the roost. As I grew from kitten to teen, I left my foster home and came to the FOHA cattery. I spent most of my time hiding – and, to be honest, I didn’t help ingratiate myself to people. I would find a place to hiss or hide, letting people know that I simply wanted to be left alone. It took me some time to even warm up to my feline roommates. The folks at FOHA struggled to understand what would make me a happy cat. Apparently I needed time to learn who I am as a cat and to gain confidence that I am worthy of love. Recently, I have turned a corner – and I’m anxiously accepting pets. Instead of hiding away at the top of the cat tree, I’m down in the “pet zone” so I can interact with the other cats and people. Once you begin to pet my body, I’ll stick my bottom in the air and start rubbing against whatever’s nearby – I really do enjoy pets! Who’d have guessed? I look at people now with love, not fear. I’m ready to find my forever home. The folks at FOHA are guessing that I’d do best in a home without a lot of commotion or loud, boisterous activity. I’m not likely to want to be picked up, so I’ll need a family who understands my independence but has time to give me gentle affection. My beautiful, bright amber eyes just reflect the light so beautifully, like a true gem. My spirit’s golden, too, and ready to shine in a loving home.
