Nutmeg's Story...
Hi there! I'm Nutmeg, and I am a "long termer" at Young at Heart. I would love nothing more than to find a family of my own. I would love to be only pet and queen bee, and I would be great for companionship with an older person who would just loves the company of cats. Or in my case, one cat! I had a rough life before coming to Young at Heart, so I would do best in a very quiet home, with gentle hands. I am very loving, but I really need someone who understands that I am independent and love on my own terms. I don't ask for much else, as I am perfectly content with some yummy food, a snuggly bed, and a friend who understands the quiet joy of providing a peaceful haven for an old kitty getting used to the good life.
