Breed/Color: DSH/ Orange Tabby
Marigold is an adorable bundle of orange fluff looking for a family to call her very own. At 16 months old she is, of course, focused on playing with her toys, as all young kitties are. She would do well in a active home as she is a very active girl herself. And more people means more attention!!! If you are a family with children, the kids should be of an age where they can identify and understand the signals given by a kitty through it's body language. For example, after 30 minutes of fun, energetic playing Marigold's tail will be thumpity-thumping on the floor. This means it's probably not a good time to pick her up - at least until she's had some downtime to catch her breath and relax (not that different from humans, right?). Speaking of energy, Marigold has a lot of it so play time is a MUST!!! She would also love to have a young feline playmate to join her in her games so if you have a young kitty (2 years or younger) at home Marigold may be the perfect mate. Older cats likely would not be a good match with Marigold as they would not be up for her level of activity or play style.
Little Marigold is easy to please. Her most favorite things in the world are the laser light, Da bird, the turbo scratcher, tuna treats, and watching birdies out the window. Those who play games with her are rewarded with a lap visit afterwards and a slow eye blink of appreciation. Marigold LOVES being talked to and she blinks her eyes as she looks at you and listens to your voice. Not a big talker herself, she will occasionally offer her thought on a subject with a cute kitten chirp.
Marigold likes to show off her skills at using the litter box and makes sure everything is buried as deep as possible. She cleans and sharpens her claws diligently on the corrugated cardboard scratching boxes provided for her (she doesn't understand why a cat would use anything else for their claws because corrugated cardboard is THE BEST!).
Not big into spending long periods of time sitting on a human lap (there is playing to do!), Marigold enjoys being around people and will visit with everyone - giving either a leg rub or a quick walk across your lap to say HI!. She is truly a social, energetic, fun little girl with a zest for life!
