Misty is the perfect companion for another cat. She loves to play and run around. Everything is a toy to her—a grocery bag, plastic wrapping, an empty paper towel roll—you name it and she will make it into a game. If you are looking for a companion for a cat you already have, Misty is the girl for you. And, double bonus, If your cat is a little over-weight, try the Misty-diet. She will run the pounds off of your cat.
Misty is more comfortable with other cats than she is with people. Her first instinct is to be suspicious of new comers. With patience, though, she turns into a loving companion for both you and your cat. Once she is comfortable, she likes to plop down on the floor, lying on her back and wriggle around. Not sure if she is scratching her back or showing what a crazy girl she is.
Misty may have a difficult transition when she goes to an adoptive home, but so her new people will need to be patient and let her adjust at her own pace. She will need to start in a room of her own and her people will need to wait for her to come to them.
Misty is an especially good match for a male cat. She gets along with most female cats also, but male cats seem to really ‘get her.’ Right now in her foster home she primarily hangs out with a big (huge) orange tabby who is about 6 years old. She is not partial to him though… she will play with anyone furry. Also, she is very cat-like in the sense that she likes to sit in small spaces—on the bookshelf next to the books, in a box but not so much in a cat carrier.
Misty will not do well in an active home. She needs a quiet, low-key household without young children. Older children who are patient and sensitive to her needs would be fine.
Misty was born in June 2013, is spayed, up to date on vaccines and tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. She has been micro chipped.
