Sweet Sherbert is certainly a fitting name for this bright orange lady! Like her namesake, Sherbert is as sweet and relaxing on a hot summer day (or cold winter evening) as a big bowl of orange sherbert.
Don't mistake Sherbert's calm and relaxed demeanor for shyness - she is quite comfortable when meeting first-time visitors. She just prefers to lay back and relax as she observes her admirers! She could coexist with other cats if they respect her space, but would be very happy as your only too.
For more information, please email her foster parent at email@example.com.
Her foster mom says:
'She is a playful cat and enjoys being pet. She's becoming really sweet and like to lay in the bed with me. She doesn't like to be startled so if you have little ones that have lots of energy she will need a nice spot of her own to go and relax and stay out of the excitement. She's very playful and like to paw at you sometimes. She lets you know when she is hungry and she likes to sit in the window and watch the birds!'
Age: 2 years
