Facts about Violet

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 25826
  • Hair: Short
This absolutely gorgeous young lady is Violet, a young and spunky girl that is a little over a year old. Violet came to us in early December 2015 when the people that were feeding Violet outdoors were evicted from their home, and they were concerned about who would care for young Violet once they were gone. She was a stray living on her own since kittenhood but now that she knows what it's like to be indoors, she is never going back to that life. She is having a ball now, playing, making friends, and curling up on a soft and comfy bed every night. She sure would love to know what it's like to have a home of her own though. Violet has a great and goofy personality. She is playful and personable, but when she's had enough and wants to move on, she puts her ears back a little and struts away. Violet is very loving though so don't be fooled by her cattitude. She would do best in a home with more mature children and doesn't seem to mind other cats at all. Violet would keep you laughing and bring you lots of love and joy forever if you'll just give her a chance. File#25826 12/5/15
