Facts about Cagney

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Cagney is considered a Sun-Cat - which means she is great with other cats.
Cagney is a grey female barely out of her kitten stage with incredibly big, beautiful, eyes and the most adorable pink little ears which seem to set off her coat, and remind you of the plush, soft, cuddly toy store kitten you remember cuddling with from way back when. She also owns an unusually thick, beautiful, racoon-like tail that for some reason reminds me of Davy Crocket, one that she is rightfully proud of and spends an inordinate amount of time grooming. Strangely, however, for some reason her beauty doesn't completely translate in pictures though she is absolutely stunning in person.

Along with her sister, Lacey, Cagney was trapped as a kitten. After a visit to the vet she was given all vaccinations along with a clean bill of health before being delivered to a shelter in Brooklyn along with Lacey. Fortunately for Lacy, her stay at the shelter was brief as she left her sister alone to fend for herself amongst the other homeless felines. Unfortunately, she was picked on and swatted at by virtually every other cat at the shelter during group socialization sessions. Mind you, these sessions were intended to not only socialize the animals with the volunteers, but to give them free play time and a few hours out of the crate each day. Unfortunately, Cagney, submissive and playful, was singled out, picked on and bullied by virtually every other cat at the shelter as she soon became terrified and terribly withdrawn.

Thankfully, a foster had taken her in, and after a couple of weeks of incessant hiding, she has blossomed into a sweet, playful and engaged cat who, still not completely out of her kitten stage, has managed to recover that spirit in spite of what she's already endured during her short life. Although she has made magnificent and rapid strides in her socialization, during play time and petting she can get overly excited and as a result her love bites can be a little bit more passionate than desirable, though this behavior is rapidly becoming a thing of the pass.

Her present foster will be unable to care for her for a few months, and Cagney is in need of someone who can assume that responsibility temporarily or until adoption, and help Cagney continue on her journey toward a forever home.
