Facts about Chiquita

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 25989
  • Hair: Short
This adorable little lady is Chiquita, a ticked tabby that is about 1 1/2 years old and would just love a home of her own to enjoy herself in. Chiquita came to us from our Newark facility after she was turned in by her family, because they had no time for her. Little Chiquita has been hoping ever since to be noticed by a loving family that does have time for her and will care for her forever. Chiquita is a kittenish little lady that has a feisty and devilish side to her, but it's all fun and games for her. She is super playful and silly and even tends to play a little rough sometimes, so it's best that she go to a home with no small children. Chiquita has a big personality for such a petite little cat and everyone just loves her as soon as they meet her. She has no shyness about her and makes friends easily. She gets along with other cats but likes to "mess" with them, so she will need to live with a cat that is up for her antics. This beautiful little lady is ready to go off and start life over again with a family that will cherish her forever. File#25989 1/11/16
