Description: Maria is a gorgeous classic Calico kitty. She has soft, white fur with spots of orange and black. Some of her orange spots have pretty tabby stripes throughout. Her eyes are gold and green and she has a bright pink nose!
Personality: Maria is a hard-working mama who is ready for a home of her own. She has raised her four adorable kittens (Ashe, Penn, Vika, and Pete) and an orphaned kitten (Andre) and is now looking to find her forever family. She currently lives in a foster home with two large dogs and three other cats. She gets along well with all, but is not afraid to let the dogs know who is boss if they get too close to her kittens!
Maria absolutely loves getting attention from her foster mom, she is a very sweet and affectionate kitty. She likes being held and often rubs up against her foster mom to let her know that she would like some love. Maria returns the favor with sweet purrs and nuzzles. Even though she is a mom, she is still young herself and likes to play with toys right alongside her kittens. This stunning, interactive, and sweet girl would be a great addition to almost any home!
Animal History: Maria was turned into a local shelter, after her original owner learned that Maria was pregnant. A few days later she gave birth to 4 kittens and even took in an orphaned kitten as one of her own. When the kittens were just a couple of days old, the whole family moved in with their IAR foster and has been there since.
