UPDATE 10-30-16: Stamps' foster mom here! This lady has come SUCH a long way in the few months she has been with me. At first, she was shy and bolted from loud noises or reaching hands. I suspect that miss Stamps had a less than ideal life before being rescued by PAWS. While she still has her quirks (that I think just make her that more endearing), she has settled in amazingly well. She will always be a sensitive gal who needs a human companion who is patient and sweet.
Stamps is very vocal, especially around feeding time. She will have full kitty chirping conversations with you. She can melt you with her big, beautiful green eyes! I have updated her photos to show what an amazing cat she has become. I know she will make someone SO VERY HAPPY! Once she gets to know and trust you, Stamps really truly loves her human companions.
Most evenings, she sits on the couch with me and sleeps at the foot of my bed. Just recently, she has finally started getting what we call 'The Zoomies!'. In the evening, she suddenly goes into full on play mode and will jump around the house chasing her toys. It's a joy to see (not to mention quite entertaining). Stamps is such a gem and I can't wait for her to find her forever home! Please email me at email@example.com to meet this lovely lady in person!
UPDATE 8/21/16: All hail Queen Stamps! She has been enjoying life in foster care but she is eager to find her forever home. She is a gorgeous young female who is both regal and sweet in demeanor. She prefers to spend her days lounging in the windowsill and enjoying the sunshine. She is a sensitive lady who loves belly rubs and ear scratches. She can be shy and would do best in a quieter home without small children. She would be happy to live with other cats :) Queen Stamps is currently in a foster home in South Philly. If you would like to meet this lovely lady, please email her foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time!
