We found Patience laying in the street in front of our home, underweight and severely scratched across her face and eye. She has received care and is now happy and healthy. We are unable to keep her because of our other pets. She is about 2 yrs. old, 8-10 lbs. Very sweet, playful, curious, quiet & friendly. Litter boxed trained, spayed with rabies shot. We’ve had Patience with us for about 3 months now and have gotten to know her personality well. We have two cats, both older than she is. Patience seems like she wants to get along with them, but she is very dominant and mostly chases them away. I would say she would do best as an only pet. She’s still young and has a lot of energy, so a home with children or someone who’ll spend time playing with her would be great. She loves to chase string and play with cat toys, rubber balls and a cork on a string are her favorite toys right now. She likes to hide, and has a little pop-up cat cube that she loves to sit in. At least one scratching post is a must for Patience. She likes to scratch and knows to use a scratching post, but if one is not provided she will use the furniture. At bedtime, Patience likes to curl up at the foot of the bed (and sometimes chases your feet under the covers) but will usually move to her own bed in the middle of the night. She likes to be around people, but is also happy to spend time alone and is good at entertaining herself. I think Patience will make a really great long term family pet, please contact me if you can give this nice cat a permanent indoor home.
Patience is currently located in Dingman's Ferry, Pa but I am willing to drive a reasonable distance to NJ to help find her a good home. I can be reached by phone at 914-409-5676.
