Patches loves toys, wet food and Temptations treats -- they're her favorite! She is not a fan of change, so her adopters should be willing to go very slow with her and give her lots of time to settle in and make herself at home. It will take her a while to warm up, but once she forms a bond with you, she will come to you and ask to be petted or have her head scratched. She's a more independent cat in general, so if you have a quieter home and are looking for a companion who is more low-maintenance, she might be a perfect fit.
This cat is participating in our Shelter Cat Getaway program -- a program designed to give cats a vacation from the shelter and let them enjoy home life while they wait to be adopted. While vacation is fun, there really is no place like home, so please consider adopting one of these deserving cats! As part of this program, their adoption fee is just $50 each (or $75 for a pair)! To learn more about this cat or schedule a time to meet it, please contact Carol at email@example.com or Betsy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
