Hi, my name is Patience, and I'm an easygoing and sociable Bombay/ black DSH mix little girl who was born in March 2016. Like a typical playful, inquisitive, and affectionate Bombay mix, I have a shiny black-patent-leather coat and mesmerizing copper-penny eyes. I love other cats and children to play with, and my foster mom predicts that I will also do well in a home with dogs after a slow introduction.
I'm one kitten who will sit back and assess a situation before jumping right into the action. Hey, I'm no impulsive dummy, and that's good. However, I LOVE my cat toys and am very playful. Once I'm exhausted from playing, I will cuddle up with you or walk circles around you for affection. I guess you know that Bombays are often called Velcro cats because they get so attached to their humans, and I'm no exception!
I was one of a group of 10 kittens, including my siblings Paige and Finlay, who were living under a Museum District building and were trapped when we were just 6 weeks old. Yes, I had hardscrabble beginnings, but that just makes me ever more appreciate my current safe haven as well as brimming food and water dishes.
As much as I love living with the kids, adults, and other kittens in my foster home, I'm ready for a lifetime home of my own. I'm just an easygoing and loving chip of onyx, and I know that I'd be a great addition to your family because I get along with everybody. Won't you come adopt me (and my twin sister Paige, for that matter!)?
Please don't be superstitious of black cats! Buster's Friends makes a concerted effort to rescue black cats and kittens from shelters because they are five times more likely to be euthanized than any other color of cat. However, many people who have previously had a black or Bombay mix cat end up adopting another one because they seem to have such wonderful personalities and are emotionally stable and well balanced. To find out more about Bombay mixes, watch the attached 2-3 minute You Tube video that appeared on Animal Planet or Google "Cats 101 Bombay."
Patience is updated on shots, spayed, dewormed, microchipped, FIV/ FeLV negative, and ready for her indoor-only home. No de-clawing permitted. Her adoption fee is $125 for kittens 9 months old and younger, cash or check payable to Buster's Friends.
