Tootsie Roll's Story...
Candy, did someone say candy? Who doesn’t love candy? Well, even if you don’t have a sweet tooth, you will love this candy cat! Meet Tootsie Roll, or Tootsie for short, the super sweet mama cat, who took great care of her babies after her owner put her and her 5 babies in a cardboard box and put them in the backyard because she decided she couldn’t be bothered with them anymore…how sad is that? The babies were only 1 week old when, thankfully, a nice person got in touch with us and we happily brought the entire family into a nice safe foster home for the babies to grow up and be ready to find their forever homes! So now, months after Tootsie's babies have all been adopted, Tootsie still waits patiently for HER turn for a forever home too.

Tootsie is a gorgeous tabby tuxedo with beautiful, bright, green eyes. Her coat is thick and plush, and she wears cute little white socks. Her foster mom says: She is so pretty, I just love looking at her. She's like 'eye candy'!

Tootsie has a generally quiet demeanor. She doesn’t mind being held, but doesn’t seek it out. She loves to be petted, and will jump up on the couch next to you, or into your lap, to watch TV or read with you. When you walk into the room she will rub against your legs, then fall on her back, as if to say "okay, it's belly rub time, so pet me, pet me!"

Tootsie is a sweet girl who loved hanging out with her babies; however, she can be frightened of and unfriendly towards other adult cats. Tootsie, therefore, will be happiest in a home where she can be the queen of her own castle, at least as far as the feline population goes. She has sporadically been around children and seems to be okay with them. If you're looking for a low-maintenance, no-drama, companion kitty for a one-on-one relationship, Tootsie Roll is looking for you! Give us a call soon and come and meet her!

Tootsie Roll’s estimated date of birth is 1/5/15. Her adoption fee of $115 includes: comprehensive vet exam, FVRCP vaccination, rabies vaccination, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.
