Meet Kelly! This pretty 4 year old grey tuxedo was living in her home for a few years but sadly a young child moved into the house who was repeatedly hospitalized for allergies. Kelly’s devastated owner said that she was quiet, playful, good with children, loves to be petted, always uses the litterbox, and likes to be brushed. Kelly was nervous and scared in the shelter but found a nice foster home where she could relax and get back to her usual sweet self. Kelly has been in foster care for a few weeks now and is ready to find a loving forever home. She loves people, and wants to be near her foster mom whenever she can, even sitting on her feet and looking up at her with a little chirp saying "please pet me!" Kelly has some cute quirks that make her a special girl. After a thorough vet check, it was discovered that she has some vision issues which makes her hesitant to jump or climb. She also carries herself a bit low in her hind end, but her hips and knees appear strong and healthy. Kelly is a chatty girl and will purr, meow and chirp to communicate. She will also growl but has never acted out in any way, and we feel it's just another way she vocalizes. She loves pets and attention, and rubs against you and wants nothing more than a person to bond with and love. She is unique and charismatic and will bring so much happiness to her new home. Kelly would do best in a quieter household. She seems to be okay with other animals, as long as they're on the more laid-back side, like her. She has great house manners and can't wait to meet you! You can email her foster mom for more info,
