Facts about Maura

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10595202
  • Hair: Short

This beautiful tortie comes to us from Farmington way.  Her owner was diagnosed with a terminal illness and turned in a couple of kitties to the local kill shelter.  She thought Maura could be pregnant but said she did not let her outside.  Of course she sent in a picture of her outside on her patio when I was asked to take her!  Maura was not pregnant and has since been spayed, but she starts out very shy and takes a few weeks to warm up and trust you.  When that happens she starts talking and purring.  She does love brushing, but at first you have to approach her; she does not ask for attention for a little while.  She did live with another female kitty before but has been hissy at my home, due to fear and shock at the changes in her life and space; so another kitty should be fine with proper introduction.  Maura is about three years old, has a mild positive for FIV and is negative for FeLV, is spayed, up to date on shots, micro chipped, and treated for parasites.  Maura is Heartland #10425CL. And obviously she LOVES to have her picture taken!!!
