Ladybird came to us a little over 7 years ago. We adopted her from Empty-Cages, who rescued her out of the ASPCA right before she was to be euthanized. Apparently her owner had passed away and she was sent to the ASPCA.
Our Vet said she was probably about 3-5 years old, but was sort of skinny and looked to be not especially well cared for. She was skittish and scared of all hands coming towards her and would run away or hide when people tried to pet her. Its was sad, she had clearly been through something, but her unbelievable sweetness and mellow-ness shown through all of that.
After a spending time with her and getting her to trust people she opened up, and once that happened her true self could be seen. Ladybird is the most incredibly sweet, mellow and loving cuddly little lady cat ever. She's sweet to the core, super low maintenance, and easy going. She is really THE BEST CAT! I love her so much I spent over a year going to different doctors to try to find one that would say my younger daughter's health issues weren't caused by our cat. She is just the greatest animal, sweet, easy, loving, but also super low-key.
She is now incredibly outgoing with pretty much anyone we have visit, she is great with our kids, but will sometimes run away if a tail is pulled, but never ever aggressive or mean. She love to play with our leather mice, sneak up and pounce on inanimate objects and bat toys around. She is cuddly but not overwhelmingly so, perfectly balanced personality! She is an incredible little animal.
She is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. She's really easy going, low maintenance and super sweet. We love her a lot and are very sad to have to re-home her. Please be in touch if you or anyone you know is interested in giving her a loving safe forever home.
