I was rescued from the streets, where I grew up with my mom. We think my mom may have been a kitten who was abandoned herself, because she was not without social skills and she taught me those as well. My mom took good care of me, and I am very healthy. I loved to play with my brothers and sisters, but I have recently discovered a wonderful invention called “cat toys”, and I am totally enthralled with these! I love to run and pounce.
I am a very gentle little guy, a little shy at first, but once you’ve experienced me purring on your lap, you will want to take me home. Although I’m a little shy, I have never so much as hissed at anyone, and I really try to please people. I love to be picked up and cuddled! My foster mom says I will be a lap cat because I sit on her lap for long periods of time and just purr and fall asleep. I especially love my cheeks scratched and ears rubbed, and at night I will happily sleep right next to you in bed if you let me.
I’m looking for a loving home that is quiet and has someone who wants to cuddle and play with me. I would also like another kitty friend to play with. I’m just waiting to fill that empty spot on your lap!
