Gentle, Sweet, Ball Player
You won't see Waddles waddling... but wiggling? You betcha! She'll wiggle around on her back looking extremely adorable to get your attention. Works every time! Then she's ready for some chin and head rubs, she loves those!
Waddles is shy initially, but she learns to trust after a short time and then she wants to be near you, but not on you. We do think she has cuddle potential once she has the chance to really get to know you. Waddles is playful, but mostly low-key. She'll expertly bat a ball back and forth with you, stalk wadded up paper towels and play with feather wands. But, mostly she likes to chill out with her people! When she wants you to notice her she will take action in a subtle sort of way. She's been known to peek around from behind the laptop her human is using and then do her signature flop, back roll combo with paws stretched out...hard for a computer screen to compete with that level of cuteness!
Dogs frighten Waddles and she'll lash out if they get too close. She finds kids pretty scary too. Adult women are her favorite companions, but she might become comfortable with a male friend over time especially if they come bearing tuna. She has a penchant for it and anything edible that's fish flavored.
Waddles would do well in a laid back home with someone who will play with her regularly and who would enjoy cozy nights chilling out in the company of a peaceful, sweet kitty. If Waddles sounds like the ideal cat for you, why wait for wonderful Waddles' wiggles? Contact us to meet her today!
