Once Heather was taken into foster care she appreciated how nice it is to have a warm indoor shelter with a comfy couch to sleep on and lots of human attention. She liked to sit next to her foster mom to get petted, would even roll over for a tummy rub, and she would head-butt her hand to get attention.
In the foster home there were several other resident cats. Her foster mom slowly introduced Heather to them, and they all got along fine. In fact, Heather seemed to enjoy having their company and interacting with them, so we are sure she would like to live in a home with another kitty to be her companion. When adopted into a home with another cat, proper introduction procedures need to be followed to ensure feline harmony. Helpful guidelines for this process can be found on our website.
The adopter should expect that Heather will need extra time and patience to allow her to get relaxed in new surroundings, as she can initially be a bit shy and cautious. She can be spooked by sudden or loud noises and so is best suited to a quiet home without children or dogs.
Heather was born about October 2015. She has been spayed, and tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Heather has a heart murmur and has been seen by a cardiologist. Her heart is healthy and she does not need medications. Long term, she will need a blood test once a year to be sure her heart stays healthy as she grows. She is current on her vaccinations and has been micro chipped.
