Facts about Chica

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 110108
  • Hair: Unknown

Chica is a cute, sassy girl who loves to play. If you have a kitty wand, she'll run across the room and "hide" so she can run back and pounce on it. She'll play this game forever. She is a really fun cat but definitely has an independent side. She prefers petting on her terms and likes making her own decisions as far as being handled, so if you're looking for a cat you can cuddle whenever you want, she may not be right for you. However, if you prefer playful cats with lots of personality, she may just be your girl! She has been doing fine with her cat rooommates but prefers cat friends who will respect her personal space. Any kids in her new home should be older and understand that she may not like to be petted all the time.
