What's that lovely ru-u-u-u-mble, you ask? It's Mia's thunderous purr! We're pretty sure it can be heard within a 5 mile radius of wherever she happens to be sitting. She turns it on when she wants to be picked up and then keeps it going sweet and strong when she gets all settled in your lap...her happy place! 

Mia deserves a life filled with warm snuggles and love. She was brought to the shelter emaciated and with a front leg that had been broken and healed improperly. Although that leg is now a little weaker than her others, it doesn't bother her at all and she can scamper around fairly normally. 

Due to a neurological condition, Mia sometimes moves her head in a wobbly way. This condition doesn't worsen over time or cause health issues. It just means her coordination is a bit off because of the way her brain developed. Her head movements and her slightly different leg give her a unique and endearing style of moving that her foster describes as a beautiful dance. It has been known to cause people to swoop her up for cuddles when they see her merrily making her way across the room! 

Like many kittens, Mia is a curious girl who has such fun pouncing on toys and scoping out the ultimate in kitty excitement...the ever-fascinating empty box! She definitely has that cute kitten playfulness, but also enjoys curling up for a nap. She gets along very well with other cats and is super tidy around her litterbox.

If you think you're just the one to love and cuddle with this beautiful gem and to give her the wonderful home she's waiting for, contact us today. Mia is excited at just the thought and has her purr motor ready...listen closely and you may just hear it singing its joyful song!
