Facts about Meka

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: A16Y048
  • Hair: Short
Meka is a gorgeous gal with a long dilute calico coat (a softer version of calico featuring shades of grey and peach) and wonderfully fluffy paws! She's sweet and lovable, gentle and mild-mannered, 14 years old and front declawed. Meka originally lived with two other cats, and their human companion no longer was able to care for them. Our volunteer Cat Coaches say that during their handling/personality test with Meka, she was a real love, and they think she'd do well in most cat-loving households, including with children of all ages, due to her acceptance of their handling. She craves attention and will reward visitors with a hearty purr and many head-bumps.
