Facts about Walnut

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10809952
  • Hair: Short

Personality Type:  Professional Cuddler: can be found on or near you at all times.

Description: Walnut lives for love & affection. She also likes to eat, but purring & petting come first. She is ok with other cats and dogs if you give them plenty of time & room to adjust. She will excitedly greet you like a dog would as soon as you enter a room & will run to you no matter where you are if you make the 'Psst psst' sound at her. She is super talkative & has the cutest small, scratchy meow. It is thought that she may not get any bigger, as her growth may have been stunted from her former alley cat life, so you have a permanent kitten in Walnut. :) She loves 'making muffins' on humans & headbutting human noses. For unknown reasons, her left eye is recessed & her 3rd eyelid covers it all the time, but it causes her no pain or discomfort. If you are looking for a lap cat whose world revolves around you, this is the right kitty!

Walnut is spayed, FeLV and FIV negative, current on shots, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped and is litter box trained.
