Facts about Amy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 218651
  • Hair: Short
Amy is social, confident, curious and playful -- a great fit for almost any household. At only 2-1/2 years of age, Amy has learned the basics of cathood but is young enough to have some remnants of kittenhood left in her. Amy and her sibling Tina lost their previous home when their owner had to move. Now this very affectionate girl is waiting for her new home. Amy is a big purr-baby and loves to give head bumps while busily inspecting and claiming her new surroundings. With her gentle yet confident demeanor Amy would fit into almost any family with children young or older. Amy was quick when a door opened and may try to escape if not watched carefully. To make her indoor life interesting enough, give Amy a scratching post and some batting or dangling toys, and provide a window perch or spot from where she can watch what's happening outside and to keep her mind busy. Amy did not strike us as a lap cat, but in the evening hours when tired and ready to slow down she may very much like to cuddle and fall asleep in your lap, happy to be home again.
