Cardigan is what we refer to as independent. She is calm, quiet, docile, litter box trained, but not overly affectionate or friendly. I can pet her and brush her and she is often very happy with that and even purrs. Other cats are just fine but to my knowledge she has had no exposure to dogs, and I doubt kids would have the patience with her aloof nature. She is a beautiful and young polydactyl that had five babies at an elementary school in O’Fallon and was turned over to Heartland by a few of the teachers there. The last of the babies has been adopted and this girl needs proper placement herself. Not exactly a good pet, but certainly a calm companion that is very likely one heck of a mouser. Surviving on your own is hard work and she did it while raising tiny five babies. They were about one month old when they were turned over to us and it only took one day to box train Cardigan, the babies caught on right away. Cardigan is spayed, up to date on all shots, micro chipped, negative for FIV and FeLV, treated for parasites and hoping for a safe and forever home. Cardigan is Heartland #10426.
