Cagney is a Sun-Cat - which means she is a great companion cat with other cats. She is a gray female barely out of her kitten stage with incredibly big, beautiful, eyes and the most adorable pink little ears. She reminds her foster mom of the plush, soft, toy store kitten you remember cuddling with when you were a child. She also has an unusually thick, beautiful, raccoon-like tail that she is rightfully proud of and spends an inordinate amount of time grooming.
Cagney was found in Mill Basin, Brooklyn as a kitten, trapped with her sister Lacey. After a visit to the vet she was given all her vaccinations along with a clean bill of health before being delivered to a shelter with her sister. Lacey was quickly adopted but Cagney was left alone to fend for herself amongst the other homeless felines. Because Cagney was so submissive and sweet, she was singled out, picked on and bullied by the other cats and became terrified and terribly withdrawn.
Thankfully, a foster took her in, and after a couple of weeks of incessant hiding, she blossomed into a sweet, playful and engaged cat who has managed to recover that spirit in spite of what she's already endured during her short life. Although she has made magnificent and rapid strides in her socialization, during play time and petting she can get overly excited and as a result her love bites can be a little bit more passionate than desirable, though this behavior is rapidly becoming a thing of the pass.
Cagney is a little over a-year-old. She has been spayed, vaccinated and tested negative for FIV / FeLV.
