found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.
WEIGHT: A whopping 7 lbs. full grown!
BREED/COLOR: Tiny Spayed Bombay Mix/Super sleek, jet black, no white markings, low shed(or at least the hair is not noticeable due to dark color?).
HISTORY: Astrid came to Last Hope back last November as a kitten with 5 of her siblings. They were originally found up in the rafters of a warehouse where their mother had hidden them. Sadly, due to her black color she has been overlooked by adopters and has become a long time shelter resident having to grow up in a foster home instead of a forever adoptive home. She is now in her second foster home as we were hoping that a change of scenery would assist her in finding her permanent forever home. Her siblings were all adopted last fall but Astrid has fell through the cracks and she is VERY sad about that :-( We're hoping there is someone willing to help her find her much deserved forever home and perfect humans to love!
PERSONALITY: Astrid is all cuteness, sweetness, inquisitive, happy, playful, personable, energetic, quirky, super social, and super intelligent. Astrid reminds us of a German Shepard dog with her little face that screams intelligence and deep thoughts. Astrid is a social little girl who likes to follow her favorite person around checking out what they are doing with her cute intense inquisitive curiosity. She also borders on guard dog as she misses NOTHING! She is well aware of every coming and going from the home. Her favorites are being petted, especially chest and neck rubs which she turns belly up to give you the hint. She loves rolling around on the floor asking for her chest rubs and neck/chin rubs. She follows you EVERYWHERE! She goes bonkers over the laser light and the feather fishing pole toy. She will play with them non-stop until you wear out. She is very, very tiny and has been dubbed a "pocket pet" here in her foster home :-) She looks and acts like a kitten who quite possibly has found the eternal fountain of youth? Astrid would do fine as an only pet but is also incredible with other cats. While she does fabulous with other cats, she would be fabulous as an only pet hanging out with just the humans. Astrid is a great conversationalist with people. She is talkative. She truly thinks you can understand what she is telling you :-) Astrid loves cuddling with you and is a lap cat extraordinaire! She knows how to lean up against you just right like a dog would. She has the very cute habit of lounging around with her tongue sticking out. It's so cute!!!!
PERFECT FAMILY: An owner who would like a tiny kitty with tons of cuteness, playfulness, personality, and character. Someone looking for an ideal partner and companion to hang out with and do life with :-) Someone wanting a companion who is always happy and in a good mood. Someone who likes a highly social and interactive cat who will cuddle and lap sit with them. Someone who is OK with a kitty who is very active when she isn't cuddled in their lap, afterwards they can enjoy a good kitty romp together! A home with another cat that would enjoy a fun playmate and companion or a fun playmate and companion just for the humans. Astrid is sure to bring joy and happiness into her new home whomever is there!
She self regulates food so can have a bowl of dry food left out. Uses the litter box perfectly and the scratching post perfectly here in her foster home. An owner who appreciates the amazing and awesome qualities of black cats!!! Astrid is an AWESOME, AWESOME cat and deserves the best home in the world and should not being ignored by potential adopters just because she is all black!
Astrid's one and ONLY negative in the world is that she is skeptical of strangers who come to look at her, so an adopter who is cat savvy and knows that just because the cat in question does not kiss up to them immediately does not mean that they will not be the most amazing cat in the world who will quickly turn into their closest buddy and companion within a couple days of bringing them home! It is NOT Astrid's cup of tea to be someone's teddy bear that they can forcibly carry around, therefore small children may not be the best fit for Astrid. She is EXTRODINAIRILY cuddly with you IF you are respectful of her. If you are then she will be your ever CONSTANT companion.

Adoption Fee $180. Astrid can be seen anytime in her Eagan foster home by contacting her foster Mom, Kim, at 651-452-7564(no texts) or email@example.com . Astrid is currently in a foster home with no pets of their own so she is spoiled rotten, gets loads of TLC, so we know her personality inside and out. We can guarantee that you are bringing home a very healthy pet!
