I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Meet Priscilla, the “It Girl”, with personality plus. Charm, looks, confidence and smarts: Priscilla has just about everything she needs to succeed in life, except the perfect, forever home.
Priscilla has plenty of that “tortitude” that we know and love in tortoiseshell cats. The genes that create the beautiful color combinations also seem to give the tortie girls strong personalities. This particular tortie is very athletic and does spectacular leaps when chasing Da Bird and other fly-through-the-air toys. She’s also a talented and determined hunter of little gray mice, and entertains herself for many hours practicing her skills, especially in the bathroom where the mouse can easily bounce off all the walls.
Although she’s not fond of being picked up and held, and can’t be considered a lap cat, she’s very social and wants to be near her people and involved in what they are doing. She can be quite chatty, and enjoys meeting new people, especially if they’ll pick up the laser light and play with her for awhile.
Priscilla especially loves sitting on the edge of tub while someone bathes. She is content to purr and snooze there as long as someone is willing to soak and keep her company. If you prefer a shower, she’ll sit nearby and share that, too. Maybe she just likes the steam treatment, but it certainly does make her very relaxed.
The ideal home for Priscilla would include another playful cat who won’t be intimidated by her take-charge attitude. She hasn’t been tested with dogs, but we suspect she could hold her own with a cat-friendly canine. She would also be content as the only pet, as long as she gets some one-on-one play time every day with her people, and has a place to sit and look out the window when she’s home alone.
Because she is active and athletic, she wouldn’t be a good fit in a house full of delicate objects or fragile people. She is most active late at night, so those who go to bed very early and need a perfectly quiet house probably shouldn’t apply. And of course there must be someone in the family who enjoys taking baths with a cat for company.
Priscilla is between one and two years old, has been spayed, tested negative for FIV and FeLV and is up to date on her vaccines.
