Meeka is a beautiful calico-and-white young female cat (spayed, neg/neg, vaxed) who came in from an alley across Washington Park.
Fosterdad Ryan writes about Meeka: "Meeka is perhaps the sweetest cat I have ever met. Just newly off the streets into a home, she is still a bit jumpy when it comes to indoor life. But once you spend a little time earning her trust, she wants nothing other than to be where you are. And preferably - sitting next to you, purring like a motor, and getting pet. She'll even wrap her paws around your hand to bring it closer to her. And once she feels safe and thinks you're not peeking, she gets playful, loving to chase little things, like a twisty ties, balls, or yarn. She is a total sweetheart, perfect for a home (possibly without other animals) with someone who has a whole lot of love to give."
Fostermom Sonja writes: "Meeka continues to be incredibly lovey. We have another cat so the comparisons are natural. Where Fox attacks us daily, Meeka seems to be unaware that she is even able to inflict pain if she wanted to. Where Fox gets a little tired of the petting and lets us know with a bite, Meeka never seems to want it to end (though of course she understands it must). Her meow is less of a meow and more of a "squeak" (we have come to call her Squeaka at times). And her face imparts so much personality, she looks so intense. As for play, again, we compare her to our resident cat, who requires a bit of direction from us to play, where Meeka is content to bat around some yarn independently.
Her food habits are such that we can leave her bag of food lying around and she shows no interest in it, but she happily eats what we put in her bowl (again, in comparison to our Fox, who will eat anything and everything in sight, even kale).
Whoever gets her will be a very lucky cat owner."
Meeka is a young adult female, spayed, vaccinated, FIV and FeLV negative, and ready for her furrrerver home.
