Other Pets at Shelter...
Alexis is an All-Star. She survived on sheer Tortoiseshell attitude and will. With her gorgeous black, gold, and cream markings, she is a “Covergirl” cat with looks to go with her darling personality. She’s a little shy at first and takes some time to settle in but once she is comfortable her true personality really shines. She will jump right into your heart. Alexis loves to play with string and dangley toys and will carry those around the house. She goes crazy chasing tin foil balls and the little rattlely mice, throwing them herself when you tire. Alexis would love to have a lap that she could call her very own. Alexis will sit for hours in your lap for petting if you’ll let her. Alexis is now living at the shelter, so come meet this gorgeous girl and make her a part of your family!
A NOTE FROM HER FORMER FOSTER DAD:
Initially, I was told that she isn’t good with other cats and I don’t know if I would ever call her a cat lover but she is currently coexisting with 5 other cats in the house just fine and is even trying to play with my “cat of peace” but isn’t really sure how to. She was playing with my cat of peace last night (boy cat, not an alpha)... really playing. She isn't sure how to but they were chasing each other and playing stalk, brought a tear to my eye. Lexi has great litter box manners and she loves the scratching posts (she is the only cat I have met that likes the sisal-string posts). This girl is very gentle with her nails and teeth when she wrestles with my hand or goes after the under the blanket monster. Lexi loves people and really needs someone to bond with. She always seems to be in the same room as me, no matter what I am doing or how fast I am changing rooms. She is a talker and loves curling up on the bed next to me at night too (along with the others). She did really well with 2 big, high energy dogs when I was dog-sitting and reports from a friend that uses the pool during the day is that she is amazing with kids. She isn't thrilled with being brushed or having her nails clipped, but just gets vocal, no attacking when I do either. This girlie loves her Nutro Max dry food and isn’t a fan of any of the other foods she has encountered, including wet food. The only treat I have found that she likes is Boar’s Head yellow American cheese and catnip, Lexi LOVES her catnip!!! It will take her time to acclimate to a new environment and she is definitely more alpha than not, but I have 2 other alpha females and they all coexist peacefully 99% of the time.
ALL CATS FELV/FIV TESTED NEGATIVE, ALTERED, MICRO-CHIPPED, UP TO DATE ON VACCINES AND HOUSE TRAINED.
