Hi!! My name is Abby and I am a gray tabby. I was rescued from Jefferson County Animal Control along with my 4 kittens. The kittens have all been adopted but I am still looking for my furever home. I am probably about 2 or 3 years old and have been at the same foster home for about a year and a half.

I am a very pretty, quiet girl who minds her own business. I do occasionally play with one of the other foster kitties at my home, but mostly I just keep to myself. I am a little shy and will hide when visitors come over. Most of the time I find a perch where I can nap in peace. Usually I just watch all the activity, but occasionally I will chase the laser light. My favorite thing to do is to nap on my foster Dad’s lap. I’ll even share his lap with other kitties.

I’m not a cuddly cat, but will come to you when I want attention. I get freaked out if you try to pick me up, so you have to wait for me to come to you. I used to be very skittish but have come a long way recently. I will even let you walk up and pet me most of the time now. Just a few months ago I would have run away and hidden.

I could be happy being the only cat in the house or I would probably be okay sharing my humans with another cat if it wasn’t aggressive. Sometimes I can get a little bossy with the other females in the house. But I think I might get along okay with a male. I don’t try to push them around. In fact, I might prefer human males over human females, too

There are two dogs in my foster home and I don’t really mind them. We just leave each other alone. I have not been around children, but would not do well with them since I am so shy and afraid to be picked up. I might be happiest in a home with an older adult who would love to spoil me and give me a nice comfy lap to sleep on.

I will need a special family who is patient with me while I get used to new surroundings. I’m not too adventurous when it comes to new things. But if you give me time I just might be your new lap cat!

If you’d like to meet me please contact my foster Mom. I don’t go to adoption events because I get too scared there, so we would need to make other arrangements to get acquainted. I’ll be ready when you are!

About St. Louis Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

St. Louis Pet Rescue is a non-profit rescue group focusing on saving pets from local animal control facilities and other neglect situations.

We do not have a facility. All of the pets we rescue are in loving foster homes. Foster homes provide love, care training, and, if needed, rehabilitation to the pets. This also allows the pet to be more adjusted when they enter their forever home since they are used to a home environment (versus a kennel at the pound).
