Calliope's Info...

I am already spayed.

Calliope's Story...
Calliope is very polite: she is reluctant to jump on furniture, hasn't flipped her water dish yet, prefers her dry kibble in a bowl rather than on the floor, hasn't scratched anything so far depite not having access to a scratching post, and took to the litter box with no prompting. From her reaction to hearing water misters, I assume she's been spritzed before and didn't like it. Right now she is a lap cat, but when her need for cuddles has been satisfied, she is very happy to play. Her preferred kind of play involves an interactive human, someone who is willing to drag a string or lightly bounce a 'high bounce' rubber ball (the kind that came with jacks or could be bought in gumball machines). She will knock around cat toys to keep herself amused if she has to, but she'd really rather have another human play with her. She does not play like an outdoor cat: if there's a killer instinct in there, it will take some time and effort to bring it out. Her one oddity is that she has no interest at all in cardboard boxes. liope reacts strongly, and fearfully, to mirrors. This may be because her recent experiences with other cats have not been positive. However, given how young she is, I'd think she'd fit into a multi-cat household if the other cat was mellow and introductions were handled well. She likes vanilla yogurt and canned Friskies of any variety. She also likes nose boops, gentle belly rubs (at her discretion, of course), and petting. Hands, in her estimation, should be on her.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Calliope, a Marion Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Marion, or seeking a Calico cat from a breeder in Marion.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marion already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Marion breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marion paves the way for another one to be saved.
