Hi. My name is Moxy. I'm probably part Maine Coon but it's hard to tell. Being from a feral/wild cat colony with so many cats around, it's hard to tell who my kin are! But I sure look like a Maine Coon and I have a sweet personality.
I'm still a little shy but that's because I never had a human of my own when I was little. But my foster mom is giving me lots of love. (Moxy's beautiful fur was full of knots and she was tick infested when we found her. She sure deserves so much better.)
I've come a long way since I was first rescued. I'm still very shy but I love to be around people--but I don't quite know how to approach them. But I follow them everywhere.
My foster mom refers to me as the 'kitten whisperer'. Every foster cat that comes into my house instantly forms a bond with me; we love to snuggle together. In fact, I love every cat I meet and they love me--mom has never seen me hiss at another kitty. Everyone loves me.
I need some time and a special patient person to bring me out of my shell. I can't wait to snuggle with my new friend!
