My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Primrose (about 7 years old as of April, 2023) is a female black tuxedo shorthaired cat. Primrose was born to a feral mother cat who had literally been dumping her kittens at one of our caretakers' house for years. They finally caught her but she was about to give birth, so these lucky kittens have been inside their whole lives. Although Prim was the last kitten to decide people were good despite what her wild mama told her she has made a big turn around and is now a super well adjusted and loving little girl. She follows her foster mom around like a lovesick puppy. She likes to quietly bug her people for attention, sitting and staring at them expectantly until they give in and pet her! Primrose purrs over just about anything in the comfort of her foster home and although she doesn't always love being picked up held she loves to cuddle on the couch for hours at time getting petted, getting little kisses on her little muzzle, and returning the affection by chewing on her friend's hair. She chirps with delight when she is really excited about something and loves to play. Prim has done well at adoption events with kids when she was younger but we think in her forever home she'd do better with older children. She gets along great with other cats but her favorite cat in the whole world is her sister Daisy, and after many years they don't do well separated, so we're looking for a family that could open their home to both of them. She hasn't had any dog experience and at her age may not be able to keep an open mind on them.
