Story
Momma Tortie is actually a grandmother at the young ago of 3. There was a family of cats that were living outside and we took them all so we had a whole family tree :) She is fixed, vaccinated and microchipped. She has a previous eye injury that our vet said is permanent and doesn’t affect her so there is no need to remove. It just makes her special. Momma is a good kitty, she gets along with dogs and other cats, she’s kind of timid, she avoids drama, lol she’ll run away and sit and watch the cats or dogs when they act up-fight, she likes to sleep with blankets on my kitchen chairs, or on my bed. I hv to feed the cats up higher b/c of my dogs, so she might be jumping on kitchen table thinking she’s gonna eat, but she learns easy so she can be redirected She’s probably my easiest, well behaved cat. She likes to climb high, I have space between my kitchen cabinets and ceilings, she likes to get up there and hang out, I tried keeping her down but she likes climbing so I leave her alone.

Story
Hello! I am looking to rehome my almost 2 year old female cat, Wink. I adopted her from Animal Care and Control a little over a year ago, and in all honesty I can no longer keep her because I just am unable to be home enough to provide the attention/ care she deserves. She is very sweet and loves to snuggle, but she can also be very playful as well. She loves to play fetch with one specific ball (to which would come along with her), she loves to play with anything you put in front of her. She does have a sight issue, but I was told when adopting that she needs no special care for her eyes and besides this “flaw”, she is a normal and healthy feline. I would love for her to go somewhere with a dog as she loves to play with my mom’s dog, or just with someone who loves a good snuggler and a fun feline that bursts with personality. She deserves the best home possible, and somewhere with good wet food:)
