Story
This is KitKat. She was found outside around October 2023. She came right up to my daughter and wanted attention. We started feeding her and coming out every day to give her attention. In December during the first cold period, we found her sitting on our door mat waiting on us. We brought her in and moved her into our basement. She uses the cat box with no problem, loves wet, food, and dry food and freshwater. I go downstairs multiple times a day to give her attention, and she comes right up to me, sits in my lap and loves to be petted. If I have other things to do down there, she’ll follow me around and talk to me. I have five other cats, but no matter how many times I bring one or two downstairs to see her. She does not care for them. She hisses and keeps moving away from them. I’m looking for a home for her that has adults only is looking for a lap cat. She needs a home that will give her all the attention she wants and spoil her. She does like catnip, treats, and toys.

Vocal about food; meals need to be carefully measured, or she will over eat. She will inhabit furniture and surfaces; boundaries are not important to her.
