I was found in a shed with my kittens. I got to enjoy the good life in one of Save-a-Pet’s foster homes while I was taking care of my babies. My foster family said I enjoy eating and I am definitely not a picky eater.

Since coming back to Save-A-Pet, I am always first in line for the breakfast canned food in the morning ­— definitely not a shy girl. After feeding time is over, I can often be found relaxing or napping on the front porch, sometimes even on my back.

I can be quite talkative and enjoy petting, too. While in foster, I nipped a little bit if I was getting overstimulated, but since coming here, I have been much better. After all, now that I am spayed and no longer have to worry about my babies, I have been able to calm down and relax.

I don’t really mind the other cats either. I can sleep soundly, eat well, and enjoy the good life ... but there is a better life out there for me, and that’s one in a home with my own last name.
