She’s been kept since she was first born but could not be kept due to her previous owner moving out of state. Socialization. Around strangers and children they are described as shy for a few minutes but when comfortable she becomes extremely friendly. She has been around children ages 7, 9 and 11 and around them she is very respectful, relaxed and usually very tolerant. She plays very gentle whether it’s with adults, children or cats, loves being around other cats and will also be very relaxed and respectful with them too. However; when she sees any type of dog through her window or near her, she will often growl and stare until the dog is gone. Behavior. This cat is a cat who will meow and cry to let you know that she is hungry and ready to eat and will pee on the side of her litter box to let you know that it is dirty and needs to be cleaned. She enjoys car rides and will either sleep through the whole ride or will be starring outside the window and enjoy the view. She is not a fan of bath time or having her nails trimmed and will hiss, swat and attempt to bite you just to avoid either one. However; she will enjoy you wiping her down with some cleaning wipes, brushing her fur and being picked up and cuddled. For a New Family to Know. This cat is described as a friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, independent, somewhat shy and fearful and lovable cat.
