Socks is a bright and active girl with lots of energy. She has a long fluffy tail which she holds up perkily in the air when she’s coming to say hello. She loves her pats and smooches. She’s very friendly and will come up to you purring and meowing, asking for pats and head bonks. Socks is quite a chatty girl.
She loves to be on the move so much that sometimes she won’t stay in your arms for long, preferring to be running around playing with toys or the other cats in the house. But when she’s feeling smoochy, she will cuddle in your arms while you scratch around her ears and chin. As she gets older, she will probably mellow into more of a lap cat. At the moment, when she finally stops for a snooze, she will curl beside you on the couch or bed.
She hasn’t been exposed to small children and probably would be too active for them. She was friends with her previous owner’s dog, so would probably adjust to a cat friendly dog pretty quickly again. She adjusted to the adult cats in her foster carer’s house fairly quickly and easily.
She would like the company of another cat or a person who is home a lot to play with her regularly. This kitty needs lots of stimulation through playtime, interaction with other cats or people or creative toys. She’s a fairly strong character so any other cats would need to be ok with her demanding play time. She plays a bit roughly at times, but is mostly gentle.
She would suit a family with older children who has the time to play with her and give her lots of positive attention or has an indoor cat friendly dog or another young cat who loves playing for when you are at work or out.
All Little Paws kitties come to you vet checked, desexed, vaccinated, micro chipped, wormed, flea treated and litter trained. As we are a rescue group, the adoption fee is not negotiable. Little Paws kitties are indoor or cat enclosure only and must go to homes that intend them to stay that way, for their safety and health and for the environment. It is our foster carer’s choice as to which home a kitty goes to. We match kitties to their new family; we do not necessarily “sell” to the first caller. As our foster carers are all volunteers raising kitties in their own home, we would appreciate a call if you cannot make an appointment.
