If you have ever longed for a sweet, loving, adoring and very affectionate cat, Miss Tortie is your girl! While she may be shy when you first meet her, and will be happiest in a home without children or other pets, once she feels safe in a day or two, she will show you how much she loves you every day. She loves to carry on a conversation with you, and is such wonderful company. She is a mellow, nearly 11 year-old girl, with beautiful green eyes that will look at you adoringly and intently, as if she can see right into your soul. Tortie has such a sweet and gentle temperament that she will let you brush her, trim her nails and even clean her bottom when need be. Tortie's favorite things are mealtimes, naps and scratching on her scratch pad and post, but mainly she loves to always be near you, preferably snuggling together on the couch. And if you forget to pay attention to her for a while, she may give you an oh-so-gentle tap of her paw in the hopes that you might give her some head scratches. Tortie will often reach out and put her paw on your leg as she lays near you, or even sleep with her head resting on you, just to stay connected. She will ask for your permission to climb onto your lap or your chest, where she will happily remain for a while, purring and giving you kisses while you hold her and pet her soft fur, reassuring her that she is loved and wanted after having had too many changes in her life and too many days in the shelter, longing for a forever home. Please, please call to adopt sweet Tortie, and be the one to give her the reassurance of a loving, forever home. In return, she will be your adoring companion for many years to come!
