Hi, I'm Meli
Domestic Short Hair | Adult | Female | Medium
Do you like to have things your way? So do I!! I am not interested in kisses and cuddles, but will let you know when I’d like to be petted. I’ll also let you know when I’ve had enough. I like to be near my people all day, and will happily sleep next to you while you work or watch TV. When I’m awake, I like to play and eat, and will stare at you until you comply with my demands. I’m very scared of other cats and will growl, hiss, and try to hide from them. I love playing with my string toys, especially when they go under a piece of tissue paper. Also, sometimes my tail won’t stop moving and that annoys me, so I try to catch it. I’m full of sass, but my foster mom says that’s why she loves me so much.
Hobbies: giving disapproving glares when my food bowl is empty, playing with toys
Favorite Toy: feathers, string toys, and tissue paper
Favorite Napping Spot: next to my foster mom
HOW I CAME TO THE PGSPCA
I went into a humane trap that had been set for another cat. I was very upset in the trap, but I was also very eager to be petted. The trapper debated on releasing me, but decided I should go with her. I’m very glad she did, because I was very sick with a blood infection. I’m healthy now, and ready to live my best life with my own family.
I would like a quiet home with a family that has a lot of time to spend with me, and will adore me despite my cat-ish personality. I don’t like other animals, but I like my people and I get lonely when I’m left alone. I would like a spot next to you on your bed to sleep at night, and a soft space to nap near you during the day.
