Description

Meet Addie.... Short for Adeline. A sweet little burst of color and fluff. Being a classic calico, she's red, black and white, and carries it off beautifully. She gets a lot of credit surviving homeless on the streets while being a mom. She was found as a stray after recently having kittens. Unfortunately her kittens were never located, but Addie graciously cared for 6 orphan kittens that came in to the pound.

Her life wasn't easy and left her with trust issues. At first, she is very shy and it takes her a while to come out of her shell and feel comfortable with new people and new situations, But, with time and calm reassurance she settles in and reveals her true personality. She's a sweet, gentle girl who is learning to socialize, cuddle and play, conveying her contentment with her subtle purr. She enjoys the company of another gentle, non-aggressive cat. However, she can get overwhelmed by real frisky kitties who play rough. When the foster's cat shows her affection by grooming her, she leans in to him so he can get just the right spot, and she seems to LOVE the pampering and affirmation (maybe something she is getting for the first time in her life).

She has a hearty appetite and enjoys nibbling on dry cat food during the day and really looks forward to her evening meal of canned food. She will share a 3 oz. can, eating over half herself. Salmon is a favorite. She's put on a little weight and carries it well. She looks healthy and happy. She has perfect litter box habits and is always neat and tidy. She is patient and cooperative about being groomed and getting her claws trimmed, but she doesn't like being chased and caught for things. She does best when it is her idea and SHE comes to YOU. She will show her gratitude for a good home by giving a lifetime of love.

Addie is currently in a foster home. If you are interested in Addie, please email MHS at info@mnhumane.org.
