Once a spicy feral kitten, Furgie has significantly turned down the “heat” while in foster care. She has been working hard on her manners and people skills, and is showing tremendous social progress! Once she is comfortable with you, she will purr and rub on your legs as soon as you enter the room. She loves to give head butts - a sign of love - and little love nibbles. In her foster home, she has gone from hisses-to-kisses, and hopes that her forever family will show her the same patience and affection, so that they can see her loving side that her foster adores! While she hasn’t become 100% comfortable with being held and handled just yet, her foster knows she can get there soon. She can still be a little nervous around loud noises and new experiences as well, so we recommend Furgie bonding with her adopter in a smaller space first before letting her free roam their entire home. She likes playing with toys that she can swat around (mice, crinkle balls, springs) and is learning to play with wand toys. She loves back pets and head scratches, and hanging out with her kitty friends. We feel Furgie would do best having another kitty to play with in her new home, especially a confident kitty, who can help her come out of her shell even more. She lives comfortably with calm, friendly dogs as well! We feel that she would do okay in a home with respectful cat-savvy children over 10. Furgie needs an adopter who can work with her on continuing her socialization skills, so she can become the lap cat we know she can be!
