Star is shy and nervous with changes, but with some patience, she warms up into a sweet companion. She occasionally enjoys pets and being baby talked to, but hasn't found her level of confidence yet where she fully accepts them at all times, unless you have a Churu tube in your hand - then she's jumping on you and following you around for a tasty snack! While she is not [yet] a lap cat, Star does enjoy human company and attention on her terms, and will give you loud purrs to show her appreciation. She can be vocal at times and will let you know if she is not getting the attention she wants (or when you're late for feeding time)! Star is an independent girl, and enjoys curling up in her many cat beds for a catnap, hanging out on her cat tree, and watching out windows. She can be playful and sometimes gets the zoomies like a typical active kitty, but she isn't overly energetic. It takes Star some time to build her confidence, but in a much quieter home, we have no doubt she will blossom! She could be a perfect fit for someone looking for a gentle, playful, loving kitten, without the energy level of a typical kitten. With proper and slow introductions, Star warms up nicely to other friendly and calm cats. Because she prefers affection on her own terms, we don't recommend a home with young children. She coexists with calm dogs, but they're not her favorite thing in the world.
Star, her brother, and 3 of her kitty friends were surrendered to us from their original owner in Washington, PA.
