For those that may not know, mom volunteers at a local animal shelter (Wayside Waifs) about once a week. To help kitties get adopted mom wants to blog about a special kitty each week. This weeks Waif is Patches.
Patches is a strikingly beautiful medium-hair calico kitty. She arrived at Wayside Waifs on 8/2/13 as a transfer from another shelter. Patches is approximately 1 year and 4 months old. Like all kitties at Wayside she has been spayed and she is litter box trained.
Like most calicos, Patches likes to talk, and happens to have one of the cutest meows ever. She's a friendly, loving, affectionate cat who loves attention and petting, especially on the back of her neck. She can get overstimulated easily so go slow with her. She does give signals when she's had enough petting, however, young children aren't always able to read those signs so Patches might be best to go to an adults-only home (or perhaps one with older children). Patches Felineality is Executive. That means Patches is medium brave in new situations and has an independent streak. As much as Patches loves attention, she is also quite capable of entertaining herself. If you're looking for a beautiful, sweet friend, come meet Patches!
