Misty can be timid with people but has made a lot of progress this year. She's gone from hiding under the bed all the time to hanging out on the window sill looking outside or sitting in a chair watching her fosterer over the edge of the table like a little cat dinner guest.
She's letting people get closer and closer and is learning to accept and even sometimes seems to enjoy being petted. She also loves following her foster dad around while he does chores, chatting away with meows!
She's really cute, her fur is super dense and soft, and if you can be patient with her maybe you can draw her out more! In fact, Misty will now eat her dinner out of anyone's hand when it's dinnertime, even a stranger! In fact, while she's not about to get in a stranger's lap, she'll perch on a chair or wander the apartment while guests are over, and quiet, patient guests have a pretty good shot at petting her :)
Last winter she was diagnosed with feline leukemia and heart disease and got all her teeth removed. She doesn't currently need any day to day health care though, the heart disease hasn't progressed, and she eats both wet and dry food happily (though a bit messily :)).
Mostly her toothlessness just makes her extra cute because her tongue sticks out sometimes. Her litter box manners are perfect and she doesn't scratch much besides her scratching post and pad.
Misty would prefer to be the only cat in the home and has not been tested with dogs.
