She's smart. She's sassy. She's a survivor.
Professor is a high-energy party girl looking for a cat-centric, experienced forever home that will put her needs first. She's an expert-level litterbox user and wand-toy enthusiast.
This tuxedo lady loves luxury (heck, she wears formal-wear to dinner every night!), but she also has a strong spicy side. Born on the streets of Toronto in late fall 2019, her mother and littermate were taken into foster care about a month before rescuers could find her. Unfortunately, that meant she spent weeks alone outside without her family. As a kitten she had to fend for herself and even survive a snowstorm alone.
This early-life experience gave her a spicy edge, and extremely high anxiety - she's fiercely independent and may never be a lap cat, but her foster family has seen her bloom over the course of a year. When she arrived at their home, she couldn't even be touched. But slowly, with plenty of patience and hard work, she started to come out of her shell. Now she enjoys skritches, will sit near you on the couch, and can even briefly be picked up (all on her own terms, of course).
Also, this girl is also OBSESSED with a certain fish-shaped wand toy. Her foster family has tried to find others, but nope, this is the one. Playing with her every night is non-negotiable - she will drag her toy into the living room and meow to demand your attention. But I mean, who could ever say no to that face?!
Areas of improvement that she's looking to explore with her new family: learning to control her tendency to scratch (both people and furniture), feeling more comfortable eating out in the open, and gentle brushing / teeth and nail care. That's why she needs a child-free home with an experienced cat guardian.

Note: Although she currently lives with our 7-year-old resident cat, Professor displays hunting tendencies and may benefit from a pet-free home.
