Cat of the Week: Loretta

Julia D Cat of the Week

Loretta came to us with a litter of kittens. Once separated from her kittens after they were weaned, she started eating a lot – almost like she was afraid she wouldn’t know when her next meal would be. She did put on quite a bit of weight and as of April 2024, she is a good-sized girl at about 13 pounds. Thankfully she has come to realize food will always be given to her, so she isn’t behaving like she’s starving! Her fur coat is absolutely beautiful with darker tabby markings and tortoiseshell orange/tan coloring filtered throughout… which is affectionately called a ‘Torbie’ fur coat. She is estimated to be about two years old.

She is very playful once she gets comfortable with you and she purrs easily. She will do better in a home with no kittens but she has gotten along with adult cats in her foster home. She likes to run through a cat tunnel and chase balls and toy mice, chase after the ‘little red dot,’ and lay in a tall cat tree in front of a big window – way up at the very top – so she can see the outside world. Loretta also loves to bat the balls in a little 3-level round-about tower toy! Since the weather has gotten warmer, we have taken her outside on a harness and leash and she LOVES sitting on her foster mom’s deck to soak up the sunshine. She loves affection and enjoys laying in her foster’s arms and cuddling like a baby, and will love to sit on your lap. She absolutely LOVES to be brushed. Older kids would probably be best for her, and when she was out in the Petsmart Adoption Center, she absolutely hated dogs when they approached her window – so a home without a dog would be best for her.

Loretta’s adoption fee is $85 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.
