Marge is a good- sized, middle- aged, tiger who does not suffer fools (or other cats) gladly. In a world where most adopters are seeking teeny-tiny, fuzzy kittens, Marge does not get a lot of attention. And that is too bad because like a lot of.. ahem... more mature females, Marge has a lot to offer. Marge is super smart and independent. You do not need to worry about leaving her alone for a few hours. Marge will amuse herself without knocking over that pricey bottle of wine or wrecking your house. She will be happy to guard your place against possible squirrel intruders, and take a catnap in the sunlight. Marge may have put on a few pounds in recent years (and really who hasn't?), but her fur is velvety soft and she has the most gorgeous eyes. Marge's eyes really are the windows to her soul. When she stares up at you, you can see when she feels scared and overwhelmed, and when she is beginning to feel safe and loved. Those eyes let you know that Marge does not give her heart away easily. She has been abandoned before and is affectionate with new people on her terms.
In terms of demeanor – you can consider her a “teenager”. Like any teenager, she will push boundaries but she also has a healthy respect for authority. She knows when she is being a punk and you can call her on it. She responds to confidence and appreciates patience and understanding. A lot of her attitude is because she is insecure. She hasbeen abandoned before and passed from home to home. So, she hareally invested. I’m still a bit guarded.Once Marge trusts you, though, she is all in; a loyal companion who would be happy to nap next to you, listen while you talk about your day, or just hang out next to you on the couch. She is smart, curious and loves to play. She likes an open window with fresh air to sniff. Her foster mom Nancy taught her “Let’s Go!” means time to get into her carrier. Oh – and do you do yoga? Marlove yoga. Watching you bend into funny shapes amuses me. Oh, and cleaning! She likes to watch you clean.
No, Marge is not a teeny tiny kitten. She thinks kittens are overrated.
Please email or call to visit Marge as she is in a foster home currently.
