Spunky may be the perfect work to describe Maybelline. Or maybe stubborn. When Maybelline first came into the shelter, she wanted nothing to do with the volunteers. She missed her foster family and was convinced we were trying to kill her. She raced away from our petting hands, and peered up suspiciously at the toys we tried to entice her with. But our volunteers are stubborn too and we could see that Maybelline wanted to trust us. Fast forward a few weeks and Maybelline has remembered that she loves petting and playing. Now if you are playing with another cat she reaches a paw out to tap you-- "Remember me?" she seems to be saying, "I am the MOST fun to play with. Play with meeeeeeee!". Maybelline IS the most fun to play with and would do well with another cat playmate. She also enjoys petting when she is tuckered out. Maybelline does still get nervous in new situations and has to be reminded that fingers are not toys and do not belong in kitten mouths, so she would do well with experienced cat adopters. But Maybelline is a bouncy, zippy, ball of fun. Spunky. Yep, that is our Maybelline.
