Adopt a Domestic Long Hair (long coat)

Domestic Long Hair (long coat) Cat

Amber the Cat needs a home

She is adorable

Name:           Amber

Gender:         Female
DOB:             June 2017
Description:    Black Long Haired

AMBER is a sweet-natured kitty with beautiful long black fur and stunning orange/copper eyes. She is very attached to her foster home who has taught her how to trust people. She will be a little shy with new people and will need a little time to adapt to a new home. Once she settles in, Amber loves to be held and petted as she gazes at you with her big orange/copper eyes! 

Amber loves to play! She is especially fond of 'flying' toys and goes crazy over catnip - rolling in it ecstatically. She also loves chasing and wresting with her foster brother, Stardust (posted separately). Amber is fascinated with the electric pet water fountain, staring at it for long periods of time before drinking it. She also just started tunneling under the covers on the bed for her midday nap.

Amber needs a feline buddy in her forever home. Interestingly, she plays pretty well with Stardust, although he is sometimes a bit rough with her. They could be fostered together in a new foster home, but don't make the best long-term companions. Amber would do best with another like-minded female kitty.

Amber's early life was sadly not very nurturing. She was given to a someone as a kitten who soon moved away to college. Amber was left behind with this person's mother who didn't want her. Amber was seen out on this person's balcony in cold weather and out and about the condo complex where she was living. As fate would have it, Amber bolted into a neighbor's home (who is allergic to cats); so she contacted another neighbor who she knew was a cat lover and that person happened to be a long-time SPCA volunteer. Long story - we offered to take Amber into our care to find her a home with someone who would cherish this sweet girl!

Amber is a truly amazing little kitty. With a little time and patience, she will make a wonderful life-long companion for a lucky person or persons.
