Introducing the one -the only- HONEY!

Honey is an extroverted sweetheart. She is a young cat who loves to play, particularly with ball and feather toys. She will run up to you when you open the door, leaning against you for pets. This special girl is looking for an equally special home. Honey experiences petting-induced-aggression that she developed from inappropriate rough housing during her time as a kitten. She's now looking for a cat savy, cat-experienced home who are looking for a one of a kind companion.

Honey will need a home with safe outdoor access where she can let her natural instincts roam free! This girl is an excellent hunter, and enjoys chasing ankles and legs - and will need a better outlet for this type of behaviour. An outdoor space with some tall grass to chase bugs through, trees to climb, and even hay bales to dive into - this girl would excel on a property looking for an indoor/outdoor cat.

Honey prefers to approach you to be petted and will rub her head on you and ask for pets. She will jump onto your lap for attention, but snuggles come on her terms only. Her human should be familiar with cat body language and should be able to tell when Honey does not want to be touched. Honey will do well in a home environment that respects her boundaries when it comes to petting, snuggling, and being carried. This girl is looking for a adult only home, as her previous aggression has shown she would not do well with kids.

Honey dislikes other cats, and becomes over stimulated when they are around. A home without other animals where she can reign as queen would be best for this special girl. If you are interested in adopting, please tell us a bit about your home and what attracts you to a special cat like Honey!
