If you’re looking for a lap cat, then Petunia is your girl! Petunia (aka “Toonsie”) first came to PAWS nearly a year ago after someone found her in a carrier by a dumpster. Why anyone would abandon this sweet and beautiful (just look at those bright green eyes and that cute pink nose!) cat is way is beyond us. But we’re glad she ended up at PAWS, where she will be loved until she finds her forever home.
As we mentioned, Toonsie is a big-time lap cat. She visibly perks up whenever any of her favorite volunteers go anywhere near the chair in Cat Room 2. And as soon as a lap becomes available, our buddy is quick to jump right up and settle in. She also really enjoys being pet and brushed.
Petunia isn’t very fond of being picked up. Nor does she like other cats. But we know that she would absolutely blossom in a quieter home without other pets or young children, and that she would make the purrfect best friend for a quiet couple (or single!), some empty nesters, or a retiree.
Petunia is about 5 years old, and is spayed and current on all of her vaccinations. She has also tested negative for FIV and FeLV.
If you or anyone you know would be interested in adopting Petunia, and live within a reasonable driving distance of Norwalk, CT (we want to be able to provide training support and follow-up visits if necessary), click here. For PAWS shelter hours, directions and contact information, click here.
Thanks to our friends at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life for telling us about one of their favorite cats currently living at PAWS.
