Bonded with Sundae

Hello, meet Nyla! This beautiful girl came from a loving family who came upon hard times and had to give up this fur baby and her sister (Sundae, bonded and up for adoption as well).

I have been fostering Nyla and her sister for about a month.  She can be a little skittish at first but absolutely loves pets and face rubs! She may not sit on your lap but seems to enjoy lying right next to her people. Nyla has lots of energy and loves to play.  Her other past times include watching YouTube videos of mice and birds!  I will often find her laying on the cat tree gazing at all the happenings just outside the window. 

In her first family Nyla lived with her sister and 2 step sisters as well as a dog and kids.  I was told she does not care for dogs or new cats but was tolerant of her step sisters.  I have since seen that Nyla and her sister (Sundae) would do best with a home that has no other cats or dogs.  I have notices that she is a bit jumpy and does not like to be held so I would be cautious with a family that has young children unless they knew how to properly be around cats safely.

Nyla is litter box trained and uses the cat tree to stretch and scratch.  I have seen her scratch at some furniture but with some redirection and access to proper scratching options , as well as keeping her claws trimmed, I feel she would  do just fine. 

Nyla is spayed, microchipped, and will be up to date on all vaccines prior to adoption.  I hope to find her and her sister a loving family that will love them as much as I have.
