Meet Milky Way!  She was a very good mama to six rambunctious kittens, and has started to relax more in the last few weeks now that her babies are more independent.  What she needs now is a quiet home where she can decompress and get comfortable.

She loves head and butt scritches but doesn't seem to know how to ask for them, likely due to her limited experience with humans as a former stray. Despite her initial hissing, she has never tried to bite or swat at us.  She is learning how to trust more and communicate with people.  Milky Way doesn't exactly seek out affection yet, but she'll allow pets if she's approached calmly.  We believe she might be okay with other cats once her babies are gone.

Her favorite part of the day is meal time—she was quite skinny (nursing mama) when we first got her but she loves her wet food!

Do you have a quiet home and a little extra patience to help bring this beautiful kitty out of her shell and give her the life she deserves?

Milky Way is from an owner surrender. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
