Domestic Short Hair


3 Years

Beautiful Babette was brought to the shelter by her owner due to allergies. Now that she's gotten over her "new to the shelter scene" jitters, she's starting to blossom! She's a curious girl with a love of lap time and, why, yes, you can keep the petting coming, thank you very much! With other cats she is shyer and tends to take more of the observer position when she has a chance to be out with other cats in the room so she might be bullied in a home with a more dominant cat. She'd do best in a mellower home (older kids rather than young busy kiddos running all over). She has not been dog tested but might be fine with an older, calm dog. Really, her photo says it all. She's an elegant, refined creature who would thrive with a gentle human. If you are looking for a creature to enjoy quite evenings with you, just add some classical music and a good book she is your lady! We estimate her to be 3 years old. Come on in and meet her for yourself. She's sure to charm you!
