Greetings MEOW --
I met Latte on my first volunteer shift at the shelter: she was in a cubby in the front free-roaming room and had just woken up but couldn't open one eye, so I had this shy coffee-coloured cat winking a blue-grey eye at me all morning! It was a memorable first-impression.
I have a soft spot for all the senior cats in MEOW's front free-roaming room but we kept a tab on Latte in particular, and she joined our little family a couple of months ago. She's not so shy any more but still very polite -- she's a bit of a chatterbox and meows back when she's called, she doesn't jump up onto furniture or people unless invited, she has excellent scratching and litter box manners, and she loves being brushed. Latte is a champion snuggler and she'd rather be on someone's lap or nestled tightly next to someone than playing with toys. Needless to say, we're smitten with Latte.... look at that little face! Can you tell she's 9 years young? We love Latte's senior cat friends at MEOW and keep our fingers crossed that people will come in, fall in love with them and take them home!
Thanks MEOW for matching us up with the sweetest cat! We wake up earlier these days so that we can enjoy a little Latte with our morning coffee. :)
