The Ultimate Couch Potato
1 years old, spayed female
Daydreaming and spying on the neighbours are on the top of the daily task for Rita, she LOVES looking out the window. A comfy seat at the window would be a must in her furever home. Ideally a home which is south-facing as she’s a the ultimate sun seeker, finding sun spots to catch a nap.
Rita is good with people, whilst being initially curious when meeting new people, she quickly warms up becoming very social. Rita is an affectionate and independent kitty, making her a low maintenance and depending on her environment she can be very playful, often happy to entertain herself. She can be something of a couch potato and enjoys sitting in the lap of her favourite people or next to them for movie nights! However, she isn’t keen on being picked up or carried around but will tolerate it if you are her favourite person.
Rita is a little princess and if you become her favorite peeps, she will follow you every where and shower you with unconditional love. She isn’t overly talkative but will engage in polite conversation and meow in response to questions. She is fearful of loud noises so would probably be best suited to a quiet house.
Suitable for a calm household, older children 12+, a single person, or a quiet couple.

Health: Recently she has experienced some acid reflux issues but it might be attributable to the stress of moving to a new foster home and seems to have been sorted with a change in diet and some antacid meds, otherwise there are no known health.

her kittens. Unfortunately, the kittens had parvo and died despite
