Hi, I’m Josephine! I spent the first several months of my life living outside with a feral colony, fending for myself and eating scraps of food from a nearby restaurant dumpster. A kind lady was doing TNR (trap-neuter-release) in the area, and I ended up in one of her traps because I was so hungry and there was food inside. Needless to say, I was terrified to be stuck in there, but she quickly took me to the doctor to be “fixed” before going back to my feral family. While I was recovering from my spay surgery, the lady saw potential in me and couldn’t bear to put me back outside in the cold. After a month of love and patience, I finally decided the lady wasn’t so scary after all and I flopped over then started purring! To this day, I am still a big “flopper”. Sometimes you have to approach me slowly so I don’t get scared, but once you give me a little chin scratch I will melt. I flop all over the place so I can get pets in just the right places, especially my belly. What I really love, though, are booty scratches! My foster mom called me “Wiggle Butt” because when I want to be petted, I’ll turn and shake my tail side to side. This is cat-speak for “please, oh please, scratch by the base of my tail!”
I’m just a mellow girl who is beautiful as can be! Everyone tells me I should be a model – I even have a beauty mark. My partner-in-crime is my girl Pebbles. My foster mom called us “Velcro sisters” because we’re always stuck to each other. I love other cats too, and I especially like to rub heads when I’m walking by them. I tend to hang back when the other kitties play, but I’ve been known to chase the laser dot every now and then. Sometimes I hide under the chair when everyone else plays with “da bird” then I’ll shoot out to attack it when no one’s looking. I also have a funny habit of laying with my back legs stretched out behind me.
Because I’m still adjusting to big people, I’d prefer to have a home without any tiny people (or dogs – they’re loud and scary). Please come meet me soon! Don’t worry if I hide from you at first. I promise I’ll come around.
PS. Here’s some video footage of me and Pebbles playing - I told you I’m funny!
Josephine and Pebbles are bonded and must be adopted together.
