Bonnie has been waiting for almost 2 years to find a loving forever home! If you are looking for a cat who will be your one and only, please consider Bonnie! She would love to be your special life-long companion!
Bonnie is a quirky little cat full of personality! Bonnie is a lovely long-haired lady who is quick to hop up in your lap while you are watching TV. She likes to be petted and talked to. Bon-Bon also loves to eat–and will let you know with her funny little chirpy meow that she is hungry NOW!
Bonnie especially enjoys watching the birds and sitting in the sun by the window. She will play on her own–often tossing her toy mouse or ball up into the air and then chasing after it! She will occasionally chase after the laser pointer too.
Bonnie is a very human-oriented cat. She tolerates dogs and mostly ignores the other cats in her foster home. She is definitely low on the cat totem pole (i.e. not very assertive/alpha)–so would be best adopted on her own or with another very mellow cat. She is easily scared when another cat chases her (even if it is done in a playful way).
Bonnie is also happy with children. However, she does sometimes very gently give lovebites. In addition to that, she perfers to play on her own–so she is really an ideal cat for an adult/older teenaged family.
She came to LDAR in Feb of 2012 from a high-kill shelter in North Carolina, where she had spent several months waiting. When she arrived, Bonnie had a lot of trouble and was scared to death of people and her surroundings. We aren’t sure of her history, but she obviously had not been taken care of before she ended up in the shelter! After many long months, Bonnie turned the corner and learned that people were kinda cool. She can still be jumpy at times, but overall, Bonnie has turned into quite a wonderful cat!
Bonnie has long hair and will need to be brushed a lot, or she will get hairballs and mats in her fur. She is getting used to brushing and lets you cut her mats when she gets them.
Like most cats, Bonnie may need 1-2 weeks in a small, contained area to help her adjust to a new environment. She is litterbox trained.
The adoption fee for this cat is $100, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. Bonnie tested negative for FIV/FeLV. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and e-mail it to Erica atAdoptMEow3@gmail.com!
