Captain Calliope the pirate kitten is a superstar cat! Don't feel bad about her missing eye- she was born with a malformed eyeball that never developed properly, so she's never known life to be any different from how she is now. Calliope is equal parts lap cat and playtime juggernaut- she is active and likes to wrestle, climb, and run laps around the house with her foster siblings.
Calliope's hobbies include playing with her foster mom's hair, starting WWE-style wrestling matches with other sometimes-willing kitty participants, people watching from the window sill, and napping on her foster parents' laps, regardless of whether it's a convenient time or not. She will also occasionally groom other cats in the home, and will chase after any toy you throw for her.
Calliope is such an active, social cat that she must go to an adoptive home where there is another friendly and playful cat present!
Name: Calliope Age: ~4.5 months Reason for surrender: found as stray Animal ID#: A31954644
