Quail

Domestic Short Hair

 
Medium  |  Female

Austin, TX

 

Quail was a shy kitten, and now she is a shy young cat. Based on that, we are confident that Quail will be a shy adult cat! When she is in a new situation, or is meeting new people, or is uncertain about whatever is going on, she finds a dark cubbyhole-kind-of-place to hide out in, wait, and see what develops. You can't rush her; she has to emerge when she is ready. Yes, Quail is rather timid, but she isn't defensive, just very cautious! And oh-so-sweet. She likes to have the side of her face scratched, and also enjoys tummy rubs. When she isn't hunkered down in her safe place, she snuggles in your lap and purrs! And being a young cat, you can easily engage Quail in play; she seems to like string and feather toys, as well as toy mice. Once she is comfortable in her new home, however, we suspect that she and her human companion will discover all sorts of ways she likes to play, and things she likes to play with. It's probably safe to assume that the best home for Quail is quiet, low-key, and populated with a couple of patient adults who respect her, understand her, and help her come out of her shell. She has been fine with the kittens she has known in her past, so it is possible that she would be okay with another mellow cat, one that wouldn't bully her. If you think a demure cat is the perfect cat for you, don't delay; contact us today to meet Quail! She needs your love.
