She is a 1 year old little girl who loves to play and get into things....especially the cabinets! She gets along well with the other cats and is also very talkative! When she isn’t playing or sleeping she spends a good part of her day trying to get into the upper cabinets in our big cat room (we don’t have a room specifically for Big Cats, but we do have a big room where a lot of the cats spend their time). She's pretty clever! Sometimes during the night, despite the latches on the cabinet doors, she manages to get one open and we find her the next morning comfortably lying among the stored cat beds and towels.
Mandy was returned to us a couple of months ago because the owners said that she “wasn’t a lap cat”. Well, I have personally seen her relax in a volunteer’s lap, so I know that statement isn’t entirely true. What I suspect is that she had no desire to sit on the laps of the owners. She wasn’t treated very well by them and she used to hide from them a lot. I’m biting my tongue not to say anything about them, except that they were wise to bring her back to us when they decided that they no longer wanted to care for her. And, no, we did not let them choose another cat.
We think that Mandy would be fine living in a home with another cat(s). We don’t know whether or not she gets along with dogs. Because her social skills are a little undeveloped we feel that she will do best in a loving home with owners willing to be patient with her.
