Miss Lizzy (Miss Elizabeth Bennet to her close friends and confidants) is the loveliest calico lady with a penchant for receiving belly pets and chasing wand toys. A former community cat, this tiny teen mom made her way inside her foster familys house with her five day old kittens in tow and has been living the indoor life ever since! Lizzy had a rough start to motherhood. She came down with mastitis and had to spend few tough weeks at the vet for surgery and treatment. Once she recuperated, Lizzy came home and continued raising her boys. While at the vet, she was the perfect patient and always took her meds without fight or complaint.
Lizzy is a truly unique cat who loves belly rubs and makes the cutest goat-like noises when playing and chasing her baby boys around. Shes often found with her tongue sticking out or drinking water in the funniest way. She loves eating crunchy and soft kitty treats and hanging out with her foster family and 2 growing kittens. Lizzy enjoys the company of her foster familys Pomeranian and is longing for a forever home with at least one kitty friend, and would be happy with dog pals as well. She would be happy to find a new home together with her chunky baby Toast, whos quite the mamas boy, but its not necessary as long as she has other feline pals. Shes never met any kids but we think shed probably do well in a family with children who have proper cat manners.
We cant say enough good things about this precious girl. Lizzy has been living inside her foster home for just a few months and has adapted incredibly well considering everything shes been through. She enjoys snacks, play, and attention, and while shes still developing into an indoor girl, we know shell be the perfect addition to someones home.
