Hi! My name is Petunia (or like my foster mom calls me sometimes, Toot or P-Toot). I am a 6-year-old spayed dark gray tabby female. I have lived with my foster mom for one and a half years since my first mom passed away. I’m a sweet girl with beautiful, soft fur and gorgeous green eyes.

I’d like a home where I am the only cat, as I don’t always like other cats, especially ones that play rough. I’m getting used to having a kitten in my foster home, but would prefer it to be just me and my humans. I love to lay on my back, stretch out my paws, and have my foster mom rub my belly and side. I also love to rub my head up against my foster mom’s head to get some pets and scratches.

I’m not a picky eater, but I really enjoy some canned cat food as a treat once a day. I will sleep with my foster mom as long as there aren’t any other cats on the bed. 

My foster mom says I’m adorable and very easy to love. Do you have room in your home and heart for me?
