Meet Pumpkin

Pumpkin is a female Exotic Shorthair cat. She is four years old and has an absolutely divine temperament. Her purr motor is always switched on! Pumpkin has a gentle, sweet personality which echoes the traits of her ancestors, the Longhaired Persian. She loves attention and rolling on her back for belly rubs! Headbutts are her signature move and as she has previously lived with other cats and dogs, she can adapt to different home situations. Pumpkins coat only requires a weekly brush to keep it in good shape. As with other flat faced breeds, her eyes are prone to tear overflow and staining so she would need these regularly wiped clean. She is very accepting of having this done to her and as she has also been used to taking regular baths, one can simply pop her in the tub for a scrub and she makes no protest! Pumpkin isnt a fussy eater and has been enjoying beef mince and both wet and dry cat food whilst in my care. She is missing a front tooth so can have some difficulty in chewing larger dry food bits but if served smaller dry kibble, she manages well. Simply put, Pumpkin is a sweet loving girl who greatly deserves your attention! Her adoption price of $200 includes her desexing, vaccination and microchip. She is also up to date with her flea and worm treatments.

Pumpkin was adopted on 01 August 2012 after 4 days in foster care
