Meet Scatty

Scatty (Scatty Cat) is a little sweetheart. Although born outside, besides being rather timid with strangers, she shows no signs of anything feral, she is a very gentle cat, dainty and pretty

the only one of her siblings to immediately use the litter tray. She startles easily but then covers her silliness with a game of leap about

hence Scatty. She often sits up on her haunches like a meerkat to get a better look around. She takes a little while to get used to people, but now accepts me like a second mum, likes to headbutt my nose (on her level), trip me up as I hang washing and hurl herself onto her back for tummy rubs. Moths and flies are very entertaining, as she sits on the windowsill observing kitchen life. Likes to be inside and outside, but once inside prefers a dining chair to the couch unless her favourite human is sitting there waiting for a play. She is quite attached to her brother Shannon but if separated I suspect she will attach herself to any other animal she ends up living with as she is very affectionate. Has a quiet miaow, usually heard when she's nervous or not sure of something.

Scatty comes desexed with all her vet work done.

Scatty was adopted on 27 February 2013 after 2 months in foster care
