Kate the Cat is our latest featured feline available for adoption

According to eyewitness reports, Kate was last seen running up to a volunteer visitor, rubbing herself back and forth against his legs, and then proceeding to lick his ankles. This behaviour continued until a wand toy was brought out, at which point she played and played until it was time to snuggle into one of her beds. Reporting live from the Toronto Humane Society!

Kate is a sweet girl who loves company. Playtime is her favourite. She especially loves to play with wand toys and puzzle feeders! Now… about human hands… Not to be rude, but she wants people to know that not every flippin cat likes the touch of those long human fingers and weird, clammy palms! No offence or anything, but can’t she show you her love by rubbing up against your legs? Playing with the wand toy? Purring at you from a distance? Hiding in her hidey house when there’s a loud noise? Kate’s a nervous lady who doesn’t do well with touching and loud noises!

She’s also had problems using the litter box! She’s a little embarrassed about this, so don’t tell her we told you. She’s made serious improvements since being with us, and is excited to continue these improvements at her new home! She hopes to have an extra-large, uncovered litter box that’s super clean.

Kate is a very sweet and sensitive girl who would love to find a more quiet home without young children. She is full of love. She just doesn’t like being touched very often!
