Minerva (Minnie) is stunning TORTOISESHELL PERSIAN with beautiful gold eyes! Minnie is around 3 years old, FIV/FELV negative, spayed, and has her claws. She weighs around 10 pounds and has a luxurious and silky Persian coat that is fluffy and silky at the same time!
Minnie came into care when her previous family did not have enough time for her. There was simply too many cats, dogs, and people for Minnie to be her beautiful self and thrive. Minnie was very hesitant and shy when first entering care, but her foster mom believes that this was due to the heavy matting she had all over her body. After a shave, Minnie’s personality changed overnight and she became a magnet cat! She always wants to be where her foster mom is so she can get as many pets as possible! As her video shows, she loves plopping down next to her person, laying on her back and getting all the pets she can possibly get! She is quite simply adorable and will make anyone fall in love with her!
Minnie does not need a lot of play stimulation but she loves to climb, perch, and wouldn’t mind playing with a wand toy for a few minutes each day! However, she will tell you when to stop! She also likes springs and ball toys so her forever home should have many of those!
Minnie does need a home very experienced and aware of the grooming requirements of a Persian cat. Her coat is cottony and not silky, she will need extra care for her coat to ensure she doesn’t get matted. Additionally, she would definitely benefit from being groomed a couple times a year with a shave, especially in the summer. She has a very thick coat of fur that is very voluminous! She loves being brushed so caring for her fur should be very easy!
With this all being said, Minnie would do best in a home with no children or older children. She is a bit hesitant regarding kids but if they’re older she will be able to tolerate them. She is simply a little afraid. Additionally, she would do best in a home with no dogs and 1 or 2 friendly and confident resident cats. Minnie would love to be the center of your world and get the loving she so desperately deserves! Adoption fee $350. Fostered in Mount Prospect, IL.
