    “Hi, my name is Maleficent. I came into AARCS care with my kittens. My foster mom tells me I did a really good job because my babies are all grown up and ready to go to their forever homes so now I get to find one of my very own.”

    Mal is adjusting well to living indoors. We think she has had a pretty rough start and probably spent a lot of time outside fending for herself and scavenging for food wherever she could find it. She no longer bolts for the door, she has accepted the window seat compromise where she can watch the birds go by all day. We are working on her food manners as well – she still doesn’t quite believe that there will always be a meal for her so sometimes she tries to aggressively steal food, for that reason it would probably be best if she went to a forever home with no small children.

    Mal is a sweet girl who is still learning what it means to be someone’s fur baby. She is accepting of cuddles and the occasional kiss, she will always accept chin rubs and back scratches though. She isn’t a lap cat quite yet but she has started stretching out on the back of the couch when we are sitting on it. This sweet girl had no idea what a toy was, or even how to play with one, when she came to us but just last night I found her playing with a catnip candy cane and then she played on one of the cat stands so I think she if finally getting it, or at the very least she has discovered she likes catnip!

    Mal would probably do best in a home with no other dogs. She is very hit or miss when it comes to them. I think she has been badly scared by dogs in her past life.

    Mal is going to be a sweet and loving companion given the chance. She just needs to find someone who sees her potential and is willing to be patient with her and help her learn what it means to be someone’s fur baby.

    “Give me the chance to be your girl!”
