“Hi, my name is Vaquita — I’m an energetic 6-month-old kitten with a heart condition but my heart condition in no way slows me down. I’m ready to live my life to the fullest! My foster mom took me in because I wasn’t doing too well at the shelter… I was pretty shut-down and was not eating very well. When she brought me home and helped me settled into my room and I quickly made myself at home. My foster mommy says I eat more than any cat or kitten she’s ever come across but I burn it off chasing around and teasing my foster siblings. I’m a typical kitten very curious and so far not afraid of anything, including the vacuum. If the vacuum comes anywhere near me I do not run but I smack it with my paws to show it who’s boss. I do have to be watched around the liquids of any kind as I have a slight obsession! I’ve been caught splashing in the toilet, constantly in the sink whether it’s empty or has dirty dishes in it…Oops! Annndd my foster mom has even caught me trying to dip my paws into her wine glass when she turns her back… So look out for me and my slippery paws!
When I’m eating my wet food and it gets stuck in the corners of the bowl, I will scoop it out with my paws and put it in the middle of the dish so I have better access to it! Then it’s time to wash-up and I will put my paws in the wet kitchen sink and run around the floors making a bit of a mess. My mom says that I’m a tomboy and she wouldn’t change it for the world. My foster mom gives me the run of the house and doesn’t stop me from doing anything I want or giving me anything I want. I’m her little girl with the special heart who’s stolen hers. I bet that if you met me, I would steal yours too! Come on, what do you say? Let’s get together and see if we make a purrfect match!” – XO Vaquita
