Description:

LENA is a very friendly, curious and gorgeous young cat with bright yellow eyes. She adapted very quickly to her foster home trusting new people almost immediately. Lena doesn't shy way from noises and tends to want to check things out. She welcomes petting and loves playtime. Lean needs to be adopted into a home with an existing playful female cat.

Lena has a beautiful temperament. She loves spending most of her day near people, curling up on a blanket near you. Or sitting on the windowsill, observing the world outside. After a while, she comes to check on you – sometimes for a nice pet or to jump into your lap for a snooze. When Lena is looking for affection or play, she uses her bright beautiful eyes to purrsuade you! It doesn’t take much to get her purring, and she might even roll over to let you rub her belly. If you are working on the computer, she might get curious about what’s on your desk or screen, so be prepared for some paws on the keyboard! At night, Lena settles down with her humans sitting by the bed or jumping onto the bed to sleep. She has also been found in a drawer under the bed if she's looking for a good uninterrupted place to sleep.

Lena is quiet girl and happiest when she is  near her humans. She has the tiniest little meow that is barely more than a squeak, but you may hear it when feeding her or when she’s coming to say hello. Lena also has a playful side. Her favorite playtime activities are running after the laser pointer or jumping in the air to catch toys on a string. She prefers interactive play rather than amusing herself with her own toys. However, Lena recently got a new battery operated laser toy which she loves and is great when you need Lena to entertain herself!

As Lena has settled in, she has become a little playfully nippy. This generally means the cat needs more interactive play from humans and/or needs a feline friend. Since she gets plenty of human interaction from her foster parents who work from home, we think whayt she needs is a playful female cat to bond and play with.We haven't seen her interact with a single kitty. We got her from an organization with a large cattery. Lena didn't do well with dozens of other cats as she tended to keep to herself. We now know that lots of other cats isn't right for her but really think just one other compatible cat is what she needs.

Lena is a picky eater who prefers wet food although she will eat a little bit of dry food when left out to munch on. She is on a strict regimen of Miralax (laxative) and Vetasyl (fiber) mixed with her wet food due to a little constipation. Its important that her caretakers continue this treatment and are diligent about monitoring her stools for any future adjustments to the Miralax and/or Vetasyl.

Lena is a truly wonderful kitty who is ready for a home to call her own.
