What kind of home do you think would be best for this cat?
From the foster home: Micha was easily the best mom we’ve fostered for ACC so far. She really cared about her kittens and always made sure they were fed, even when she was tired. She a very sweet and very affectionate cat once she gets to know you and you won’t be able to remember a time when the two of you were not best friends. She wasn’t as ‘haughty’ as some cats, and never minded being handled. Micha is also quite the talker. She likes letting you know how she feels and can be found perching on the windowsill chirping as she sunbathes. She also talks back if you speak to her and it never gets boring having conversations with her. Micha would be a great cat for anyone: families, first time cat owners looking for an easy cat to get along with, and experienced cat owners looking for something different.

Micha is a very sociable cat that can be seen soliciting attention at the front of the cage upon approach. He allows the assessor to pet him softly without displaying any signs of aggression. Micha tolerates being picked up but becomes quickly agitated and jumps out of the assessor’s arms. After jumping away from the assessor Micha continues to head rub the assessor’s hands. The behavior department believes that Micha can go to an average home.
