Honeydew is a cute cat with a short tail and legs. She is completely black but with a touch of frost on one of her ears. She likes attention and loves ear and head scratches but is not a lap cat (yet!). She is not timid of new people at all but is still getting used to being a house cat. She is mostly a ground dweller and picks a few spots she sticks to before she ventures out to explore the rest of her house.
Honeydew likes to chat. She gives you her full meow when she would really like to remind you that she needs something, but mostly has a cute quiet chirp that she uses when she makes eye contact, or a low murmuring trill when she is talking to herself on her house patrols. She is very playful and loves toys she can grab and kick, little catnip toys she can chew, and wand toys that you move around for her. She does tend to grab at hands and play bite when she is playing and stimulated. She has never hurt anyone but may not be best with very small children until she learns that hands are not toys.
Honeydew is very easy going in new situations and doesn’t take long at all to get used to new people and cat friends. Her foster home does not have a dog, but on a recent adventure at Petsmart she didn’t seem to be bothered by dogs. She also learned to walk on a harness immediately and walked around Petsmart with no fear. We think she would love to be taken outside for walks once the weather is a little nicer.
If you are looking for a cat that is cute and fun and sweet, but not “in your face” with affection, Honeydew may be the one for you.
