Nyla – All Orange Tabby

DOB 2/3/18

She is not at the shelter, hoping to rehome them from foster. contact the shelter for more information.

Nyla is super sweet and loves to lie on you, be petted, will purr for as long as she's there. She has not intentionally bit or scratched, is not mean, but does love bites.

Nyla is a dominant one, likes things her way, but is super lovable. She uses the litter box. What she wants a lap but loves to play.

She will sleep with you and loves to be by your side, but she also likes her little cat tree, Foster has it on a shelf and this will be coming with her as well as her toys and litter box. Sometimes when up at night, she leaves toys by shoes ar on the couch.

I do have scratching posts and Nyla will use them, She will try to use my couch, I have the water handy for her. I think she does it out of spite though, she likes to make me get up off the couch. I do keep her claws trim, but Nyla doesn’t like it as much and wiggles. Never has she intentionally bit me are scratched me.

She is a cat, so yes will shed. I brush her, have cleaned her teeth, and trim their nails regularly. Nyla is not a needy cat, but does like attention, to be loved on and played with. She is not allowed on my counters and does pretty well as long as I don’t make it easy for her. Nyla likes to test ya, so she waits till you are home to get on things she isn’t supposed to.

Nyla has been free fed, and watered and likes to drink from the sink, Nyla will meow for her water and talks some.
