Meena the cat needs a loving home in the Calgary area

Hi! I’m Meena and I’m looking for a very special home. I can be a bit shy at first, so I’m looking for a family that is willing to be patient and go slow with me until I can get to know you and feel comfortable.

Loud noises and children are too much for a cat like me; I can also be a bit sassy, so I’m looking for a stress-free, adult-only home with no other animals. I am a friendly and affectionate lap cat with my foster mom and she thinks I would be happiest in an experienced household that can read my body language. I do find some kinds of people scary when we first meet (like men), but with time I will warm up.

I am very protective of my personal space so I will come to you when I want pets. My favourite place is on the windowsill watching the birds and curling up on the bed. Now according to the vet team here, I’m carrying around a few extra pounds… okay maybe more than just a few. I would love it if my future family, alongside a veterinarian, could help me achieve a more healthy weight with a slow monitored diet and exercise plan! Since I am an extra-large kitty, I will require an extra-large litterbox – preferably one with higher sides to allow me to do my business without making a mess.

It would also be great if it were cleaned daily and kept in a low-traffic zone to ensure I have some privacy when taking care of business. The most important thing to know about me is that I am a sweet girl if you’re willing to be patient while I come out of my shell! I can’t wait to be part of your family.
