Hi there! My name is Olive, and I'm an affectionate, laid-back, petite beautifully marked gray-and-white tuxedo DSH mix gal who was born in June 2016. I have a white blaze, bib, tummy, long white gloves, and high go-go boots. I'm a lap kitty who loves to crawl up in my foster daddy's lap and start purr-calating. (My purr motor sounds like a perking coffeepot!) If I can't crawl up in your lap, I'm content to show my love by rubbing around your ankles. I have a sweet, easy-going, quiet disposition that is reflected in my cute, soft meow, which sometimes sounds more like a chirp. I'm a very relaxed kitty who gets along with some very territorial resident Bengal cats in my foster home. (Now, that's a feat!) Although there are no kids or dogs in my foster home, I'd probably get along with both if they were gentle and cat-friendly. In late spring 2017, my two newborn kittens and I showed up at my foster mom and dad's doorstep. I was a teenage mom who was trying to get enough nourishment for myself as well as nurse my babies, but all three of us were skin and bones. With plenty of groceries as well as lots of tender, loving, care, we all became healthy felines! However, we stayed outside, and wouldn't you know, I became pregnant again before my foster parents could get me spayed. I'm happy to report that now my kitten-making days are behind me, both litters of kittens are in happy homes, and I've kissed my hardscrabble days good-bye. I love the cushy strictly-indoors life with plenty to eat (I'm not picky either!!), a warm spot for me in front of the fireplace or on a sunny windowsill, and loving humans who welcome me in their laps. I'm neat and clean with perfect litter-box and scratching-post habits. Unlike the Bengals, I'm not interested in counter-surfing or climbing the Christmas tree. I'm a little shy when I first meet strangers, but once I warm up and trust you, I'm YOURS! I'm sure that this is a skeleton in my closet from my days on the streets when I was fending for myself. Also, sometimes I try to protect my food from the other cats, but this is also a carryover from my days fighting for my food with the neighborhood strays. I respect other cats' territory, and I expect them to treat me likewise. I was a great mom, and my kittens all have good homes, so now it's my turn! As much as I love my foster home, I realize that my foster mom and dad already have a full house. So I'm looking for a quiet home where I can display my champion talents as a lap kitty. Foster mom says I'm low maintenance compared to her Bengals, so I'm sure that there's a forever home out there who's looking for a lovely companion like me. Arrange to meet me today so that we can start writing a new chapter in our lives together! Olive is updated on shots, spayed, dewormed, FIV/ FeLV negative, and ready for her indoor-only home. (She will be microchipped after adoption.) No de-clawing permitted. Her adoption fee is $100, cash or check payable to Buster's Friends.

Note: Olive is posted as a courtesy to her rescuer in hopes that networking through Buster's Friends' website postings will find a wonderful lifetime home for her. Buster's Friends is committed to reducing the number of animals who are surrendered to shelters and to assuring that fewer animals face the possibility of euthanasia. Courtesy postings for the community is one way that we can achieve this by providing a platform in which animals like Olive remain safe while still being widely seen until they are placed in a permanent home.
