My name is Joy, and I'm a sweet, loving, gorgeous Maine Coon/ domestic medium hair gal who was born in September 2017. My coat coloring is described as 'torbie,' which means that I'm a brown tabby with tinges of orange. You might say that I look like I was sprinkled lightly with caramel in a candy factory. I've got a luxurious coat, and as I mature, my tail and ruff around my face will fluff up. Like most Maine Coon mixes, I should grow to be a big girl! I love to be held in your lap and petted; however, I'm still a little skittish of loud noises and the unexpected. So I'll jump down if I get spooked, yet I'll come right back because I love to be petted and brushed. So I'm looking for a human with a lot of TLC as well as patience who allows me to blossom into the loving girl who's deep inside me once I feel comfortable in your home. Once I feel secure, then I'm yours!!! I know that if you give me a chance, we will have a long, loving life together As a 3-month-old kitten, I ended up at a shelter on Christmas Day -- can you imagine? Luckily my future Buster's Friends' foster meowmy arrived the next day, spotted me, and bailed me out. So that's how I got my name -- Joy -- because I'm joyous to be ready to find a home to call my own and not live a hardscrabble life on the streets any more. I'm playful and get along great with the other foster kitties and the resident small dogs, so my home can include other 4-legged critters. I haven't been around kids, but I think I'd be okay with quiet, gentle children. Won't you arrange to meet me today so that we can start writing the next chapter in our lives together?
