This girl is as sweet as a melon on a warm summer day! Honeydew is a gentle girl with the kindest soul. She loves to roll around in her bed and let out her soft purrs, especially when getting chin scratches. This lady loves to stretch out and scratch on her cat posts, and even perch right on the top! Honeydew would be best suited in an adult home, with older children and preferably the only animal. She has done okay with other cats in shelter, but prefers laid-back, male cats best. Honeydew is on a special vet prescribed diet, that she will need to continue on to keep her body in tip top shape. She has a little extra fluff around her mid section and would love if her family helped her lose a few pounds. She is particular about her bathroom regime and prefers to have a couple of clean litter boxes laying around the house. Honeydew is ready to find a home that promises to love her forever and give her all the love, attention and care she needs to live a long, healthy and happy life!
Honeydew is awaiting a dental procedure and needs a LOCAL foster to adopt home that is flexible to bring her back for treatments and her surgery date. If that is you, then please follow the steps below!
