Princess with a Big Heart & TailAfter 7 years, Mercedes's adopters decided that they didn't want her any more. Fortunately we know her as a loving fun cat and we'll find her an even better home the second time around.

Mercedes was shy upon her return and it took a while for her to take over the house. Now she owns the place and will tell you so. She is quite vocal when she wants to play, at meal times, and when you have provided the wrong food. She loves chasing after feather and other wand toys. She requires you to participate. It's her way of getting you to exercise.

Mercedes is not a lap cat. She prefers to sit next to her people while they read or watch television. She enjoys some grooming. It's needed to care of all that fluff.

When Mercedes returned to us she received a complete medical check up and updated vaccines. Unfortunately the vet found two problems. Mercedes has a grade 4 heart murmur and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Mercedes takes twice daily medication in her food. Fortunately Mercedes is completely asymptomatic. Her heart problems do not stop her from running around just like a healthy cat.

Come meet Mercedes and her tail. It has a life of its own.

Here is her kitten bio:

Mercedes was named after the car under which she was found. She was a scrappy little girl at 1.5 lbs, ready to take on all comers. With some TLC and regular meals, Mercedes no longer hides under the bed and prefers being with people. She knows being an extrovert is a lot more fun. While she plays well alone, attacking her toys and packing paper, she prefers interacting with her human friends getting them to move the wand toys and using their legs as launch pads. After playtime, a lap is a good place to crash. Mercedes is vocal only at meal time. She has the cutest "mew." She also likes a solid routine: food, play, nap, cuddles
