Please contact foster at Olivia is roughly 15 years old, spayed female, Maine Coon Cat, long-haired. She has incredibly cute, furry, stumpy paws that have grinch hairs peeking out. She loves being around her people, rubbing against your legs and sitting next to you as soon as you settle. When you stop petting her, she very gently reaches her paw towards you to ask for more. She has a lovely purr she uses when she's getting pets and attention which she pairs with soft and blinking eyes to tell you how happy she is. She is happy to crawl on your chest when you're laying down for closer cuddles and warmth. If you're napping, she will lay up against you and join! She LOVES treats, and gets very excited for them. This is when her most kitten behavior comes out, getting very excited and focused to get those tasty morsels. She also loves soft and cozy blankets, especially if they're positioned in the sun. She loves wet food, and when her foster mom adds plenty of water to make sure she is getting hydrated, she drinks it right up! Olivia loves the brush that her foster mom has mounted to the wall. She rubs her face and body against many many times a day and if Olivia ever gets overstimulated, she recalculates by brushing herself here. After gaining Olivia's trust, she enjoys being brushed so she can maintain her incredibly soft and luscious fur. Olivia likes to play with toys, but as she has aged, she isn't quite as fast as she once was, so go slowly with the moving/teasing toys so she can participate. Olivia is a confident gal and, after she is comfortable with you, she stays out in the open and is always ready to greet you. She is one of the first cats I've been around who isn't always finding a secret hiding spot, she prefers to be out in the open and in the action! Olivia uses the litter box well, but because she is quite a long girl, a lengthier litter box is suggested as she usually is using the potty right at the edge, lengthwise. Olivia has met her foster families two small dogs through a screen and she usually hisses but firmly stands her ground. Like most areas of her life, she does not appear to cower and stays confident in her abilities. With her age and the context her foster family has, Olivia seems to have natural aging and isn't much of a jumper, climber, etc - most likely due to old age arthritis. The signs of this so far have been - not jumping over the baby gate despite really wanting to follow her foster mom, not climbing the few steps to the window cat hammock, occasionally losing her balance when sitting up right. She does not seem to have any issues eating dry food or walking around. When she is particularly comfy and enjoying love from her human friends, she may drool just slightly (as is normal for aging pets), but it's nothing out of the norm if you've been around senior animals. It's quite cute actually, because you can tell when she is totally relaxed. Something to note, Olivia has made it to the wise age of 15 through being a bit of a spit fire. Your first week or so getting to know Olivia will be on her terms, and will take some patience as she learns to trust you. When she doesn't trust you, she will only allow a few pets at a time before she gets nervous that you are a foe. But after some time, she will love you deeply and will be happy with all the pets, cuddles, and naps. The great news is that Olivia is well worth the wait, time, and patience. She deserves a family who understands that she has had a long life, with a history we don't know but she has adapted to protect herself and we should respect that!
