My name is Marley, and I am sweet and petite! When the HSCC pulled me from Cobb County Animal Services, I was very pregnant — in fact, I gave birth that same day, to four healthy babies who are currently safe and sound at the HSCC’s no-kill shelter.
Before my rescue, I had spent most of my life as a stray, occasionally visiting a kind couple at their home when I needed help. I started having babies when I was still a baby myself, but thankfully those days are behind me now. I’ve been spayed and have weaned my last litter, so now I’m looking forward to finally enjoying some “me time”!
I love people, and I thrive on human attention and affection. I’m also learning to intermingle with other cats, and I think I like it! I enjoy sharing head butts with my fellow felines here and have made some new buddies. For the first time in my life, I know I’m safe, so I can relax and share friendship with those around me. I’m still cautious, but it’s a healthy caution that’s well tempered by my sweet and inquisitive nature.
You might notice in my photos that one of my ears is missing its tip. The origin of this injury is a mystery; it’s not a TNR (trap-neuter-return) tip, as it’s too deep, it’s on the wrong ear, and I was pregnant when rescued! How it happened is a secret for only me to know; the nice people at the HSCC hope it wasn’t a case of cruelty, but the important thing now is that it’s all healed up and doesn’t hurt or bother me in any way.
I’d do best in a household with a low to medium level of activity. I’ll likely do fine with gentle older children, other mellow kitties, and maybe even a mild-mannered dog. I’m young at only two years old, but I’ve had to struggle up until now, so my personality is still evolving and emerging. I’m a sweet, special kitty with so much to offer, and I hope for a loving forever home where I’ll be allowed to blossom in my own way and on my own schedule.
If you think I would be a good fit for your home, please call 770-428-LOST (5678) to set up an appointment to come meet me! I have been spayed and microchipped and am up to date on all my vaccinations.
