Five reasons adult cats make great pets:

  1. Adult cats already know who they are, so what you see is what you get. Lap cat or playful, cuddly or independent, an adult cat never bothers to hide its true personality. 
  1. Adult cats require less attention and supervision. They’re quiet companions. They have well-developed manners about the litter box and the scratching post. 
  1. After a long day at work, you may just want to come home and curl up with a furry friend. An adult cat will be more than happy to sit with you after dinner and watch your favorite shows on TV. Adult cats are masters of serenity. 
  1. Adult cats may sleep at the foot of your bed, under the bed, or snuggled in with you. They are generally happy to sleep when you do. 
  1. Adult cats are usually better companions for the young and the elderly, as well as for any family that prefers quiet. Adult cats are more mellow and often more patient. They have experience with humans and have learned to live with us (lucky us!).

Moshi is a beautiful dilute tortoiseshell cat 3 years of age. Moshi was found as a stray. Moshi is a calm cat and a little shy but she comes running for attention and loves to be held and petted. Moshi would make a great companion while you watch TV, read or use the computer.  She is learning to play with toys. She would do best as only cat in home.
