What should the next family should know about Misty: She's honestly a sweet old lady looking for a furever home. If you have the time to love her, and don't mind a chatty, slightly needy cat, she might be for you. Also, during the warm months I set her down in the backyard amd she had a great time exploring, harness training may be something to look into. She also hates being picked up, it's like she doesn't feel stable. Her claws come out when she is picked up, but not to purposely scratch, but to secure herself from falling. If you need to attempt it, do so with long sleeves.
