Camille is a young adult female short hair Dilute Calico cat.
She came to us early Spring of last year pregnant, delivered five adorable kittens, of which all but one have been adopted.
Once her kittens were old enough, they stayed in their foster home while Camille came to my home.
It was touch and go for quite awhile. She didn’t like other cats, she didn’t like dogs, seemed like she didn’t like the color of our walls!
But then, as with most cats, she came around, decided it wasn’t so bad after all. Maybe it was the couch that finally won her over.
Camille loves the couch, she has her spot at the end where she will curl up for her many naps through the day.
If Rimmer, Heaven Forbid, claim her spot on the couch, she will walk up to him, raise her paw and smack him right on the nose.
Rimmer is not dumb, he moves.
Camille will share the couch, it’s a long couch after all. And in fact, this afternoon, I was curled up with my grand daughter watching a TV show with Rimmer and Peanut and Tallahassee the kitten and Camille too! Camille shares, but she is bossy sometimes.
Camille is well behaved, does well with the other cats and even plays part of the time. She will play chase and she enjoys cat toys.
She is just fine with dogs but it’s more of a live and let live existence. She is entertained by watching them, and on chilly days she can be found curled up against one for, you know, they are warm!
I was surprised though, to find out how much she adores children. Since the arrival of our five year old Grand-
twins who are visiting over the Holiday, a holiday extended due to freezing blizzard weather, Camille has come to life! She follows them, lays with them, watches them, curls up with them, lets them drag her about with her legs dangling in the most undignified manner you can imagine.
Camille is in the family room and basement floors. She waits at the door of the family room for the children to come play. She sleeps in their toys, and pushes their hands when they are playing until they pet her.
This amazes me because remember, when I first brought her here she was a bit of a brat.
Perhaps the perfect home for Camille is one where she is the one and only pet, a home with children.
Or maybe another cat or a dog.
Camille has proven one thing, it may take her a bit more time, but she does adapt to new settings and then she thrives.
So, she would do well in most any home.
Camille does love to be curled up in a lap, she gives kisses, licks our legs sometimes and purrs like crazy.
She has, need you ask, perfect litter box habits.
Camille has evolved into a really nice family cat.
