Laverne was found in a family member's back yard in Southern California. She was found with another sibling and the two were jokingly named "Laverne and Shirley" after the sitcom. After a few years, Laverne moved up to the Seattle area with my husband and myself.
Laverne is a long haired domestic cat who has been kept in doors. She has managed to sneak outside a handful of times (and thankfully returned!) but she doesn't have experience with the outdoors.
Laverne is a little girl with a big personality. She can be very shy at first but once she is comfortable with you she will like to be around you as much as possible. She is not a "lap cat" per say, but she enjoys being in the room with you (often lounging in window sills, on top of furniture, etc). She is known to strike a pose when she is most comfortable and she will lay out on her back and splay her hind legs out. Her absolute favorite place is in bed with you. She is known to snuggle at your feet or at your side. She will learn your bedtime routine, and if you stay up past your bedtime, she will remind you with her meows that it's time to retire.
Laverne lives in a home with a toddler and a newborn, and we have found out that she DOES NOT like small children. Since having children, she has spent her time in hiding. The only time she comes out is when the children are napping/sleeping. And if they get too close to her, she hisses and lets her displeasure be known. We want this girl to be happy again! Please, we ask that this little girl goes to a home without small children.
Laverne has lived with other cats, but I can't say with confidence that she will do well with another unknown cat. At this time, I feel that she would appreciate being the single kitty queen of the home.
