Check out Persimmon's Videos!

"Let's play ball!" are Persimmon's favorite words. This kitty is clearly practicing for the Kitty Soccer World Cup. Her ball handling skills are impressive to see (check out her videos!). With a young kitten's energy she leaps, catches the bouncing ball, bats it to a new location, picks it up with her claw and controls it like a good soccer kitty then turns ready for the next throw. While "fetch" is not her style, she has been known to bat her ball at her foster family in hopes of initiating her favorite game and if that doesn't work she'll bring the ball to you!

Persimmon is also a lady who holds up her end of the conversation. With Persimmon around your comments are always responded to promptly with her impressively large and varied vocabulary of "meows".

Persimmon's beauty is only exceeded by her LOVE of her human friends. The hours stretch long for her when her humans are gone and she will greet them upon their return with infinitely joy. She will run back and forth by your legs getting as many pets as possible, roll over on her side and hug whatever is handy in the hopes of more pets and signs of affection from you. She is so joyous that is it impossible for her to stay still....but she is only one's year old after all, barely into adulthood.

This lovely lady will also be an excellent hostess to your human visitors, greeting each at the door with gentle kindness, requesting a simple toll of a few pets for the privilege of entering the house and hoping the guest will share their sweaty shoes with her (Check out the videos and photos of her going nuts over a teenage boy's sweaty shoes!)

Despite her youth Persimmon never scratches anything but her cardboard. A more gentle cat would be hard to find. All she wants in life is a forever home with people to love....

She has only two tiny requests of her new forever family....please let her be the only cat in the house and be around a lot for her to love on you. She gets sad when left alone for long periods of time and can't abide cat competition.
