A home with windows Sharkleberry Fin can watch the birds and squirrels go by is practically all this lady needs! She is a laidback feline, and is a wonderful cat for someone who isn't able to be home all the time.

Sharkleberry Fin has a playful streak, but does spend most of her day relaxing around the house while keeping a lazy observant eye on anything going on nearby! Soccer is Sharkleberry Fin's favorite sport! Any kind of stuffed animal or spinny/rolling toy is fair game - she bats them around and chases them with so much focus.

As Sharkleberry Fin continues to adjust, she has so much potential to be an outgoing and playful lady! For now she errs on the side of caution, and prefers to give new people some space. She is loyal to her foster though, and prefers to stick around and hang out in the same room when she comes home!

Sharkleberry Fin also enjoys observing her humans, and has gotten into the habit of shadowing her foster for a few hours at a time just to keep tabs on their daily routine, and have some calm interactions with each other. She is not necessarily a lap cat, but shows her affection by staying close and paying attention to her human.

A laidback home environment with a cat tower or even just a TV with the bird channel on it would be purr-fect for Sharkleberry Fin! She has interacted with other cats with no issue, and may benefit from a more outgoing sibling to show her the ropes! With a slow introduction she does well with dogs.
