This is no ordinary black cat! Cameo is a unique black kitty with lots of white markings on her underside- an "almost tuxedo". She has white toes on her back feet, white bikini marking on her belly and a white medallion on her chest. Very cute! She has green eyes that almost glow, and very dense and plush fur, longer and thicker than standard issue "DSH".
Cameo is an ever-so-gentle girl and an undemanding companion. She is the kind of cat that will always be quietly nearby and paying attention, but never on top of you. She and her sister Cassidy would be a perfect fit for the "work at home" person who would like un-intrusive cat companionship. Cameo might not immediately trust strangers, but once she knows you, she shows her trust by rolling on her back and purring whenever her person is close by. She LOVES laser pointers and feather toys, and will stalk them endlessly until you are tired. She and Cassidy were adopted as young kittens and were returned to IAR this winter after two years. Their former adopter thought they needed more space than her small apartment, and complained because they played and chased each other. They have been back in their former foster home for two months, and they are happy and comfortable in whatever space they have as long as it comes with a window perch, a place to nap, toys, and plenty of love. Cameo is healthy and happy, and ready to find her forever home.
Cameo and her sister Cassidy were rescued at about 10 weeks of age and have been indoors ever since. They were in an adoptive home for two years before being returned to IAR this winter, through no fault of their own.
