Myrna is a tabby/tortie mix, with orange and cream colors in her coat. She is petite, with dainty bits of cream on her paws, and she has a tipped ear.
Until the summer of 2012, Myrna was a stray cat, living in a Durham neighborhood and dreaming of a home of her own. She is a cautious girl, but loving and sweet, with big green eyes that ask for gentle affection. Myrna has adjusted well to indoor life, but she still retains a protective wariness, and tends to find places to retreat (like under the bed) when she is left alone. Myrna sleeps every night with her foster parents, and she enjoys catching feet beneath the bedcovers, and playing with her feather wand. She also likes to play gently with fingers, and she will give little nibbles, but they are never hard or painful. Myrna allows herself to be picked up, too, and carried just a little bit. She sometimes trips up her foster parents in her eagerness to follow them around, and she meows excitedly when it is dinner time! Myrna would probably do best in a quiet home, with perhaps one other cat. She is, without a doubt, a kitty who desires domestic comforts and her own loving family.
Myrna was first believed to be feral, and was trapped and spayed by her foster mom through IAR in 2011. She was released, and did not reappear at her foster home until nearly a year later. Myrna demonstrated that she was much more socialized than was previously thought, and that she was also very eager to come indoors! When Myrna was accepted into the IAR foster program, it was not necessary to trap her again - she was picked up, placed in a carrier, and brought inside.
