Meet Bridget. Everything about her is extreme. She’s extremely loving and extremely naughty. She’ll take lots of attention and work, but she’ll pay it back with lots and lots of love. And she needs a family of her own.

Bridget is about six months old. She lives in central North Carolina. She’s healthy, FIV/FeLV negative, spayed and has had all her shots for 2009.

Bridget’s first family surrendered her to us because she was biting and scratching. Since we’ve had her, we’ve only gotten a few minor scratches, and she always gives warning. She’ll probably get calmer as she ages, but Bridget’s forever home will have to be OK with occasional scratches. Households with small children will probably not be a good match.

Bridget loves playing with other cats. She interacts better with people when she can get her energy out playing with feline brothers and sisters. Her foster home has seven other cats, and she plays with them all. If there are not other cats in the home, she’ll need lots and lots of interactive play time with her people. Without it, she tries to play by biting and scratching at inappropriate times.

Bridget asks for lots of love. In her foster home, she likes to drape herself over people’s necks while they sit on the couch, and she sleeps in the bed, preferably on someone’s face or in someone’s hair. She likes to wash your face, nibble your chin, and give head-butts, all while purring very, very loudly. She’s a talker, and will tell you all about it if she thinks you need to pay attention to her. She is getting better at being told “no” and getting put down, but she still protests and sometimes tries to scratch when she doesn’t get her way.

Bridget is scared of boisterous dogs, but she’s smart and learns quickly, and would probably do OK in a dog household with some careful introductions and time to acclimate.

In Bridget’s dream home, she has other cats to play with, and some toys too. She lives indoors all the time. She gets to keep her claws (she’s fond of them). She goes to the vet whenever she feels under the weather and once a year for her check-up and vaccines. She gets to drape herself all over her owners, and sometimes, if she’s good, wash their ears in the middle of the night. And she gets to stay forever.
