CALLIOPE

Calliope 16 cover

I LOVE TO CUDDLE UP ON SOFT SURFACES…COULD YOUR BED BE NEXT?

THE BASICS:

  • SENIOR FEMALE – Est. DOB 1/12/08
  • ARRIVED:  2/12/11
  • PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:  DSH Calico with lots of white
  • HISTORY:   Calliope was found as a stray in the Lake Monticello area.  She was pregnant and gave birth to five beautiful kittens shortly after arriving at CFC.

In mythology, my namesake was the inspiration of epic poetry and my name translates to “Beautiful-Voiced”, but I’m just a simple young momma cat.  I gave birth to 5 beautiful babies here at the sanctuary and everyone here agrees that there could not been a more attentive, patient, or loving mom.  I even let kittens from another litter nurse on me.  Now my greatest joy is just hanging out, finding the perfect patch of sunshine on our outdoor patio in which to bask and await the next Calliope admirer to come along.  Reach down to stroke my soft calico hued fur and I may just stretch out as long as I can in the enjoyment of the moment.  At this point I’m not a lap cat, but now freed of parental obligations you just never know how my personality will develop.  What is certain is that I am gentle and sweet.
