Hi. My name is Beatrix and I am what's called a ‘big kitten!' That means that even though I almost have my big cat body, I'm only 10 months old and I'm still a crazy, little kitten! My sister and I came a long, LONG, way to get to the shelter. We drove all the way from down south to reach Lakeland and find a family. I need another cat in the home, and my bestest friend is my sister Magnolia! I love to snuggle up with her, and she often wraps her paws around me before grooming me. We also are often found playing together, I love chasing her around and jumping on her. I would love to go home with her, we hope we can find a family that's willing to take us both. I would do best in a home with adults and/or older teenagers who understand my needs and boundaries. While I am slow to warm up, I'm starting to trust people as long as they are respectful. Often if someone is on the floor I will come over to visit them, and I love when people play with me. I adore wand toys and things on strings, playing is the best way to get to know me. However I'm still learning to trust, and I need time to warm up to new people and situations. I like when people pet me, but get nervous, and will need a lot of time adjusting to a new home. The important thing is that my new family takes their time to get to know me, and lets me grow to trust them at my own pace.

If you're looking for two playful little kitties, and are willing to take your time with us, then please come visit me and Magnolia in the Coral room!
