Featured Furry: Evelyn

There is quite a special cat at Wayside Waifs in Kansas City right now. Her name is Evelyn and she's a very pretty 3-year-old Tortie girl. She's been at Wayside for a couple of months now, so she's way overdue for finding her forever home.






Evelyn is very sweet. As soon as Mom entered her hug room, she stood up and started rubbing on Mom, reaching up with her paws and giving Mom headbutts. Mom couldn't resist giving her kisses! With a kitty that cute and loving, I bet nobody could resist.


Evelyn is going to need to be an only pet in a house without small children. She will also need experience cat owners. You see, Evelyn has what is known as Tortitude. It isn't a bad thing, it just means you need to be able to understand when she has had enough and to leave her alone. She also needs someone who will work with her on what appropriate play behavior is. When Mom was playing with her with a wand toy, Evelyn forgot for a moment that she was supposed to chase the wand and grabbed Mom's leg instead! That was a big sign that play time was over and Evelyn needed some calm-down time.






Evelyn is a very smart girl. Some of the volunteers are working on teaching her tricks. This type of training will help to control her Tortitude. If she had a positive outlet for her energy, she will learn to use it properly.

If you think you could handle a cat as independent and smart as Evelyn, you should visit her at Wayside and see if you are a good match.
