Hi, my name is Margo!
My name is Margot and I am looking for a new home. I am a friendly, domestic shorthair cat, and although my exact age is unknown, I appear to be a young adult. I take some time to warm up to new people, but once I do, I am incredibly loving and affectionate. I don’t care too much for kids or dogs, so I would be perfect in a home where I am the only pet or in a home with another cat.?I am?healthy, happy, and house-broken. Learn more about me?by scrolling down?or just adopt me?by clicking the button?below (you know you want to!)

Margot is a very loving, attention-seeking girl. She purrs loudly and often, loves to be pet, especially if you are on the couch or bed, she will jump up for a snuggle purr session. Margot is very vocal and likes to talk especially when she is hungry. We got an automatic feeder to help her break that pattern. When she is in a new environment or when we return from out of town trips, she does meow a lot to express her feelings. With a little love, attention, and encouragement petting she settles down. I think it will take her a few days to a week or two to adjust to a new home and show off her best personality. She doesn’t run right up to greet strangers in our home, but is always waiting by the door when I get home from work. She usually takes a little time to warm up to new people, and might act a little unsure at first.
Margot’s Current Home Environment
950 sq ft 2 bedroom house with lots of windows for her to bird watch. We keep our home very clean and she never goes outside of her litter box, she does enjoy a clean box. She loves her sherpa fleece cat bed, tucked into a corner under a cabinet so she feels safe and secure. She spends lots of time sleeping in her bed. She’d prefer to be in our bed, but my husband has bad allergies.
Margot’s Current Family:
My husband and I work and travel a lot and we are not home as much as she’d like. I think Margot would do best with someone who can be around to give her more attention. My husband loves her but is very allergic to her, and we have our first baby on the way in December (who may or may not inherit his allergies, but we don’t want to take a chance).
Margot’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Margot loves to bat the bird feather toy (feather string attached to a stick), she also has a few little stuffed catnip mice that she keeps by her bed. She enjoys Purina or Iams indoor cat turkey/chicken flavored food, and every evening when I get home from work she asks for her half can of grilled chicken (or other poultry, turkey, beef flavor) Fancy Feast. She seems to enjoy the gravy the most. Oddly, she’s not into fish flavored food as much.
Why is Margot?Being Rehomed?
My husband is very allergic to her, but loves her and loves cats. It’s been a tough decision and he’s suffered with discomfort and daily allergy medicine (tried many brands that all seem to grow less effective). We always keep the bedroom door shut, b/c funny enough, Margot likes to go sit right on his pillow if she gets in. We have our first baby on the way in December, and want to make sure we cut down on potential allergens. I’ve also noticed that Margot is very scared of children and babies, she doesn’t seem to understand these tiny humans and she gets very uncomfortable and hides when we have a small visitor in the house.
Margot’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
I think Margot would thrive as an only pet who gets lots of love and attention. She is also independent (used to my husband and I working all the time) but I think she would be so appreciative of a little more affection. It is a toss up if she would bond to another older cat like she did with Chester… she might have room in her heart for another best friend, but as with introducing any 2 cats, it’s a toss up. I think a more passive cat would work as her friend.
