Cat for Adoption: Maggie


The sleek, jet-black, Maggie, 14, hails from Denmark. Brought to Japan two years ago, Maggie was unceremoniously and quite unfairly given the boot when she failed to get along with a kitten her owner’s girlfriend had. This exotic beauty could be called the ultimate feline, striking in appearance, elegant and graceful. Class imbues her entire being. She is in good health, funny, kind, independent and more mature than many people. Having Maggie around is like having a lovely, rather classy aunt in your home. She only cries when you have overslept your alarm by quite a stretch (or when it is dinner time). Maggie loves to have her tummy stroked and she never bites or scratches. She has been an indoor cat all her life, so does not show a lot of interest in going outside, but enjoys the warmth of sunny balconies and windowsills. Maggie is in Tokyo now. Please, come meet her and bring a guaranteed touch of class to your home.
