Wanda is a skinny, scrappy little kitty with lots of personality!

Wanda, what a catch! Good with other cats and dogs, mellow but with a mischievous streak, a loving mother and devoted friend. Why on earth isn’t all of Kansas City falling down at her doorstep?



Wanda, aka Pool Shark
Domestic Short Hair/Dilute Tortoiseshell Mix: An adoptable cat in North Kansas City, MO
Small • Adult • Female

Although her “Official” name is Wanda, this funny little girl has several nicknames. Sometimes we call her “Mellow Yellow”, because her eyes are the same color as Mellow Yellow soda. “Mellow” also fits her when she’s sprawled out, chilling without a care in the world. And unbelievably, she doesn’t seem to care when I vacuum around her. I’ve never had a cat that would lay there while I vacuum in the same room, much less under the chair she’s in, or with the vacuum pushing the kitty bed she’s laying on!

Other times, we call her “Momma cat” because when she came to us, she was quite pregnant, and had a litter of kittens. She was a proud and protective momma, and the nickname stuck.

Recently, we’ve started calling her “Pool Shark”, because she has figured out how to get the pool balls out of our pool table! Granted, it’s an old table, and it’s easy for me to pull them out…but I couldn’t believe it when she did it! She’s a petite little thing, and I’m surprised she had aspirations to play with pool balls! After she gets them out, she bats them around.

I would guess that Wanda is about a year and a half old. She enjoys going outside on the patio, or will follow me as I weed and water my flower bed. I think she would be equally happy as an indoor or indoor/outdoor kitty. She’ll follow me all over, but doesn’t make any motion to go out the door when I let the dogs out. She just sits there and waits for them all to come back in. But if you offer for her to go out, she’ll follow you.

See all of Wanda’s pictures on her online album here.

Wanda is extremely social, and is still quite a little fiesty kitten sometimes. She was a wonderful mother, but that’s over now and she wants a little spoiling of her own! Wanda kneads ALL the time, and loves to be with people. She’s not obnoxious about it, but she follows me everywhere I go. Wanda is not a lazy and laid back kitty all the time. Sometimes she has a lot of spunk and personality.

Wanda would love to be someone’s companion kitty. She plays with other kitties, and will chase and gallop around with them. I think she would do fine with another kitty, given a little space at first.

Wanda would do fine with dogs, because she doesn’t hesitate to put them in their place. For such a little kitty, she’s kinda mighty. She would not do well with a dog that gets mad when swatted, because she WILL swat at them when they get too close. Then again, she’ll also curl up with them on the bed for a nap.

Her vetwork is up to date, and she is spayed. She’s very healthy, active, eats great, and is perfect in the litterbox department.

Wanda has been sponsored, so her adoption fee is minimal.

Go! Adopt her! Now!

Just one thing: keep her inside so she doesn’t kill any other animals (not just birds, but also lizards, snakes, chipmunks…the list goes on!), and for her own safety as well. Deal?
