Bev's Story

Hi there, I’m Bev! I’m an independent senior kitty who can be a bit bossy at times… what can I say, I’m a little set in my ways!  I’m not thrilled about being here at the adoption center, and I recently spent about 6 weeks in a foster home where I had a blast hanging out with my foster mom. I absolutely loved to play fetch with milk rings, and would run after them until I got tired. I have excellent litter box habits and loved using a horizontal scratching post, so I really hope my ‘furvever’ family has one on hand in my new home!

I am social in a home environment and always liked to be in the same room as my foster mom, but being a lap cat isn’t exactly my style. I enjoy chin scratches and head rubs, but I don’t particularly enjoy being held or pet below my neck (I told you I was set in my ways!)  Although I can get a bit nippy at times, I give clear signals about how I’m feeling-- so as long as you let me call the shots, we’re going to get along just fine! I would make a wonderful friend and companion to any cat-savvy adopter who appreciates a cat who knows what she wants… and that’s a ‘purrrmanent’ home!  Could that home be yours?  

  • I’m a people person! 
  • I love chasing toy mice and feather toys
  • I need an experienced adopter.  


  • Keep me company! I prefer homebodies who are often at home
  • I’d love to find an adults-only home
  • I enjoy playtime and attention, but I'll let you know when I'm ready to play
