We adopted Layla, formerly Marley, in 2020 as a companion for our scaredy-cat Mint. Layla never even had an adjusting period to our home, she instantly felt like it was where she was meant to be. She’s a confident cat and has been helping her sister to trust other people. I’ve never met a cat that is so gentle! Even with play she never has her claws out. She’s not the cuddliest of cats, unless we’re in bed and then she sits on top of us waiting for pets. Our little queen loves treats, the laser pointer, her tunnel, cardboard boxes, car rides, being outside in the summer time and holding her cat teaser toys hostage when she gets a hold of it. Meal time and car rides are her favourite. When I’m getting her meal ready she meows until I put her food down and I talk to her the entire time to reassure her that it’s coming. Any time she hears the keys jingle she goes to the back door and waits patiently thinking “you know I’m coming right!?” This winter she realized she doesn’t like outside if it’s cold/snowy. In the summer she doesn’t want to come inside and now I have a little gardening partner. She’s the sweetest little bean around and brings so much joy to our lives! We are so happy to have her as part of our family.
