Mittens would make a comfortable fit


If you want to meet the friendliest, most outgoing cat at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center, try Mittens on for size! This 1½-year-old short-hair female is incredibly sweet. 

Mittens loves to give headbutts and truly enjoys attention, though she sometimes displays a curious habit called barbering. Barbering is another term for excessive grooming, which cats often exhibit when stressed. As a cat grooms itself, positive neurotransmitters are released by the brain providing a sensation of comfort, and Mittens has been barbering to cope with her new surroundings at the center. She may look a bit disheveled and has some hair loss due to this behavior, but her personality is amazing, and her coping mechanism will cease once she is in the comfort of a loving home. 

If you are interested in meeting Mittens, contact 949-470-3045 or apply at cmvas.org.

Is this kitten vaccinated and use the litter box? I lost my cat about 5 years ago and I am highly allergic to cats, but would like to give this a try. I am a senior and live in Laguna Woods.
