Approx Age: 12 years 
Domestic Mediumhair
Female, spayed

Misty is a long-haired tortoiseshell with a wonderfully soft coat that barely sheds and never seems to become matted. A 12 year old senior, she has lived through some ups and downs and has proven to be remarkably resilient and adaptable.

Misty lost her home when her owner moved and wandered for at least 2 weeks before she was picked up and taken to a shelter. Although emaciated from her ordeal, she was so charming that shelter staff and volunteers considered her very adoptable. Alerted to Misty’s disappearance by someone who knew her, Dusty Paws found her at the shelter and pulled her into foster care.

In her first foster home Misty lived amicably with other cats and even with dogs. She is currently fostering with a young family. Following is a report from her foster mom:

Misty is above all a sweetheart and would be a perfect addition to a home where she will get a lot of love and affection. She is a people focused cat, immediately friendly toward new people and very patient with our 3 year old son. She is incredibly well behaved in the home, flexible and mellow. Very tolerant of being an indoor cat, she doesn’t try to sneak outside - enjoys sleeping in the sun and listening to the birds from the window. She also loves sleeping on laps - and in bed with you if you let her. (She won’t complain if you don’t).

Misty is an older cat, so spends much of her time sleeping, cuddling and eating. However, she has surprised us with a playful streak that comes out when she spots a good string.

Misty is doing well. She has regained her weight and some medical issues common to older cats are being successfully addressed.  If you are interested in this lovely senior cat and would like more information, please contact Paulette at This email address is being protected from spambots.
