Meet Selkie!

When given the choice between playing and loving, Selkie may have to think about it – she enjoys both. She can play by herself and keep occupied, but she loves to be with her humans, too. Imagine how much fun she has when she gets to play with her people. Bring out the feather wand and she’ll be over the moon!

About ten months old, Selkie is working her way through learning all her best skills. She’s litter box trained and uses her scratching post. She’s quite the conversationalist and will be vocal when she’s eager to spend time with her people. Don’t be surprised if she spends her time in the same room with you just in case you have a few moments to cuddle and play.

She has yet to be introduced to other animals, so she might enjoy being your one and only. Selkie did spend time until recently with her sister, so she may find a feline friend a wonderful way to play the day away.
