Malika is a busy young lady looking for her forever home! Looking for an active girl? That is what she is! Malika plays well by herself but especially enjoys having you play with her with a fishing pole type toy, tossing noisy balls or any of her other toys. She also gets along well with another active, playful cat or kitten for games of chase and wrestling. She is a little shy around children (above 10 years) but should adjust just fine. Malika comes for attention and follows her foster humans around to help with chores. She is not a lap cat at this age, but will plop herself near you when you are sitting for some petting. She has met well-mannered dogs and does not think she wants to live with one!
