Mocha Latte’s Story

History:  Mocha Latte was tearfully surrendered to CRISP (https://www.facebook.com/CRISPpage/) because his owner was moving and could not bring her with.

About:  Mocha Latte is a shy cat who will do best with an experienced owner, or ideally someone familiar with the traits and personality common to this breed.  Her foster mom described her as: Cuddly, Shy, Active, Adventurous, and Feisty.  We feel that those words pretty much sum up the snowshoe breed.  While she can be very friendly, affectionate, and cuddly with her foster mom, it needs to be on her terms.  At night she chooses to sleep in bed with her foster mom.  As can be typical for her breed, she takes a while to warm up to new people.  When visitors come over they will likely not even know she is there.  

Mocha Latte is very playful, toy mice are her favorite.  She also likes to entertain herself by looking out the windows.  Mocha Latte has never lived with any other animals. We do not know how she would be with another cat, that decision will be made on a case-by-case basis.
