Gorgeous sleek black cat with green eyes.
Known History & Temperament
Espresso Martini came from the pound and was very nervous when she first arrived in Mt Lawley. She spent weeks hiding under the bed, but eventually decided that she wanted to live the good life and came out from hiding. She can be still bit a bit skittish, but loves a cuddle, a good rump scritch and a good chin scritch. Will sleep on the bed occasionally, but is still adjusting and will often run away when her carer gets out of bed.
She doesn’t take to new people immediately, but will be friendly towards house guests after a day or two.
Can be a bit cheeky when the mood takes her, even with visitors.
- Not really sure yet. I’m still learning about this cat
Interests and Hobbies
Likes food, but doesn’t spend all day begging for the next meal.
Loves watching every move her carer makes, until she fall asleep.
Loves fuss and attention
Loves the ‘red dot’ but can never catch it!!
Recently has started to sit in front of the heater
The robovac, but will tolerate it now, for a while.
Is still skittish so can react differently to things from day to day.
If you have a fire, and want a hearth cat, Marti could be your girl.
Marti with the resident house cat and enjoys playing games with him, but has not been best pleased when other cats or kittens have been introduced to the house. Marti would probably be best as an only cat, or a second cat depending on the temperament of the resident cat.
Would be OK with being left alone during working hours.
Not tested with children of any age or with dogs.
No apparent problems.
Vet advised that she needed to gain weight when she first arrived from the pound, but she has filled out a bit since arriving so may need to have her food intake monitored.
