Astra is a charming, slightly goofy black cat. She has deep gold eyes, and a sprinkling of white on her throat.

Astra loves to play with a fleece teaser, and likes having her back scratched (for a brief period). She's fond of treats, and will eagerly lick baby food off my fingers. She loves sitting in the window, until the fleece or treats come out. When she's not playing, she is a quiet, peaceful cat.

She first came to me as one of four tiny kittens with her mom in August 2013. She and her mom, Luna, were adopted in November, but in July 2014, the adopting family surrendered them, and they were both re-fostered with me. The family has three young, boisterous children, and did not know how to integrate the cats successfully. Astra reportedly spent most of her time hiding in the basement. (I watched the cats for the family when they were on vacation, just before they surrendered the cats, and both cats were happy to hang out with me. They are perfectly normal cats.)

The right adopter(s) for Astra will be experienced with cats, adults or a family with older children in a relatively quiet home. Astra likes other cats, but has no experience with dogs.

When Astra first came back to me, she was scared and hid for a day or so. She gradually came out, though sudden noises may send her scampering. With patience and affection, she will be a terrific companion. The absolute best would be if she and her mom Luna (ID 20813237) could be adopted together.
