This is Madeleine. She is a beautiful, silky, 4-year-old, Bombay-mix, with a beyond sweet temperament and an on-demand purr.
For anyone who knows the personality of a Bombay-mix black cat, we needn't extoll Madeleine's virtues! But in case you are not familiar -- she is the most affectionate, loving, gentle, gregarious family cat you could ever know. She has the classic Bombay personality in this respect. There is a deep golden hue to her eyes, and when she looks at you, she will melt your heart. Madeleine will want to be next to you and follow you throughout the house. This is what gives the Bombay their nickname "Parlor Panther".
Sweet Madeleine was rescued by ForeverMeow in 2017. She arrived at the county shelter through the community cat program. She was found eating cat food someone put out in their yard. She was not microchipped or spayed and was nursing 4 sweet solid black kittens. Because s he and her babies were all so incredibly sweet, they were all named after French pastries! This is how Madeleine got her name - meaning a small shell-shaped sponge cake from Northeastern France.
No owner came looking for Madeleine, and she was subsequently spayed and her babies were adopted out. Madeleine was the last to be adopted at Christmas 2017. In April 2019, her family informed us that they received a job transfer to the midwest and did not have the wherewithal to take their 2 cats or 2 dogs with them on this cross country move. Hence, Madeleine is back with ForeverMeow searching for her forever home.
Should you choose to adopt Madeleine, you will be the center of her world. And we hope she will be the center of yours. Be prepared for lots and lots of purrs and rubs!! We are hoping someone out there looking to adopt a cat will resonate with her special qualities and be the loving home she desires. Please submit the adoption questionnaire (link below) if you are interested in meeting Miss Madeleine.
