Hi, I'm Ava and I'm named for Ava Gabor because I'm so beautiful! I am the mama of 6 darling kittens and will need to be with them until they are old enough to fly solo but after that I would love to have a person of my very own. I am a very unique looking girl since I look like a long-haired black cat at a glance but I have little areas of tortoiseshell that are so subtle and pretty including the spectacular gray ruff around my neck. One of those torti areas is by my eye which you can see in my pictures. I am very affectionate with gentle handling and I'm not shy. I love company and will rub around your legs to ask for pets. When you sit on the floor with me, I enjoy laying down with my back leaning against you so you can pet me. I also love to talk. I don't talk constantly but occasionally I like to hold a conversation with you. Come see me and admire my beauty. But most importantly, be my gentle friend.
