Mimosa is starting early with a request from Santa: she would like a forever home. She is a tri-colored, spayed cat born in June 2014. Mimosa is quiet, calm, active and easygoing. She enjoys petting, brushing, playing with wand toys and being near people but not picked up. She is passive with most cats, gets along with kind children and is shy around strangers. She has a sibling available, too.
