Mano is an independent and curious kitty who still needs a lot of space and time to destress. She loves to rub up against new visitors, play with her favorite toys, and explore new spaces. While she is very curious, she has plenty of her own things to do and her go-to places. She sleeps in her bed every night or next to the plant stand (which she has not once gotten into or messed with!) and is usually a pretty hands-off kitty, other than playing of course. With her sleek black coat, Mano does like being brushed, especially on her head, but only for a little and on her own terms. She is often content curling up in the room with you, never hides, but is mostly busy doing her own thing. Lately, she has been warming up to pets (when she wants pet she purrs so hard!), but again, on her own terms (after she rubs up against you she loves to have full pets down her back) as she becomes more comfortable in her new foster space. She is middle aged, but plays like a kitten, often stalking her toys and galloping from room to room. While living here, she has continuously tried to be friends with our cats, even if they never really want to be friends with any of the fosters, and might be great with a companion kitty! Mano would benefit greatly from a stress free home, somewhere she can do her own thing without being bothered and have time and space to warm up to her new owners! Her characteristic physical features are her bright green eyes, silky smooth coat, and cute little mouth.

Her fosters report:

This is great! She really deserves it, over the past few weeks she has turned a corner and seems to be getting much more comfortable in her space and with people. 
 
Mano has now become very rubby when we initially come into her room. She rubs up against you and always asks for pets. She is still very particular about how many pets she gets and for how long, but her swatting has decreased significantly and now allows for numerous strokes down her back. We are hearing her purr for the first time and it is so sweet! 
 
Once settled in on the futon in her room, she now jumps up and wants to play and check things out. When she tired out from playing she lays right next to you, rolls around purring, but again, is particular about being pet. Not quite snuggling, but definitely wants to be close and you can spend time giving a pet or two, but she definitely prefers her back by her tail, not her face or head.
 
She is still very active, loves to play multiple times a day, still loves to sit by the open window, and is very curious about the world outside her room. We have two cats of our own, and while they have been good with our other fosters, unfortunately they do not seem to care for Mano and this has made it difficult for her to explore the house. 
 
Nevertheless, she is definitely interested in our cats, she shows no signs of aggression towards our cats. Just the other way around. 
 
As for her health, she is a very easy and healthy girl. She goes to the bathroom regularly without issue, will eat wet or dry food, and in general does not seem to be bothered by much. Very hands off overall.
