Arrival Story:
Artemis was the only female of a litter born to the barn cat that came with the property my mom bought. We kept mama and all four of her babies for pets and to help keep the critters away. We had them all neutered and spayed.

Artemis "Artie" is a 3 year old spayeed female. She is a domestic shorthair, white with light orange tabby splotches and caramel colored eyes. Artemis is average size and friendly, but aloof. She will walk up and rub against your leg and, if your lucky, she'll let you stroke her once or twice, that's about it. She doesn't like to be picked up at all. She is a very good hunter and helps keep critters out of our barn and chicken coop. She has been an outdoor cat all of her life and doesn't like being indoors. Artemis is appropriately named after the Greek goddess of the hunt. I think she's used to her name, but you could rename her as you like. She is spayed, shots are up to date, and she has recieved Revolution every month. She has recieved regular vet checks. She gets along with other cats once they have had a chance to get used to each other. She pretty much ignores our dogs. She has never bothered our chickens, roosters, or guinea hens. Her littermate Hermes and her adopted brother Orpheus are also up for adoption. It would be really nice if any combination of them could be adopted together. They spend a lot of time together, grooming each other and sleeping together. Although, I think each of them would do OK alone as well. We are rehoming this pretty kitty because my mom is getting divorced and moving away. She can't take them where she is going and my stepdad won't care for them properly.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Forums Motto:
Greek goddess of the hunt, moon, girls

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Sexing kittens

Still a baby:
I look just like my mommy, short hair, white with patches of orange tabby; I am the only girl of the litter; I am only 8 weeks old; I am the smallest and tend to wait for the others to eat before I do.

In Greek Mythology Apollo is my twin brother and we both carry a bow and arrow I have a litter mate named Apollo.
