Maya is a big girl with a big personality to match!  She is an extremely curious cat and has beautiful eyes. She is friendly and is good with people.  Though shy at first, Maya warmed up to her foster parents very quickly.  They had family over during a weekend and Maya loved being with them.   She loves to chase the laser light, her favorite toy.  You will be her best friend if you have a favorite toy in hand or the all important treats!

Maya is extremely affectionate. She even greets you at the door when you come home from work.  She snuggles up right next to you on the couch, making sure that she gets a bit of the same blanket you are using.  She loves to sit next to you rather than sitting on your lap. This makes watching TV easy in case you need to suddenly stand up and cheer for your favorite team — Maya will happily cheer them on beside you.

Maya is ready for attention and affection when you get up in the morning, but she waits until 7.30 – 8 am, being considerate enough about your sleeping hours :)  When she can’t be snuggled up to her people, she is quite happy to spend time perched by the window, watching for her friends (all the birds and squirrels).  She also enjoys exploring cubby holes or cardboard boxes.

All around, Maya is a wonderful kitty who would love to explore the nooks in your home, show you her playful and affectionate charms, and share her big love.
