prudence cat for adoption at The Animal League Central Florida No-Kill Animal Shelter

Meet Prudence!

“No animal has more liberty than the cat.”

Guess who said that? Ernest Hemingway! Guess what else? He loved cats like me!

Hi, I’m PRUDENCE! I’m what a lot of people call a “Hemingway” (or, to sound more scientific, you could call me a polydactyl). We’re called Hemingways because the famous author had a proclivity for us 6-toed cats! Who can blame him? Out paws look like little mittens! They’re unbelievably adorable.

I am a sweet girl who loves tummy rubs and head bumps. I also like jingle toys. I first arrived to The Animal League nursing two fluffy kittens (PUFFIN & POPASQUASH). Now that they’re weaned, I enjoy spending my time lounging, begging for attention, and reading the works of great American writers like Dear Mr. Hemingway!

Ok. Maybe I can’t read. But I sure would love it if you read to me!

One other thing… Mr. Hemingway once said “One cat leads to another” which I think is solid advice. I’d love to join your cat pack!
