Pet of the Week: Olive McCracken, a short-hair cat who looks like an Oreo and is just as sweet

Meet Olive McCracken, a domestic short-haired kitty who’s crossed state lines in search of a new home.

Here’s what Olive’s friends at 4Paws Rescue Team have to say about her:

Olive came to 4Paws from a partner rescue in Charles Town, West Virginia. She had been adopted with another cat when she was a kitten, but her owner needed to move into a place that didn’t allow animals. Olive was returned to her original rescue, but their fosters were full so they reached out to 4Paws for help.

Olive is a wonderful cat, very loving to people and tolerant of being handled and petted. Olive likes to sit on laps but doesn’t demand attention while she is there. She won’t try to get you to pet her or nudge your hands with her head if you are busy typing on the computer or holding reading material.

Olive’s birth date is October 4, 2018, so she is at the age where she is beginning to appreciate a calmer, quieter life. She still likes to spice it up by playing with a fishing pole toy or batting stuffed toys around. She always takes a few minutes before diving into her meals to say “hi and get some pets from her foster. She has a good appetite and eats all the different flavors of food. Olive can be picky about her cat friends and enforces a “personal space bubble with other cats. We think she would do well on her own, with a submissive male kitty, or with a calm dog – she likes her foster’s large, senior dog, for example. She would do well with older children.

Olive has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and tested negative for FeLV and FIV. She has been eating Fancy Feast wet and Blue Buffalo Sensitive Stomach dry kibble.

Could Olive be the right companion to bring peace into your life?
