Cat people: I guess that’s what this new family member makes us! Lookie what we brought home on Sunday..
This little girl was rescued from the streets of Los Angeles a few months ago. We saw her ad online and just HAD to meet her. After a bit of back-and-forth with the rescue agency, we were finally approved to adopt her! We later found out that she was the agency’s favorite rescue – they didn’t want to give her away to just anyone!
We considered many, MANY names for her, like Penny, Stella, Winnie, Olive and Ruby – even Raisin was in the running for a while! But once she settled in at home and we got to know her curious and mischievous nature, one name sounded perfect!
Meet Scout! We both agree it is totally fitting. She is super cute, even when she is hunting our feet under the covers as we try to fall asleep. Instead of meowing, Scout usually prefers to communicate with a low, loud purr, or a high-pitched chirp that sounds more like a bird than a cat. When she’s really happy, she combines her purr and her chirp and sounds like a cooing dove!
Scout is an orange tabby, which is pretty rare for female cats! A little research taught me that only about 25% of orange tabbies are female. She has so many cool and unique markings. I love that all four of her white “socks” are different, her orange spots on her “wrists,” and her white right cheek! Marcus’ favorite Scout feature are definitely her little black nose freckles.
She has definitely made herself comfortable in our house! While I’m in my usual spot on the couch with my laptop, her favorite perch is on my shoulder! I shot a quick video to demonstrate.
“Having a cat means never having use of both your arms.”
