Are you looking for a kitty companion who is full of life and love to give?

SPCA of Hancock County Shelter Manager, Cole, says Diggles might just be the purrfect cat for you> was not always this gregarious of a kitty. She started out kind of on the shy side.

"When Diggles arrived at the shelter, she was so frightened that she simply wanted to hide in her bed all the time. Staff wrote on her cage card that she was shy so others would be patient with her since they could tell she was a sweet cat who just needed space and time. Well, Diggles is not shy anymore! Now Diggles is one of the cats in the lobby that will call visitors over to make sure they greet her."

Cole says she's grown to become quite a little love bug.

"She loves to talk and roll around to show off her glorious belly. She’s an adorable brown tabby who always looks a little startled with her yellow owl-like eyes, but she’ll make sure you spot her right away when you come to visit...Diggles loves to play hide and seek, gets excited for her meal times, and generally finds a way to make you smile every time you see her."

What kind of home would be the right fit for Diggles? Well, Cole says it's likely any home with love to give would fit the bill.

"She is 3 years old, so she’s grown up now but still has a long life ahead of her. She prefers slow introductions to other pets, and she sometimes will ignore small children, but she would make an absolutely fun companion for someone looking for a new kitty to brighten up the home."
