Adopt Me: Zinnia the calico kitten

She came in as a feral kitten, but she is slowly coming out of her shell

TimminsToday, in partnership with the Timmins and District Humane Society and the Northern Ontario Animal Welfare Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.

Hi, I'm Zinnia! I hear all the time that I'm a beautiful little kitten. I'm only six months old, and have a lot of purring and adventuring to do! 
I came into TDHS in August 2019 as an eight-week-old feral baby kitten, trapped outside. TDHS gave me food, shelter, and a chance to get close to friendly people.
It's been a slow process, but I have been coming out of my shell; being in a foster home has been extra helpful to me so that I can do a lot of socializing. Once I trust you, I purr and play, and will even come close for snuggles on the couch and in bed at night. I'll do all of this on my own terms, I'm a calico after all!
I will really love a quiet home where I can feel most safe and comfortable. I have a healthy appetite, some would call me a little roly poly. I'm a clean girl, very sweet, and have a special look about me.
I get along fantastically well with dogs, cats, and kids. I would benefit from other cats in the home as they would help me on my journey of making friends and learning to trust. In a nutshell, I'm looking for someone who gets me. Might that be you?
If you're interested in adopting Zinnia, please call the Timmins & District Humane Society today to set up a meet and greet.
