With a knowing glance and a slight smile on her lips Bridgette comes off like a kitty full of mystery...but as soon as you reach out a hand she tells you exactly what she wants - pets and rubs - repeat, she wouldn't mind some brushing thrown in for good measure, too. Bridgette was found in a parking lot of a shopping center and was all too eager to put street life behind her. From the tip of her nose to the stub of her tail (we're not sure what happened to it - or if she was born that way) Bridgette is stunning - the perfect accessory to the cool fall days with her dappled fur she could blend into a carpet of leaves with ease. While Bridgette is young, she's only shown us the laid back side of her personailty - content to hang on a lap - but we're betting there's a bit of playful kitten in her as well. Come meet Bridgette!
