Martha                   SANDY GEDDRY

You won’t find this Martha standing at the stove cooking. And, you won’t be reading any how-to books she has written. What you will find when you visit Martha is a cat that know what she likes.

One year old Martha is a cat that likes to be touched. She will run her head under your hand to tell you she wants to be loved. She absorbs all the attention she can get. When she’s had enough she will let you know it’s time to stop by batting your hand away.
Martha loves and plays with an intensity that could be too much for a young child that does not understand her boundaries. She also does not like to be picked up which is not unusual for many cats.
Martha will be a great companion to the person that can appreciate a cat that is in charge. She will not be cooking Sunday dinner for you, but she will be cooking up lots of fun.
