Or my silky gray coat.       When you are not more about Myra
I’m Twizzler named after the black licorice candy and just as sweet. I came to PAWS with a bad wound on my paw. Antibiotics helped a lot but I still lost one toe. That doesn't slow me down. I still jump and climb with no issue Just like black licorice is an acquired taste, I take my sweet time to decide if I feel safe with you so I need a kind caring patient adopter.  I am shy with new people but I like other non-aggressive  kitties. I even sleep with my foster and she more about Twizzler
