Fava Bean is one of the most affectionate girls in Meow Manor and will come forward to greet visitors. Once petting starts, she will melt and ask for more attention. She came in as a kitten with four siblings, and they were all named as a type of "Bean." She has grown up to be a gracious and beautiful 2 year old young lady. Fava Bean loves hanging out in boxes, especially when they are girly pink or lined with pink edged blankets. She knows how to make herself comfortable. Her play style is attack and capture anything that moves. She will chase the laser dot, flying feathers, and anything marinated in catnip! She gets along well with her roommates, so she will do well in a multi-cat household or will be content as an only companion. Since all the other little Bean kittens have been adopted, there is a rumor that Fava Bean is waiting for her forever family to come in and adopt her, and give her a new name for a new life. 

Fava Bean has four siblings who were all named after type of bean.

Her adoption fee is only $49 from July 29th through August 14th, as part of a San Gabriel Valley Humane Society adoptathon that her feline friends are also participating in. This cost includes neuter/spay surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Fava Bean.
