What APA! says about Tanya:

Tanya is loving, interactive and talkative!

Tanya is a total sweetheart. Within 30 seconds of arriving at her foster home, she was out of the carrier, cuddling with her foster father and purring away. She loves being petted; in fact, she would probably let you pet her forever. Her foster has found that while she loves pets, she doesn't like belly rubs. (Perhaps she's self-conscious about her midsection.)

Why APA! says she deserves your love:

She loves being around her people, so she follows them around and makes little chirping noises when she wants their attention. She also enjoys exploring and quickly adapts to new surroundings. She is a lady in the litter box and is even careful when digging so as not to throw litter out of the box.
