Ok folks, CAT (yes, it’s CAT, all capital letters) was in and out of our respite care program a time or two. Now, she’s back, and CAT needs a sponsor. Due to special circumstances, she will not ever go on the adoption list. This pretty lady has a very sad story, but we made it happy again. You can tell by her friendly behavior that she has always been very much loved. There were many reasons she lost her homes, and her people, several times.
Unfortunately, home life for her has been unstable since the beginning. She and a kitty friend lost two homes through no fault of their own. Most recently because her owner could not take care of her any longer. It’s been a rough ride for a girl less than three years old when she arrived here for respite care. Now, she’s alone since her friend got adopted.
We soon found out why she kept getting out, getting lost, and being put out of the house. She’s a challenge 24×7. Nevertheless, this girl is not a street cat! She was in danger out there. A cat raised alone, without a colony or a mom, has no survival skills. On top of that, CAT developed separation anxiety so many changes and upsets in her young life. She’s a velcro cat to the max, and it appears she had some bad experiences with a woman at some point.
She’s active, mischievous, smart, quick-moving, and a large handsome kitty with a heart on her nose. Are you a cat parent who raised teenage cats and knows what we mean? CAT is a bit calmer at the age of 7, but she’s still more work than all the others combined.
She’s affectionate and loving, and she loves toys, as you can see in the video. On the other hand, she also makes big messes playing in the water dishes trying to wash food like a raccoon. She can be found anywhere from the highest point in the house to the lowest. Yes, that means some “accidents” too. This one is busier than a toddler and can find just as much to get into.
CAT seems to love everyone. She craves lots of interactive playtime with wand toys. Because she’s very demanding in daily care and has challenging behaviors, we decided to make her a long-term resident. The risk of permanent emotional damage and physical danger if she got put on the street or dumped in a shelter, due to the work involved in keeping up with her, seemed too high. CAT has blossomed and settled down a lot being in a stable environment.
This pretty girl is just waiting for a sponsor. More than one sponsor would be great too! She’d love to have a local sponsor who might visit occasionally or send a kitty toy.
This girl loves to play in water too! The first one to fish for the automated fish in a pan of water.
