Rescue Story:

I was saved from being eaten by dogs out in the country, sadly I had no one come forward to claim me and I came to Zoe's to find a forever home.

Date of Birth: March 2023 (est)

Energy Level: Low

Size (adult): Medium

Adoption Fee: $170

Good with Dogs? Very specific dog(s) only
If cat friendly and not mean, I should be ok with proper introductions. No prey drive though.
Good with Cats? Yes
Especially cat friendly cats and proper introductions. No bullies though!
Good with Kids? Maybe
Very gentle calm kids I should be ok with.

Critter Twitter:

I am a very sweet girl who is shy but oh so cuddly. I may hide but I am easily coaxed out and I purr once you pick me up. Life out there wasn't easy so I am happy to find my forever home where I can chill on the couch, play with wand toys and purr beside you. In time I will probably gain more confidence to play and I may become quite the lap cat. I just need the right amazing hooman to steal my heart, like I will steal theirs. Everyone just falls in love with my big round eyes and sweet purrsonality. #shybutohsosweet

About my Behaviour:

I require a calm, quiet home that is understanding it will take me some time to settle in. A sanctuary room would be of high importance to me, even if you have no other pets.

Due to my shyness I request all animals in the home not to be bullies as I won't stand up for myself. I may trigger prey drive due to my skittish nature so please no dogs with prey drive. I was housed in a temp foster that had other cats and dogs/pups and I did just fine but the dogs/pups were always contained in the whelping area so it's hard to say.

I am currently pretty chill and low energy, but that might change as I build confidence through wand toy play time and a feliway plugin.

I am currently at bone and biscuit gateway and you can meet me any time during store hours. If you have any dogs please bring them so you can see how I am with them. I would not be ok with any dogs with prey drive, I was almost eaten by one!

How’s my Health?

I am fully vetted. I must be fed scheduled meals to help us form a strong bond (at least one wet food meal a day, and 3 meals a day, morning, after work and before bed). I will learn that you are the bringer of awesomeness and not the black hole of never ending kibble.
