About Carla

Adoption Fee: $25
Bengal / Domestic Cat
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Carla is a 3 year old Bengal who was rescued from a field near Leduc, AB as a kitten. I have three cats in total. Carla is a playful, food loving kitty who loves sleeping on my hand at night, playing with her purple mouse, and she will come running whenever human food is around! She's got a beautiful coat, with an orange heart shaped spot on her head. She's one of the most beautiful cats I've ever seen. She can be very loving and adorable; however, she has some behavioural issues. Carla developed behaviour issues towards my boyfriend and my two other cats over a year ago. I believe it had to do with her not being fixed at the time. She became very dominant and aggressive towards my other cats and my boyfriend, chasing and attacking them and asserting herself as the top cat. We got her fixed in April 2018 in hopes that her demeanour would change, with no luck. She instead became even more aggressive and dominant. I have tried my best to work with her, spending many hours utilizing cat calming techniques, products, music, and trying to show her that she is loved, because she is loved very much. It has come to the point where she's chasing my other two cats constantly, attacking and being aggressive no matter what. I know that our home is not the right structure for her anymore. I wish I could make it work, but I have no other options at this point. Carla needs to be in a single cat home, with preferably a female owner. She needs to be in an environment where she doesn't feel like she needs to dominate for her place in a home. While she is displaying aggression and behavioural issues right now, I believe that it may change in a single cat home. I feel that with no other cats around her, she would feel more relaxed and confident, not jealous, and assert herself as queen kitty. Rehoming Carla is urgent right now as my other cats are getting thinner and stressed. I don't want any of my cats to develop health problems from stress. My biggest concern is the health and well-being of all of my cats. My other two cats are showing signs of anxiety, and I believe that Carla's aggression is a form of anxiety as well. I cannot give up Carla without knowing that she is going to be loved and protected no matter what. She deserves a chance at a happy cat life, that's why I emphasize that I don't know if her behaviour will get better, I believe it will but I have no guarantee. If you are interested in Carla, I ask that you be prepared for her behaviour, and be willing to work with her even if she's aggressive. I don't want her being abandoned or unloved, I love her so much and it's very hard for me to give her up. I have to do it for the benefit of all cats involved. I believe that the right person will have a very open and loving heart, patience, and determination to give her a happy kitty life that she deserves. Please feel free to contact me if you believe you are that person.
