This beautiful tabico kitten showed up on my back deck last winter, half starved, half bald, sickly, with her whiskers cut and reeking like an old ashtray! I called every rescue I could to no avail. So I eventually quarantined her & doctored her till she could come out around my three seniors, whom she promptly tried to kill! No matter what I do, she will go after them every time I turn my back for a second. But when they're hiding in the bedroom, she's delightful! She brings her toys to me to play. She just sleeps, she never scratches the furniture, and oh, she knows when she's in trouble and I tell her to go to her room! But my babies are 14 yrs old and have spent from the moment they were born with only me - it's not fair they should hide in the bedroom from this mean girl. At the same time, I've invested a year of sweat and tears (and money) into healing this Little Girl - I'm not just sending her to some random home. She is going to need some vet attention. She's got separation anxiety so she needs someone who's home and needs her as much as she needs them. I don't know how she is around kids, but I'm assuming it was kids who cut her whiskers off last year, so I wouldn't suggest it. For the right new home, she comes with her own cat tree, toys, blanket, litter box, even some food & treats. I just want to know she's going to be safe and loved and happy like she is now. She's just not the boss here like she thinks! Adoption fee is to discourage those who don't read and/or meet her particular needs first and foremost, but also to help offset my costs as I am on a small monthly stipend.
