Whisper my name to me, "Theodora." Approach me slowly. Read my body language. Don't stare me in the eyes; blink slowly. You don't need to be a cat whisperer to befriend me, but it helps to be patient, quiet, and gentle. I'll respond to you much better that way. Are you someone who can accept me as I am? Here's the thing: Cat experts will tell you that cats do not like being trapped or cornered, such as being put into carriers, or even picked up sometimes. When we're scared, we may act like we're mad. That's why a slow approach is the best way to get our relationship off on the right foot/paw. I am a pretty young tabby girl who was found in a farmhouse that was being demolished. First I went to another rescue. Since then, I've been in a couple different homes. I discovered that young children made me nervous. (I've been around kids up to age 7.) Many cats are that way, and we appreciate it if people respect that. It might take a while for us to feel comfortable with one another, but when I know and like you, I will come up to you and rub on your legs. I'll hang out near you. I will amuse you by chasing the ball around the turbo track, dashing around the room, or swatting at a wand toy. Some even describe me as "comical." I'll be a fun companion as long as you don't try to do something I don't like. It's very important to read my body language and pay attention to my signals. If you give me plenty of time to settle in, to build trust and feel comfortable, I can become a girl who feels at home with you. Will I ever be a cuddly lap cat? Maybe, maybe not. If you're willing to give me time to learn, to grow, to discover love, anything's pawsible. I just know that I'm Theodora, and I would love a forever home.
