Classified Matchups: Feline friends looking for specific homes and special humans!
I am an athletic, timid, loving young cat in search of very compassionate, understanding humans! I grew up with my littermates and a very special human foster. We were living in the wild until right at the border of the age when kittens are still able to learn to be social with humans. Our human foster has given us the proper amount of time to decompress in a new environment and (as you can see from the photos) we have shown that we are motivated to learn to love humans.
Any time we change living spaces, we are going to need an adjustment period--that will likely be longer than the average cat might need--to feel comfortable moving freely around a home. We also prefer that new humans give us time and space to adjust. A quiet room with very little furniture and plenty of boxes, crates or carriers in which to hide is ideal. Our foster earned our trust by bringing food and staying closer and closer to our dishes each time we were fed. We also love the special treats our foster brings! As time went on, our foster was able to pet us with back scratchers while we ate. Eventually we learned that being pet by a human hand is the best!
Once humans earn our trust, we will brush up on their feet, sit next to or in their laps and want all the love and attention they are willing to share!
