My name is Astrid. I am about a year old. I was returned because I'm not a lap cat, but I love being in a home. I'm friendly and I want your attention but I also want to lay by myself sometimes. I love other cats and will play all day with them. It takes some time for me to warm up to you but I am never mean. I'm very nervous being in a cage because I lived in a nice comfy home for the majority of my life! I'm not used to it and it really scares me.
Here's what my new foster mom says about me: Astrid is very very active, loves to run and jump around. I'm using some of the toys I had from fostering kittens with her & she is happy. I got a big thing of Temptations roll & play treats & that's one of her favorite games right now. She doesn't hide at all really. Her current "hiding spots" are ones that are covered, but still plain to see and open. I call them her safety zones. She can see you, view you, but is comfortable there. She goes to those places sometimes when she's a little scared but wants to be pet. She hasn't been in any of the actual hiding spots that she used when she first arrived. She's a wonderful cat who just needs someone who will be a bit patient with her. It took me just a little over a week to get her to stay out of her hiding spots & actually ask to be pet.
