Well hello! My name is Syrah and as you can see, I’ve had a pretty tough life. I spent part of my life living on a farm, which is where I was before I came to live with my foster family at TKN. I was with my new foster family for just a few weeks before I had a litter of kittens. They have all found homes, but I guess nobody had room for a full grown kitty. I’m still hopeful that the right family will come along and give me the love and attention that I need.
I am a very playful and affectionate girl. Playing with catnip filled toys is my favorite. I also like to scratch my scratching post. I am a very affectionate girl who is gentle and sweet. I do very well with calm children. I have met many other cats in my foster home and have done well with them all. I also live with dogs now and get along with them very well.
My appetite is very healthy, so I will need a family that can monitor my meals. I like to beg for food, just in case someone is willing to give me an extra snack. My foster mom says that I need to stay on my diet so I don’t get chubby again. I don’t really share my food well, so I would need to be fed separately if there was another kitty in my new home.
When I came to TKN, I was missing a lot of hair and had sores on my skin. After some great work by our veterinary team at Riverside Cat Hospital, I was diagnosed with allergies. Now I take allergy shots once a week and I am feeling, and looking, much better! I also have a crumpled ear from an old injury. It doesn’t hurt, but it does give me a lot of character. I am spayed, up to date on vaccines, negative for FIV and Felv, microchipped, and recently had a dental.
