I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
Calypso. 7 yo +/- Tortie Persian.
Calypso is Cat #5 from the 25 Persians in Crisis page. She was initially
listed as being extremely shy and untouchable. While that was the case
when we first met her, that certainly isn't true now! She has blossomed
since coming to Rescue and just loves the attention and any affection or
playtime she can get. It only took her a few days to start greeting her
foster mom at the door. She still prefers not to be picked up. She spent
most of her life caged on a flat surface and has little experience being
held off the ground. Believe us, though: Calypso is sweet sweet sweet,
and she'll be a great friend to you even if you can't just pick her up
Calypso has a gorgeous flat face and considering her background is
probably breeder or show quality. She has big round copper eyes that are
healthy and clear, a tiny button nose and the cutest expression you can
imagine on her face. She's what her foster mom calls "an itty bitty".
Yes, Kimber likes those tiny little Persians. Right now, Calypso is
shaved and looking a bit scraggly. We'll send pictures along of her as
her coat grows in. Unless of course, you adopt her first. Then you can
be the one sending the updates to us!
Calypso gets along with other cats. Her current roommates are cat #17
and Cat #4: Box Boy and Pirate. We think she will be fine as an only
cat, but would also do well with a nice gentle companion cat. We don't
believe she's ever been around dogs, and we don't recommend she go to a
home with small children. That might be too overwhelming for her and
children like to have a cat they can pick up, so it just wouldn't be a
Physically Calypso had just a few minor challenges to overcome when she
got to Rescue. Due to her life in a cage with no vertical space, she had
a "hitch in her get along". She didn't walk well, and she was unable to
climb. Kimber has an obstacle course set up and Calypso and her two
companions are getting used to stretching their legs and using a 2-3'
cat scratching tree. They also have learned to climb from that onto a
low counter top. Calypso loves her new life, but she will be amazed when
she takes the next step. She'll soon get to go out of her private suite
and into a real home of her own. We'd love it if she could make just one
last move: straight into your home and your heart.
