Teena is a very pretty tiger/tortie (“torbie”). She is rather shy and preferred to stay in the background while her more outgoing roommate (now adopted) got all the attention. Now it is time for her to shine on her own. She is still not sure if she should trust humans, and prefers to observe rather than join in the fun. She allows a little patting now, but hisses when the allotted time is up. (She is on the left in the picture.)
Inside this defensive exterior there is a little kitty who just wants some love. She needs a quiet adult home with patient people who can complete the socialization process. She would need space for herself, some safe hidey-holes, and plenty of time to get used to new surroundings. Teena is used to being around other cats, and might benefit from a home with a few feline residents.
