Tootie is a cute and pretty little young 1 year old DSH tortoiseshell spayed female. She is extremely shy, but warms up once she trusts you (which takes a little while - she will need some help with socialization and will need some time and patience). Once she trusts you, she enjoys pets on her terms and is very sweet. We rescued her from a trailer park where she was starving and kids were throwing rocks at her so we don't have any background on her, but it is apparent she needs to regain her trust of humans. She is loves to play and is learning how to play with toys. She came to us with her daughters (all of whom have been adopted), one older male kitten (Tarrful) and another female, Enya (who may or may not be her kitten as well). Both of these older kittens are also extremely shy and fearful and will need help with socialization. It would be great if she could be adopted with one or both of them, but not required. There is a discount for adopting more than one ;>) She will need lots of time and patience to adjust to a new home. She should not be around young or loud children, but might be O.K. with older, calm, cat friendly children who can be gentle and patient with her and give her the space she needs to adjust. We don't know about dogs, but she is young enough that she might be O.K. with cat-friendly dogs with proper introduction techniques. Come meet this adorable young lady to see if you have the calm, patient, safe home she needs to learn to trust humans.
