Luna was adopted from our rescue back in early 2013. She was surrendered back to us i May of 2016 because the family stated she had anxiety with their 3 year old child, and was running away from the child. Not uncommon for kitties to run away from young children, especially if young children are all hands and are not corrected by the parents. She was shy when she was adopted, and the family was aware of that. Shy cats usually don't like being chased by little ones. Luna was fabulous with their 8 year, who was likely more respectful of Luna. We thought they understood that Luna didn't like being held and would run, but after 3 years I guess they decided they didn't want a cat who there children couldn't hold. So poor Luna lost her home for just being herself. Luna is a doll and will be a wonderful kitty with the right family.
Luna has been doing fabulous in her foster home. She walks around the house exploring, and saying hi to the other kitties who she is great with. She loves being in high places. Her cat towers are surely her favorites. She is fabulous with the large senior dogs in the home, but woudn't do well with a loud, crazy, hyper dog. Luna likes things quiet. She startles with fast movements and loud sounds.
We feel Luna would be happiest in a home without small children. Teen children and would be great. The foster mom did slow intros with her with the resident cats when Luna first arrived, and Luna acclimated very well with the other kitties. With any adult, as long as the new family does slow intros with resident cats, all should go fine.
Because it may take you more time then a 1 hour visit to really see Luna's beautiful personality, we would be happy to do a two week trial for a potential adopter with Luna so that you can see for yourself how sweet she is. If you believe you will have children in the future, she isn't the right match as we would hate to have her returned years down the road, again, when children arrive and she doesn't do well with them. Luna absolutely isn't aggressive with young children, she just runs away from them.
