FEB 28, 2013:
Fanny is getting discouraged. You can see that in her pictures. She would love to be adopted and taken away from all the hustle and bustle at the Shelter. She yearns for a quiet life and an owner that likes to read a book with a loving cat on her lap. Fanny came to us with her kittens in Sept. 2011. We estimated her to be about one-year-old then. She came from a large community of cats living outdoors with no more care than a scattering of food. Fanny’s kittens were adopted long ago, and Fanny would welcome that opportunity also, but not having grown up in a home environment, she just doesn’t know how to get your attention or show you what a sweetheart she really is. This rare lady—only 20-25% of all orange tabbies are females—would love to be the apple (or should we say pumpkin) of your eye. Please go that extra mile to get her to know you. You’ll both be very happy you did.
