Bunni is a beautiful dilute calico born exactly on March 22, 2016. She was adopted in mid-June and returned October 1 for ‘biting.’ They related how she wanted to sleep to close to the head of the bed - so they locked her out of the bedroom. She meowed and scratched at the door to be let in so she could be near her humans – so they put her in the garage at night. Obviously, she needs a home where her adopter will allow her to sleep on the bed at night (she wants to sleep at your waist, not your head or feet) and not banish her to the garage which would just reinforce her separation anxiety and aggravate her neediness because: Back in foster care, she sure IS a kitty who wants to be near you as much as possible. She is a lap cat. At the computer, she wants to step down into your lap and curl up. Doesn’t want to be petted much – appears to be ‘side sensitive.’ A new one as I’ve fostered ‘back sensitive’ kitties, but never had a ‘side sensitive’ one before.
She now only nips (she never, ever broke the skin when she bit me twice early on [when she was back in foster care] just hard enough to get my attention) very carefully as she knows she will get disciplined for it: “No!” and air blown in her face or gagged with my hand or finger if I’m fast enough.)
We respectfully request that she go to a home with no children (we don’t want to risk a child growing up to fear cats instead of love them!) as she just does not have the patience for children. We are hoping to find that special someone who says, “My old cat used to do that!” It’s happened before for a few of our foster kitties so we know the perfect match for Bunni is out there. She has a wonderful purr and is fine with small dogs. However, she has made it clear she is a total princess: she must be the only kitty in the house as she is darn right mean to other kitties – will chase an 18-pound kitty out of the room.
Adoption events are held at the Fair Oaks Petco (Madison at Hazel) on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4pm.
