Arwin is a very timid, shy girl, even though she has been in her foster home for a while now she still does at times hide when things get noisy or if she is frightened. She is unlike most cats in that wand toys seem to scare her and she will run and hide at any sudden movement of any kind.
Arwin has recently started to sleep on the bed with her foster mom and has let her foster mom know that she ‘loves’ to have her ears/face scratched. She will put her head on her foster moms open hand at night once the light is off and if she doesn’t start to give her scritches, Arwin will rub her head back and forth until her foster mom gets the hit. She has also just recently started to sleep near her foster mom’s feet for quite a while she would sleep at the far end of the bed. Because Arwin tends to be a bit on the scared side she has not always dealt well with the other cats in the home and has therefore been in her foster mom’s bedroom with very little activity (due to being scared of any toy other than what she can play with on her own) , because of this she has gained a fair amount of weight.
Her foster mom does not think she would do well in a house with children, but would do fine in a home that was quiet and would just let her be and not expect too much, though she just may surprise you. She is pretty quiet but will cry at her foster mom in the morning if she wants some attention as she is getting ready for work.
Will you be the one that will give this sweet girl a home where she can feel safe and loved? She just may surprise you and become a more affectionate girl.
