Anastasia absolutely loves to be petted and is very affectionate. Same with being brushed - once she is touched with the brush, she will flop all over trying to get every spot of her brushed! She will also play as long as you're willing to wave a wand or laser pointer. She loves to bat around crinkle balls. She can be vocal, meowing with her very cute tiny meow to let you know she wants more pets or more playtime! She is a beautiful speckled princess who had a bad start in life and is now learning to trust - she has come a long way from hiding in the bathroom to greeting visitors after they've settled in.
Ana is easily startled by quick movements and loud noises. She would do best in a home with other friendly animals, as she enjoys their company and also learns from their example - she loves lounging on the couch with her dog friend. Because she nips when excited, she would not do well in a home with children.
Ana came from a hoarding situation, and so did not have proper socialization and stability in her early years. Her initial fearful nature comes from this. It is recommended to start her in a very small space like a bathroom, and then into a bigger space like a bedroom and so on. A bit of patience during this time is needed, but well worth it. Here is a video to show just how sweet Ana can be: https://vimeo.com/193789239
Once she blossoms you will find yourself with the cuddliest, sweetest friend! Her foster mom is very proud of each step Ana has taken towards confidence. Come meet this beautiful girl today and prepare to be dazzled!
