I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
CAMMY is a one year old tortoiseshell female cat. Cammy wandered into a backyard, and the kindly residents that lived there fed her and interacted with her with about three months. They could not take her in, they had two older cats and were concerned that Cammy’s presence would upset them, though they did try and the two older cats were unaccepting. They were moving out of the neighborhood, and concerned for her safety and well-being, they brought Cammy to us.
Cammy had borne kittens recently; there was no indication her little ones had survived, for they were not with her. She was worn down from trying to survive, and we could see her almost immediate relief at being inside, safe and warm and with adequate and nutritious food. She was very shy and withdrawn, and we suspect the hectic and noisy shelter life overwhelmed and frightened her. A kind volunteer took Cammy in to foster her, and Cammy is slowly but surely gaining confidence and social skills under the foster’s gentle and patient ministrations. Cammy greets her foster mom when she arrives home from work, and loves to be in the same room with her foster mom. She actually slept on her foster mom’s pillow! Cammy’s playful side is emerging: she loves to play peekaboo, and plays merrily with her toys. Cammy loves other cats, and she sure loves her catnip! Cammy may never be a lap cat, but we wouldn’t rule it out…given a quiet and patient household, there’s no telling what strides Cammy will take. She’s a beautiful girl, and who doesn’t like a robust game of peekaboo with a feline companion? If you’re looking for a torti developing her personality, come meet Cammy!
At PAAWS RI, all of the cats that come into our care are spayed/neutered, receive a rabies vaccination, distemper vaccinations, de-worming, flea treatment, microchipping, testing for Feline Leukemia/FIV, and a fecal test.
