Hi. My name is Violet and I’m writing this from my safe place, a small room at my foster family’s house, with my human, cat, and dog friends around me and my crate nearby. Though my breed is sometimes referred to as Siberian Forest Cat, the thought of being in a vast forest, alone, with strange noises does not sound like my idea of a good time!
I spent the first six years of my life as a breeding cat. Then I was adopted! But my people moved and had to choose: dog or cat. They picked “dog” and so off I went to a shelter, where someone adopted me again! But her house was huge and she was gone alI day—I was so scared, I couldn’t even find my litter box. So she surrendered me. And you know what? I always find my litter box here in my foster home. I am shy around new people, but warm up quickly. Give me a crinkled paper ball and toy mouse, cat trees with little spaces to climb into and platforms, and a nice scratching post and I’m cool. I love hiding in a box, but my crate is my go-to place. I have a few things I don’t like, though—loud noises, being left alone for long time, and large, open spaces. But give me a cozy room, a lap, and a person I trust to pet me and I become what my foster mom calls a “purr box.” I’m looking forward to spending many years with my forever people (and their friendly cats or small, cat-friendly dogs) who will share their lives with me in our quiet place.
