Hi. My name is Violet and I'm writing this from my safe place, on top of a tall cat tree at my foster family's house, with my human, cat, and dog friends around me and my safe place- small room with my litter box- 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 very scared and was hiding most of the time. So she surrendered me. I am shy around new people, but warm up quickly. Give me a small space I can call my own, cat trees with little spaces to climb into and platforms, and a nice scratching post and I'm cool. In the beginning, when I am still adjusting, I prefer to hide in a box placed in a quiet small room- I feel safe that way. When I get used to my new house, I love hanging out in the living room with my family, especially I love getting up on a tall cat tree where I can nap and look out the window at birds and squirrels. 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 am very mellow and easy going and I am always happy to be around people and other domestic animals. I'm looking forward to spending many years with my forever people (and their friendly cats or medium size, cat-friendly dogs) who will share their lives with me in our quiet place.
