Facts about Miz Walnut

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Spotted Tabby/Leopard Spotted
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Mizz Walnut has just the perfect ocelot fur coat. Found or rather trapped as a mom with kittens, she got to spend some time in one of our very dedicated foster homes. During that whole time, she took great care of her kittens, however was always completely scared of people. She then tested positive for FIV and has now taken up residence in our FIV room. While she is fine with the other cats around there, she still prefers to be admired from afar. She doesn’t automatically run away and often watches you, just relaxing on a kitty bed but if you try to get too close for her comfort, she hisses and her ears go down. She is settling down and at least for now can start relaxing – no more worries about where the next meal is going to come from or where to hide from the element. Over and over, we find out that cats that were very skittish always surprise you with signs of affection when you least expect them and that these are the most rewarding. Many adopters also mentioned that adopting a shy cat when you already have a couple of lap cats is one of the best decisions they made: saving a less adoptable cat while maintaining their relationship with their current cats. We know this is not for most people but for those that decide to take that step, they just discover a whole new dimension to their relationship with their feline family.
