Faux Pas's Info...
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Faux Pas, which is French for “social mistake,” we think is probably a play on words for “Four Paws.” This plus-size gal was picked up stray by a Richmond Animal Care and Control officer, but no one came looking for her, even though she has obviously been a pampered house cat for a long time.
True, she’s overweight, but with some weight control food and regular playtime, she should trim down steadily over the course of a year. She’s extremely smart, tidy, quiet and adores looking out of the window, but she definitely has a shy side while she considers her situation and grows to accept the new routine of her surroundings. While at the shelter about 3 weeks, she gained confidence and came forward to greet visitors, and she loved to lounge about royally and watch people come and go. We think she’d do well with a “safe place” from the beginning, as simple as her carrier or as fancy as you’d like to get – we also like the cute Velcro dog houses for $10 at CVS – they come in the perfect pink for this sweet girl! We have one we’d be glad to give you, still in the box!
