It is difficult to think of saying goodbye to a cat like Zena. All Abyssinians crave a special relationship with their human companions, but Zena seems to invest even more of herself than others of her breed. We have learned that in her past life, Zena lived in a house where there was a lot of noise, a lot of arguing, and nobody to understand her or give her attention. One day the door was left open, and she escaped. fortunately, a good Samaritan and his wife took her in. they cared for her but could not keep her and ultimately surrendered her to a shelter.
Have you ever found yourself at the end of a relationship, feeling that you just didn’t have the energy to open your heart again, to explain again, to believe again? Well, when Zena arrived in rescue, she was bitter and angry and didn’t want to have anything to do with anyone. She was not ready to make herself vulnerable. She didn't even want to be touched. But her foster mom was patient, and over time—months—Zena was ready…to try.
If you have been lucky enough never to find yourself in Zena’s position, then maybe you won’t understand just how significant it is that now, when Zena’s foster mom gets into bed at night, Zena comes up and lies on her stomach, purring while her foster mom reads a book. Perhaps it won’t move you to know that when her foster mom asks, “Do you want a kiss?” she bows her head so her foster mom can kiss the top of it, and when her foster mom asks, “May I have a kiss?” and lowers her own forehead, Zena licks it.
This is a highly intelligent, sensitive cat. Whenever her foster mom wants to handle Zena, she tells her what she needs to do. “Zena, I want to pick you up,” or “Zena, I'm going brush your fur.” Zena is attentive. She seems to understand. And Zena loves drinking from the faucet also.
It is difficult to think of saying goodbye to a cat like Zena, but her foster mom has several other cats, and although Zena tolerates them, she would really be happiest with someone who was interested in a one-on-one relationship—or a two-on-one relationship between two people and a highly intelligent, serious, sensitive feline. Zena will come to her new home healthy, current on vaccinations, FELV/FIV negative, and micro-chipped. She is fostered in Pleasanton.
If you are ready for one extraordinary experience of bonding with an individual of another species, call Zena’s foster mom, Karen, at 707-301-6425 or by email at email@example.com
