Meow! My name is Paige
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
This is our beautiful Paige.
She needs to find a quiet place to live. She has been mildly abused; some physical, some emotional, and needs time to regain the trust of people. She is two years old and VERY cautious... and such a good girl.
She is ONLY available for adoption to someone who is in it for the LONG HAUL. She needs a FOREVER home where she will be given the time and patience she needs. Having been in foster care for almost two months, Paige is doing REALLY well and not hiding anymore. She runs to her foster mom to say hi, likes petting (for short periods) and likes catnip and Temptations treats. She uses her floor to ceiling scratching post and likes to sit on a heating pad to keep warm during the cooler weather.
She would do well with another cat (when they get used to one another) because sometimes another cat helps them get over their trauma and helps them see that life can be GOOD. She is fostered with three other cats right now and does well with them. They don't bother her too much but at dinner time she gets a little feisty so they know who's the boss. She wants her food and wants to make sure they know that her bowl is hers.
She likes Purina Pro Plan Chicken and Rice and Go brand Trout flavored dry food and Friskes canned food.
This is one of the most rewarding parts of rescue - to show an animal that not all people are bad and to have them grow to love you forever!
When you do bring her home, make a 'safe' room for her while she gets used to the smells and sounds of her new home. She'll adjust better this way! This will also give her a 'safe' place to go if she gets scared.
Please call FAT KATZ, 505-293-2830 or email FatKatzAbq@Gmail.com for more info or questions! You can also inquire about fostering cats because we always need fosters! The number fosters we have determines how many kitties we can help!
