THIS BEAUTY WAS BROUGHT INTO OUR VET'S TO 'BE DISPOSED OF' BY A VERY YOUNG COUPLE WHO SAID THEY WERE MOVING AND THE NEW LANDLORD WOULD NOT ALLOW A PET. WE DO HEAR THIS STORY ALL TOO OFTEN.
SHE HAD NOT BEEN SPAYED AND, AT AGE 8 MONTHS, THIS CERTAINLY COULD HAVE BECOME A PROBLEM. WE SOON NOTICED THAT THE COLLAR SHE HAD WAS BEGINNING TO BECOME EMBEDDED INTO HER NECK, AS FUR WAS MISSING. IT WAS OBVIOUS TO US THAT SHE WAS NOT WELL CARED FOR. DESPITE THIS SHE WAS STILL VERY GOOD-NATURED AND NOT SKITTISH OR SHY.
TATIANA IS DEFINITELY A PEOPLE-CAT! SHE IS SWEET AND AS DEMURE AS ANY LITTLE LADY CAN BE; BUT, SHE IS ALSO THE CLASS CLOWN AS SHE WILL PLAY HIDE AND SEEK WITH YOU AS YOU GO BY, EVEN WHEN YOU DON'T PAY ANY ATTENTION TO HER. SHE LOVES TO PLAY BY HERSELF WITH HER OWN INVENTIVE GAMES AND MIGHT WANT TO CUDDLE WITH YOU AS YOU SLEEP, BUT CAN ALSO SLEEP IN HER OWN ROOM AS SHE HAS DONE SINCE BEING AT OUR SAFE HAVEN.
SHE WILL NOT MIND ANOTHER CAT PROVIDING IT IS VERY NON-THREATENING, AS TATIANA IS NOT A FIGHTER, NOR WILL SHE 'TAKE OVER' ANOTHER CAT'S TERRITORY. A DOMINANT CAT WILL BE TOO STRESSFUL FOR HER. SO WE THINK SHE MIGHT DO WELL AS AN ONLY CAT OR WITH ONE OF OUR OTHER GENTLE CATS THAT WE ALREADY KNOW SHE DOESN'T MIND. WE SUGGEST, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A FRIEND FOR HER, TO LOOK AT LARA OR MINIE.
THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL GIRL WHO WILL GIVE YOU LOYALTY AND LOVE AND DESERVES A FOREVER HOME.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT OUR PERSONALITY PROFILES:
Our personality profiles are 95% accurate based on the cats' present environment; this can change to SOME degree in a new environment, therefore, our predictions on the best matched home are 80% to 100% accurate.
As we have very limited manpower, please also note we are sometimes overloaded and cannot update profiles immediately.
