Not good with dogs,
Good with cats,
Spayed or Neutered,
Summer was trapped with her 4 siblings in November of 2021 at just 6 weeks old, her momma had been living in our directors back yard and we had assumed they were all fixed until Summer and her siblings popped out, after that all adults were quickly trapped, fixed, and returned to their outdoor homes where we continue to care for them, and the 4 kittens were taken into our rescue. Since then 1 sibling has sadly passed away, and the other two were happily adopted. Summer had an unfortunate trial adoption at a few months old that went badly, and led to trauma and a fear of humans and carriers (to no fault of the trial adopter, Summer just wasn't ready yet, and that is our fault for trying to push her through adoption before she was ready to go.)
Summer is very shy, she does not warm up to people quickly, and for the majority of the time, does not want to be touched. She does like other cats, but can be a bit hissy at first, given a proper introduction she should be just fine. She loves to play, and spends most of her time sleeping in our windows and enjoying the sun. The perfect adopter for Summer would be someone that understands she needs her space. She has taken to sleeping on our desk behind the laptops, and will usually let me pet her there, but trying to approach her normally startles her and she will run away. One of Summers best friends here is Mosaic, another shy/ semi-feral girl. ideally, we would like the girls to go to a home together, to someone who is patient and understanding of their need for space, because of this, we have listed them as a bonded pair. Most likely, a meet and greet wont be easy to accomplish for the girls, as they tend to run and hide any time we have company. However if someone is extremely interested in these sweet, complex girls, i will figure out a way to make it so you can see them.
These two are not your normal lovey cats, while both do enjoy being pet, they do not enjoy being approached, and may never be snuggly, however they are just as worthy of a loving forever home as any of our other more sociably cats and kittens. Summer does not like dogs, and will not be able to go to a home with dogs.
Description and Medical Info:
Summer is a small but chubby tortoiseshell tabby with white paws and green eyes. She was spayed and vaccinated at HOPE Spay and Neuter Clinic on 3/4/22, her shots were last updated on 10/20/23, and she was given a 90 day Bravecto flea, tick, and worm. she will be given another as soon as we are able to procure one from our vet, and we recommend any future adopters keep her on Bravecto 90 day as it is less stress for her. She does occasionally have vomiting spells, we have been unable to discern what cause these, however our treatment is to give her some wet food mixed with pumpkin puree if she cant keep food or water down, and that seems to fix it. We assume she just has a sensitive stomach. Her estimated birthday is 9/23/21
