month after Opus's passing, I was at the petstore and came home with this
She had been there for 3 months while all the other cuter, bigger, fluffier, whatever...kitties were getting adopted.
came with the name "Alley Anna Corina" -- yeeeek) is a 4 year
old DSH "dilute" calico. She's spayed, microchipped and has
all her shots. Apparently she came in to the shelter very skinny and has
been spoiled and fattened over the past few months. The Purrfect Pals
volunteer, Sprinna, said, "she doesn't know how to sell herself".
She also said that Allie was very timid and didn't warm up to people.
So there she sat for 3 months. When I came up to her cage she stepped
right up to me and started rubbing her cheeks on my hand. She allowed
some face rubbing and petting, which really suprised the volunteer. Sprinna
said that Allie never bonded with anyone like that.
Looks like Allie and I will both be good therapy for each other.
Here's the description from her Purrfect Pals page.
"Description: This petite beauty was surrendered because her owner no longer was able to have her in her home. She doesn't mind other cats and has been around children and would love to stay indoors. She can be a bit shy until she gets to know you but is very affectionate and cuddly. She might do best in a quiet home. She doesn't like to be picked up. She loves cat nip. Like all Purrfect Pals cats she is spayed, viral tested, microchipped and started on all vaccines except rabies. Additional information: *Housetrained *Current on shots "
morning, her first morning at the house:
I could barely get her to sit still because she kept going back and forth rubbing against my legs
What an expression
Better. But blurry.
Licking the tosies. See my new fish tank in the background? :) I sit on that chair and watch the fish.
She wasn't mad, so this had to have just been a frozen expression caught while she was adjusting herself.
Happy kitty in her new home.
Why is this lady taking pictures of me!
Her hair is quite short but extremely silky soft. Her belly is thick and tight (which is a drastic contrast from Opus's emaciated stomach).
She has one white foot with a black spot - the rest are tan.
