Charlotte’s life did not begin well. She was left at a shelter in her first year. Her next home didn’t seem to have time for her and she spent over a year in a little bathroom, separate from their other cats, neglected, alone, miserable. A bag of dry food was on the floor. When she arrived she was matted and remote, quite shut down. Her experience of humans had not taught her to trust them. Her loving Ragdoll nature was covered over and hidden.

In the ten months we have had her we have watched her inner struggle to want our attention but also to fear our attention. Finally she has turned the corner and her Ragdoll heart is on display. She is a darling little survivor who is now ready for a happy life in her new home.

You can see what a beauty she is. The contrast of her dark seal point head with her blue, blue eyes is so striking and satisfying. Her coat is fairly easy to care for. We are working to teach her that light brushing is pleasant and loving. She is not yet convinced and we are respectful of her opinions. It is clear she likes being on a lap- that was a big step in her opening to humans. It was her idea.

Lottie also likes verbal flattery. While photographing her I would praise her big heart and great beauty. She would meet my eyes and respond by rolling around, showing her tummy. Just in the last couple weeks she has changed so much. The video I am including is taken with someone she just recently met not an old friend.

Her new family needs to embrace the role of helping her come fully into her new life. It is hard to know how difficult this will be, how long it will take. I expect she will be shy and pull back at first but I have no way of really knowing. I am looking for a patient family who will be comfortable just loving her and helping her without worrying or pressing her to hurry. You can’t really push her, she’ll hiss or retreat or maybe raise a paw. She has opinions.

Lottie needs a quiet, peaceful home with experienced cat loving people. She is a great cat for empty nesters. No children please, and no other cats -she doesn’t like them. (I don’t know about dogs.) She loves windows and cat beds, and nooks to curl up in. Lottie eats wet and dry food and is perfect with her box. She is a healthy, beautiful, young kitty looking for a safe and tender home.

Some family will be so lucky to have her companionship. Lottie will be a grateful kitty and give her big Ragdoll heart to her special humans.

Charlotte is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, and microchipped.

She is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
