Adopted By Tracey & Chris
Her family left her behind when they moved. Or did she somehow get out and was not found as they pulled away? She was out 3 or 4 weeks in a cold, very stormy February before a kind neighbor got her inside and to a cat person who got her to us. I said yes quickly. I love the lynx point Ragdolls with their deep blue eyes and expressive faces. She arrived thin and in need of a bath but her vet exam was already done. I knew that after a little time to grow her coat, put on weight and relax in being loved she would be beautiful . Which, of course, she is. She is a healthy, happy young girl who shows no desire to go outside.
What she loves is Food. She arrived ravenous and still is very eager to eat. This tells us that she was super hungry for a while. Offer her a Temptation Treat and she will do anything for you, even pose for a photograph.
Sammie absolutely loves attention from humans. She gets all excited and rolls around looking at you upside down. “Look how cute I am!” We haven’t had her that long, 2 months, and she has settled nicely into her foster home. She is needy for love and will be so happy to be showered with love in her new home. Sometimes when you stop petting her she reaches out to pull your hand back to pet her. A claw on her paw might hook your hand so you have to be careful. She also might give a little nip to your hand to grab your attention, ” a withdrawal nip” this is called. This can be trained out of her. ( a loud No or a hiss and walk away) It is simply that she gets excited, wants you to stay, and she doesn’t understand. She has gone through a very difficult few months.
Sammie came in really disliking other cats though that has faded some. She probably was competing with them for whatever food could be found. She needs to be the only cat in her new family for now. I don’t know how she is with dogs. She seems very young and is an active, playful kitty who loves to chase feathers. Sammie is not a good choice for a family with children under teenage years. Until she matures and mellows a bit she needs a family experienced with cats, able to understand them and read their body language. She will flourish in a home that has room for her to work off her energy and has people to play with her and love her. Her occasional behavior in which she gets over excited is a stage that will pass fairly quickly, I think.
Some family will be so lucky to have her entertaining, loving company.
Sammie is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
She is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.
If you believe you are the perfect adopter for Sammie please tell us why in the comments section of our Adoption Application, and contact Harriet at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are unable to reach Harriet please email us at email@example.com.
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!
