Born ~2016, F, Seal Point Siamese
Zoey’s mom moved to France and could not take Zoey with her. When she left her in the Marin shelter she mentioned that she worried that Zoe would be scared. She was scared. It took Zoey quite a while before she got over the loss of her mom and her life felt safe to her. She is a tender little, vulnerable girl.
Zoey is very crosseyed as you can see. Crossed eyed cats have their following of folks who think they look super cute.They can look angry or cranky even though they are not. The Siamese breed has more than its fair share of cross eyed kitties and Siamese lovers love them. Zoey is a Seal Point Siamese which means she has a dark brown face, feet and tail. This dark brown sets off her super blue eyes perfectly. Her soft body is a cream that can look darker in certain lights. I included one of her adorable baby pictures at the bottom of her photo’s.
We have had Zoey since July 2019. She has needed time to be ready to go home. As the weeks passed we watched Zoey relax bit by bit. We would find her out on a shelf rather than under a bench. We saw her watching birds outside her window. She began to let us know what kind of attention she liked. One day we found she really liked her tummy rubbed. Now she will lie on a friend’s lap and let her tummy be rubbed and rubbed. She actually is a very affectionate cuddly girl to someone she knows. Her problem was that when the unimaginable happened and she was left alone in a shelter she already was not a very confident girl. Her mom had said that she would hide when other people visited her home. In a shelter a frightened cat is never put out on the adoption floor. If rescue hadn’t taken Zoey she likely would have been euthanized.
Rescues is able to offer kitties the time to recover or adapt which a busy shelter cannot.We can have the pleasure to watch her unfold herself, letting us see what a wonderful kitty he or she really is. Zoey is a Siamese which means she is a super sensitive, tender kitty, who will be very connected with her human. She has lots of special humans now and is friendly to strangers who come up to pet her. She is ready for her new home. Zoey will probably need time to adjust to her new home but her settling in will likely be way faster than last time. She has grown.
Zoey will make someone a wonderful companion. She needs a loving, gentle person with a quiet, not chaotic, home, someone who wants to treasure her and let her feel safe. I would not choose a home with young children for her and I don’t know how she is with dogs. Let’s make her transition to a loving home easy for her.
Zoey eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
Her foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
