As you stare into the endless amber depths of her eyes, you may find yourself entranced.
There’s no denying it: Periwinkle is one beautiful kitten. There’s nothing remotely blue or Periwinkle-colored about Periwinkle. From head and tail, she is a striking orange tabby. Her coat is full and shiny and begs to be touched, but herein lies one teensy, weensy problem. Periwinkle, in all gorgeous glory, still isn’t so sure about humans.
When Periwinkle first came to us, she was one feisty little spitfire. She would follow our every movement with her eyes as she sat in her cage in quarantine, but as soon as you tried to pick her up, she spit and hissed. Periwinkle was found outside and probably had very limited contact with people before she came to us, so we hope that eventually her feral tendencies will mellow out.
Now that Periwinkle has moved to the Community Room and has a bit more freedom to roam and play, she has begun to shed some of that fearsomeness. While she still has a good bit of skepticism about people, she has begun to accept our advances. If you offer her some treats, she will come running and may even let you sneak some pets. She can be very silly once you earn her trust and will flop down on her side and push her head into your hand.
Periwinkle clearly loves playing and cuddling with her feline roommates. She also loves to play with the other youngsters and will chase around wand toys all day long!
Periwinkle is still a kitten, so we are very hopeful that with time and a good dose of love from our staff and volunteers, she will mellow out a bit. As it is, Periwinkle needs a special adopter who understands that she needs time learning to cohabitate with humans and may not behave like a typical cuddly kitten. If you are interested in adopting Periwinkle, please fill out an application online or in person and come to visit her during our public hours. Please see our Visit Us page for updated information.
