Jitterbug has not had an easy life to date. We estimate that she was born in August of 2010. It appears likely that she was abandoned when someone moved out of an apartment, though we can’t be absolutely certain about that. We do know she was living outside and being fed by someone in an apartment complex; we also know she had a litter of four kittens sometime very late in the spring of 2011. Jitterbug moved her kittens several times, no doubt in an attempt to get them into what she felt was a secure location. Only one kitten survived; he’s already been adopted from us.
Jitterbug is small, even though she’s an adult. She’s a pretty little torbie, with a mix of gray/brown tabby, orange, and white features, including a funny white stripe down the left side of her nose. To date, she has been rather timid with us, though she gets along well with other cats as long as they’re not too domineering. She is on the shy side with people, although in fairness her experiences with humans have been very mixed in nature! For the present, we’re stipulating that Jitterbug go to a home without small children, as we believe she’d do much better in a quiet environment.
We want to get Jitterbug a better life, where she’ll be loved, well cared for, and, preferably, an indoor cat. Can you help?
