Natasha is a pretty tortoiseshell, about 12 years old in our estimation (as of 10/13). When she came to us, she had a dental infection that had been seriously neglected. She was in so much pain she could hardly eat, so she was quite skinny. Our veterinarian had to extract all of her teeth other than her canines, but that’s made a big difference to this little girl! She’s entirely healed now and has put on some much-needed weight.
Natasha’s past experience with humans has obviously not been optimal; as a result, it took her many months to learn to trust us. Now, however, she has adjusted to life here and is mostly very affectionate. Natasha would do best with a patient adopter with time and willingness to let Natasha adjust to their home at her own pace. Could you be that person and help our tortoiseshell beauty blossom into the affectionate companion we know she can become?
