|Breed:||Domestic Short Hair|
Violet is a stunning girl who has not had the best start to her short life. Prior to coming into our care Violet was feed and her basic needs looked after but what she didn’t receive was human love and affection. We placed Violet into foster care where she could learn about human love and what a warm and safe world it is to be indoors. She is now ready to find her own human and home, she will need more time, patience and understanding.
From her foster home –
Violet is a sweet little girl who is a bit shy at first but is delightful once she feels comfortable. She loves both wet and dry food and will normally finish a bowl in 1-2 sessions. We’ve been doing wet in the morning and dry at night.
During the first few weeks she hid a lot under furniture and in her cube bed, then progressed to hiding behind the couch. Often she’d come out if I sat nearby and accept pats from me before retreating again. She was more lively at night, playing with cables under our bed, running around the house and meowing loudly.
After a month Violet had settled in pretty well and didn’t hide too much. She discovered the heating vent in the lounge room and began occupying it and/or patches of sunlight. Sometimes she’d have a late afternoon nap on a bed or the couch. She never seemed to be a fan of high places like the cat tower and didn’t appear to care about catnip. She didn’t rip up any furniture and liked the cardboard scratch board we had on the floor near the couch.
Violet loves feather toys, especially feather wands or other dangly things on wands. She quite likes the laser too. She’s not so much a fan of toys without feathers/ribbons/etc.
Violet is not super cuddly, but did sometimes choose to sit on the couch beside me. She enjoys a good scratch behind the ears/on the neck and will tell you if you’re not doing it on the correct side. She likes scratches along her back and the slicker brush. She never offered her belly for a belly rub and never settled down on my lap, though in the last week I did get her to walk onto my lap and she’d stay there while receiving pats. I wouldn’t be surprised if she eventually did enjoy sitting on laps occasionally. She purrs quietly when you pat her and isn’t really vocal unless she wants you to open the bedroom door or feed her.
