Sissy is a beauty who was adopted as a kitten from Kitty City. She was relinquished due to her owner’s illness. She was very bonded with her owner and had not been around anyone else for three years. Sissy has now bonded with her foster mama and is very interested in other animals. She wants to play with them, but can also play by herself with the feather toy, pipe cleaners, the scratching post, and whatever else is around. She is shy, needless to say, but once she trusts you she loves to flop on the floor and have you scratch her around her neck and head. She will need someone to be patient with her while she continues to learn to be around new people and situations. Sissy may be part Abyssinian. Her tabby coat has the ticking that is characteristic of Abyssinians, and she appears to become very attached to “her person.” Sissy fits the classic Abyssinian personality of being intelligent, cheeky, playful, and inquisitive. (“Cheeky” meaning “impudent or irreverent, typically in an endearing or amusing way”, and “impudent” meaning “not showing due respect for another person; impertinent.”) Foster mama loves her for this! Sissy needs to find someone who also loves her for this and won’t get mad when she gets mad. She can be sweet but you have to watch her for cues that she’s “done” and then leave her alone. For these reasons, Sissy would probably do best with a veteran cat owner and no small children.
