Lizzie is the cutest little orange tabby female. She raised her babies on the streets Lizzie was trapped and brought in. After years of fear Lizzie grew leaps and bounds seeking out pets from strangers and becoming one of the Centre “greeters”. Unfortunately for Lizzie the other cats love to chase and swat at her, things can get quite heated and while she doesn’t seem to instigate she is so frequently the target we are looking for Lizzie to be in a forever home where the other resident pets ignore her or where she can be on her own spoiled until the end of her days.
From her time on the streets Lizzie does have a strong fear response, so when you first try and pet her you will see a big fear response (eye grow wide, cowering) but if you are patient and leave your hand out she will often turn her head for a little bump and you can then pet her. She will swat if she then feels unsafe (most often a soft bop with no claws) and then either re-evaluate and ask for more pets or run away to a safer vantage point to reassess the situation. She was quite loving at the Centre and we think if given time to settle in and determine that you do not intend to eat her she would become a great companion for someone who is ok living with an independent lady. Lizzie loves pets once she knows you but has not enjoyed being picked up at all in her time with us (though many cats don’t like being handled that way!). Please help us find Lizzie the perfect home for her, as an only cat with someone with a patient heart who doesn’t mind a spicy girl who you will definitely grow to love in all her quirks!
Estimated date of birth of Lizzie is January 8, 2011.
