Tammy is a beautiful shorthair calico with stunning green eyes. She's about 4 years old. Her elderly owner passed away, and Tammy has been very upset at the loss of her best human friend. She is a very affectionate cat when she is comfortable with you, but will hiss, growl and run away if she isn't. We've had her about a month. She is already much more affectionate with us, but is probably going to take awhile to accept a new owner. She may be comfortable with another elderly person in a quieter household. We are looking for an extremely kind person or couple with a positive attitude, in a home full of love and laughter. She might be okay in an assisted living type situation. She needs someone comfortable handling cats, as Tammy can be quite a handful when being put into a crate/carrier, and most especially when being taken to the vet. This CAN NOT be taken as an excuse to adopt her and not take her for her routine vet visits! She definitely lashes out at veterinarians, but she was named after her owner's favorite vet tech, how is more than capable of handling her. So no excuses!
If you think Tammy might be the cat for you, please let us know. However, it may take more than one meeting for her to be comfortable. Please do not ask about her if you have an active household or any young children--she just isn't going to be happy in either of those situations at this point.
She has all her vaccinations and is spayed. She has no known health problems and has routinely seen the vet. She eats both dry and wet cat food. She is a very clean cat, never missing the litter box and taking great care of her own shiny, colorful coat. She is very low maintenance. She has solicited petting with her meows and head rubs. So far, she gets along with a couple of kittens we have--but they mostly ignore each other and the kittens do not harass her in any way. She's not a fan of big dogs, although she would probably be ok with a small dog that left her alone.
Tammy really needs her own special angel. If it might be you, please give us a call!
