Winter’s coming! When we first met our beautiful girl Snowflake back in July, she was so scared of people that she would stay huddled in the very back of her box, barely visible. With lots of love from a veteran foster caregiver, Snowflake has started to realize that people can actually be pretty okay—and she’s now ready for a home with someone who can help her keep getting better and better! Snowflake is a pro at finding small, cozy nooks to nap and lounge in. She definitely enjoys wand toys and sometimes even likes to stick one lone paw out from her comfy spot to bat at them! Once she starts to feel comfortable, Snowflake lets her playful side come out even more, bit by bit. In addition to the wand toys, in her foster home Snowflake has enjoyed batting around mice and occasionally chasing laser pointers, too! Snowflake doesn’t totally understand the whole “touchy feely” thing yet, but she’s taking baby steps to get there. She loves being around other cats, and when she sees her foster siblings getting pets from her foster caregiver, she sometimes gets enough of a confidence boost to get a few scratches, too. We also think Snowflake may just have a secret dream of being a political activist. According to her foster mom, Snowflake had no qualms about showing who she did and didn’t like during recent political conventions and would scratch at particular people on the TV! Snowflake certainly has purrsonality.
Snowflake is looking for an adopter who understands that it will take several weeks or more of confinement and a hands-off approach for her to settle into her new home and that she may always be a little shy, especially around guests—and that that’s just a part of who she is! We think that Snowflake would do best in a quiet home with teens and up, and a patient adopter who’s excited to help her keep making progress towards coming out of her shell. Because the other kitties in Snowflake’s foster home have helped her gain so much more confidence, Snowflake’s new home must already have another social, cat-friendly cat who can show her the ropes!
