Adopt Ashley a Gray or Blue Domestic Mediumhair / Domestic Shorthair / Mixed cat
St George, NB
***Meet Ashley an angel who has over come so much!!***Ashley came from an indoor hoarding situation, where there was not enough space, resources and human interaction. Ashely is one of the lucky ones: who was alive, was not severely sick and has been able to learn to form relationships with humans. She has been in foster care with the shelter for over a year now and has blossomed so much!! Ashley has learned about gentle, patient humans, forming trusting relationships and the joy of toys. For various reasons, she has been in a few different foster homes for no reasons that were any fault of hers (unsuitable for her timid nature, had to many other animals, had children etc.). Sadly, when she does seem to start to trust one human in a home, there seems to be a need to move her and it sets her back a little bit, making it take a bit longer for her to build the next relationship. She is now just over 3 yrs and really really NEEDS to find that perfect home for her so she can grow to her fullest potential, learn it is her safe place (permanently), and become all that she can be! This home is a place with 1-2 humans, calm, quiet, patient, with no children and no other pets. A home that accepts she is not an outgoing cuddly cat, but understands her tragic start in life and wants to give her a safe place with patient, non-pressuring human companionship. Her foster mom describes her as very, very cute with sweet little doe eyes, a gentle and somewhat anxious personality. Ashley has been known to follow the foster mom around the house, sit near her (at her feet or on the couch near her) and "talk" (chitter/meow) at her, as well, she enjoys short burst of brushing She really seems to desire a loving affectionate connection with a human being but because she is timid needs extra time for adjusting to and trusting new places and people. She loves to sleep in little cubby types of cat beds (these give her a sense of security) and on the couch. If you approach her when she feels safe, she accepts and enjoys gentle pets. When she feels insecure or something startles her, she will run and find a place to hide. She will allow you to pick her up although, she really does not prefer to be held.She loves the scratching post/pad, looking out of the window watching the birds and playing toys. Cat nip toys and wand toys are her favourite, although as you can see in the video she likes to play with the ball on the ball track toy if you make it go for her.Once adopted it will take time for her to become comfortable in the new environment. She is the cat that will be non-demanding, quiet and gentle, will live with you as a friend but may never become a cuddly cat, as well she might only form a trusting relationship with one person.If you are looking for a companion, one who is calm and gentle, likes a little conversation, wants a bit of play time, a bit of affection through brushing and gentle petting but also needs some space to be herself, Ashley is your Purrfect cat! Do you have the home for her, can you be her new trusting human giving her everything she deserves and accepting her love on her terms? A $100 adoption fee brings her home to you already spayed, microchipped, rabies and core vaccinated, flea and worm treated.
