Meet Betty

Hi there! If there’s one thing the volunteers at Desert Haven can count on in our Cool Cat Neighborhoood it's that I, Betty, probably won’t give you the time of day when you come to meet me. Does this perplex the volunteers? Yep. Why? Because I'm totally snuggly and loving and friendly with a few of them. I come when they call. I burrow into their lap for petting sessions. I play with toys and engage in fun ways with them.

So, what's my issue you say? Why do I hesitate to let visitors into my heart right away when they come to meet me? Well, if I had that answer I certainly would have solved it already and then I wouldn't be so standoffish. Some volunteers that know me best and that get to feel the joys of my love theorize that I'm highly loyal and I attach strongly to my person but I have a guard up on initial meetings to protect my heart. I love so deeply, so completely, so wonderfully, that I'm scared of being rejected so it's easier on my heart to just keep people at a distance.

But I WANT love. I want a family. I want my people or my person. And what I NEED is for someone to come to meet me and understand all this. Understand that I may not accept affection from you on that day, but boy howdy, when we become family and I am living and loving in your home, and I am all settled in -- you will be the love of my life that's for sure!

So, here I am, this adorably friendly and playful cat who is soft and sweet — but I am a great actress. I act like I don't want to be snuggled in your arms. And my act is quite convincing! But, don't be fooled by my theatrics. My person just has to take me home trusting that I will be the kitty of their dreams. And I will! I know this amount of trust is a tall order. My person is out there. I know it.

Who’s ready to come to meet Betty the kitty-cat who won Best Actress at the Pawscers this year? Love, Betty
