Meet Catarina

Catarina was rescued after spending six years outside. She was the resident cat in a neighborhood and had a feeder that she got very close to. Her feeder, who is not a cat person, deemed her "feral," which was clearly not the case, because she was able to pet her, pick her up and play with her. Catarina's feeder was moving out of state and worried the neighbors would not take on the role as caretaker, so she reached out to us because she loved this "Cat," as she named her, dearly. We were heartbroken when we met this gentle and very scared girl, because it was clear she was not feral and we wished she could have been saved from a life outdoors sooner.
While Catarina was very much at ease with her feeder, she was not that way with new faces. It's taken us a while to earn her trust, and she will have to start that process all over again in a new home, so she will need someone patient, understanding and very familiar with cat behavior.
Catarina will do best in a quiet home with experienced cat owners who understand that she may never be the lap cat that so many prefer, that she will not be the type of cat to follow you around the house and look to cuddle on the couch with you... at least not at first. That being said, she is very playful, she thoroughly enjoys being pet, she purrs, she lets you hold her (all the while looking for an exit route of and she truly does not have a mean or aggressive bone in her body.
While she may not ever be the sought after "lap cat," she needs lots of love and care, nonetheless, and we hope her "person" is out there somewhere, possibly reading this!
