Meet Ilythia

This is Ilythia, she is a gorgeous 4year DMH Tuxedo, with a floofy tail.
While we don't know her history, Ilythia was rescued from the shelter where she was with her litter of kittens. Thankfully her litter had been rescued prior, but that left this mamma cat all alone and afraid. locked in a metal kennel. She cowered in her litter box watch through the bar with sadness and mistrust.

That is until my wife and I offered to foster her. Her first days in a foster were filled with anxiety and confusion... after a few days of decompression, it was time to try to earn her trust and make friends. It's pretty clear that Ilythia was not properly socialized with humans prior, she is still nervous and hand-shy, but she is finding out how much she enjoys a good petting. She perks up when she sees us and is coming over more for our affection/attention. She has even started "bunting" (aka head boops)

Ilythia needs an cat-experienced home with someone who is willing to be patient and continue working on her socialization. So far she is very tolerant of other with other cats. She is food treat motivated which is good with helping her sociability. She's not overly active, but she can't resist chasing a laser pointer. Sometimes she will engage with a stick toy, but she is often content and chill. Ilythia may never be that snuggly, lap-kitty, but with the right environment, she can bloom into being a good friend and likely a good TV buddy.

Ilythia is being fostered in Staten Island. Her adoption fee is $100
