Navani was a stray found with an injured leg which ultimately had to be amputated.
Navani likely had a somewhat traumatic past. Her foster home is still working to build her confidence. Upon arrival she hid in the cat tree for weeks. First she would venture out with the promise of a treat, now she will come out for attention. She must be getting lonely as she has started breaking out of her private foster room to join everyone else in the main parts of the household. Navani loves pets and regularly makes excellent biscuits. When everyone is busy she enjoys spending some time lounging in the window. Navani LOVES temptations treats. She cannot resist the noise of the container being shaken and will always come running. These treats were key to getting Navani to step out of her comfort zone when she arrived at her foster home.
Navani is being fostered in a multiple cat household. She does not run from, nor avoid the resident cats, but she will occasionally hiss and swat if they get too close. It seems very much a fear based behavior and not aggression. She would likely do best with another cat(s) who is calm, kind, and won’t be upset if Navani asks for space. Her history with dogs is unknown, if she would be comfortable around a dog, it would likely be a dog who is small, low energy, and is agreeable to leaving her alone.
Navani is interested in toys, but generally likes to play by herself. Someone playing with her can be a bit overwhelming and scary. She also gets startled if her toys make too much noise, quiet, soft, stuffed mice are a favorite of hers. Navani has no trouble getting around on 3 legs and can move just as fast as any cat with 4 legs. She even managed to get herself onto the curtain rod.
Navani will do best in a calm, quiet home with a patient adopter who will be willing to let Navani set the pace of her integration into a new home.
Navani is part of our Chitown Shy-Cat program. This program is designed to help cats who might need more time to transition to a new environment. Each cat goes to their adopter for a 30 day Trial Adoption period so they have time to warm up and allow their personality to start to show before the adoption is finalized. Lulu’s Locker can provide all the supplies needed during that period.
