Meet Queen of Diamonds
Hi, I'm the Queen of Diamonds. I came a few days after Christmas with my three sisters, the Queens of Hearts, Clubs, and Spades. We were all painfully shy and afraid of people, but all of us have made great progress! Clubs and Hearts found homes already, so I hope Spades and I will be next. When I lived in a cage, I rarely came out of my box, but recently Spades and I were moved to the free-roaming cat condo. It didn't take long for us to shed our reclusiveness and start to be more social! I love hanging out on the Kuranda cat tower and watching the world go by outside the big window. I'm still a little shy with new people and prefer to be approached slowly and gently, but once I become familiar with you, I love to be petted. I even play with the wand toys occasionally. When you first take me home, it will help to keep me in a smaller room with all my belongings. That way I have familiar smells and a place of safety that will put me at ease. Spend some time with me and just be near me, you don't have to interact. Please let me come to you on my own schedule. Let me sniff your hand, and then tell me you love me. I might not understand words, but I understand your heart. Be patient, kind, and gentle. I'm a "diamond in the rough", but everyone sees my potential to be a most loving, affectionate kitty. If you are someone who has the knack of helping shy cats blossom, then please consider adopting me. The effort will be priceless, just like a diamond!
***It is not a requirement, but highly recommended that I be adopted with Queen of Spades, or go to a home where there is another gentle, accepting kitty who can be my friend and companion. I will be very lonely by myself!
