Meet Tapestry

Tapestry has the playful energy of a much younger cat – she loves to play with wand toys, race around, and if you try to tell her something is too high for her to jump up on – well, she’ll prove you wrong ? She can jump and climb like a little goat! One of Tapestry’s favourite things is to RUN! She loves to play ‘tag’ but with her rules, so you’re always “it” and you’re the one chasing her, trying to catch her – she finds this VERY funny ? You’ll also laugh wondering how this tiny girl can sound like an elephant when she’s racing around! But don’t worry, she does spend time sleeping too.

She’s very chatty, and has a massive vocabulary. And did we mention she has a short little tail? That little short tail conveys a ton of emotion and she whips it around to help communicate everything she wants you to know ?

For all her spunk, Tapestry is equally sweet, likes to cuddle, and is very affectionate. Yes, she needs a lot of attention, but she gives as much as she gets. And she purrs up a storm! If you come close when she’s sleepy, she’ll start to purr before you even touch her – she’s a spontaneous purring machine who tends to drool when she’s happy. Sometimes she’ll purr next to you on the couch, other times she’ll be purring in your lap, and there are times when she just wants her peace and she’ll take herself off to a quiet hidey spot for a catnap. Tapestry would also love to join you on the bed at night.

This pretty, little lady has 4 white socks on her feet, and her fur is absolutely super soft and shiny, just like a kitten. She grooms herself every day and she’ll tolerate a brush for a minute or two, but beyond that she figures she can take care of whatever needs to be done ?

Tapestry was surrendered to us about 2 years ago when a teenage girl’s parents were splitting up, and neither parent wanted their daughter to have her cat in their home. Tapestry had been with the family since she was a kitten and was devastated to lose her family after so many years. She got depressed at the shelter and stopped eating, so she went home with one of our experienced volunteers to get her eating again. She ended up staying in her foster home, but she shares her home with other cats and she’s really not a fan of them.

Tapestry would really love a home of her own, where she can be the queen of the castle. To her, being the queen means no other pets or kids, please and thank you! If you give her a chance, she’ll be the queen of your heart before you know it! There’s so much sweetness bundled up in this tiny package.

Tapestry gets a small amount of liquid medicine once a day for hyperthyroidism so she qualifies for our Permanent Foster program. This means Katie’s Place will cover all costs associated with her vet visits and medications for the rest of her life. She takes her meds like a champ (you can put it into her food - no fuss with this little lady!) and her condition doesn’t slow her down one bit.

This young-at-heart girl has many good years ahead of her still. They say age is just a number, and that’s certainly true in Tapestry’s case! Tapestry looks and acts like she’s 6, it’s almost impossible to believe she’s 15. Tapestry will be the first to tell you that you’re only as old as you feel, and she feels like she’s just getting started ?
