Meet Valentine

Sep 8,2016 - Valentine has been adopted by her foster family. They have taken care of Valentine since she was a feral kitten and she is now 6 years old; a real sweetheart.

Valentine is a very shy cat who needs a home where people will love her unconditionally. She has progressed from a terrified pregnant feral to a cat who enjoys hanging out near people, but does not enjoy being cuddled. She is best suited to a very quiet house with another gentle cat. She likes to watch TV with her foster family and especially enjoys sports, the exercis programs and the nature channel. Her favorite toy is a catnip bag. Valentine will be your invisible cat until she gets to know you. You will get glimpses of her, then she will follow you into a room and hang out near by, always keeping her distance. As her trust grows the distance will get smaller. She seems to recognize her name and she blinks her eyes when you talk to her. This sweet cat has had a rough start in life and is just beginning to trust people. When she finally bonds with you, you will know that you are the most important person in the world to her and, even though she does not get all mushy about it. This is Valentine's story: - "My sister & I were born in October 2009 and we were known as the Tuxedo Twins, (she was Tuxedo-1 and I was Tuxedo-2). We were born outside in a feral colony. Our grandfather Socks, an old feral who was born and has lived out on the streets for 7 years, took us in the dead of winter to our foster's deck. He showed us that there was food, fresh unfrozen water and shelter there. We were a couple of months old at that time. We set up camp close to the feeding station and ate there regularly from that day on. Our granddad and other friends and family visited us regularly. We are scared of humans because they had never been nice to us before. However, we came to rely on our foster's food, and started to trust her more and more. I am the more timid one, but my sister ended up spending Spring and Summer days lazing around the garden and laying beside our human. We got to know our feeder's cats, and they were always happy to play with us. As we grew up, my sister and I got pregnant one after the other. We found a place to live and have our babies. It was a hole that led us to a mould-infested filthy crawl space of an abandoned house. My sister had her babies first - three daughters: Summer, Solstice & Miracle. When our feeder found out that our hole to our home was going to be plugged up, and the abandoned house was going to be torn down by the business that owned it, she spent a lot of time stalking us and eventually caught us to save us. I went to a new foster home that day. They were very nice and petted me and fed me. That was my first contact and being touched by a human. Two days later, I gave birth to my four sweet babies......Vivaldi, Mozart, Pachelbel and Bach. All kittens have been adopted
