Hi, my name is Catlynn. If you don’t fall in love with me perhaps you will fall in love with my story.
I am a reformed feral. That means I was born wild and I don’t always act like a normal cat, but most of the time I am as normal as most. I don’t really like to be picked up but I will definitely snuggle with you in bed or on the couch! I can be bit of a scaredy-cat but most of the time I am a confident, friendly sweet cat and I love to wiggle my tail in the air to let you know I am very happy! I used to have substantial trust issues, but I worked really hard on them and now I can go to different foster homes and only need a few days to transition. I get along with every person that cares for me and I snuggle and sit on their lap to let them know I appreciate all their love! The FFCR volunteers are amazed at what an awesome cat I have become!
I was found by Furever Friends with 6 kittens. They trapped me and my kids and put us into a foster home. All my kittens were tamed and most were adopted, but I never understood this "inside life". Furever Friends said they would let me live my life outside, after all my vetting was done. Whew! It was a relief to be outside, but it was harder than I thought! I had to be acclimated to a new territory because my old territory was too dangerous. After a few weeks in my new spot, they set me free. I liked my new spot. I came everyday to eat and I slept in the heated shelter for over a year.
Then a new dog moved into the neighbourhood. I had to move on and the family that was caretaking me thought I died and grieved for me. They looked for me for months. Guess what, I turned up 6 months later in a whole new place! Those 6 months were a blur, so don’t ask me about them. This new place happened to be a Furever Friends foster home. Coincidental! They started to feed me and all the dots were connected and my old shelter was moved to this new spot, but you know what I really wanted? I wanted to try inside life again. It was now winter and my ears got shorter and I just couldn’t handle all the cat competition anymore. I asked Furever Friends if they could try me inside once more. They said yes!
I now want to be adopted and have a home and family to call my own. I want to be petted. I love to chat at and with you when you talk to me. Just call my name and I come running to you! I start to talk and talk. It feels so good to tell you how happy I am. I still get cautious ever once in awhile, but I am such a happy cat! Sometimes I get swatty with other cats but it just takes a little time to get to know them. I know I don’t have much of a chance of getting adopted because I have asthma and need daily medication, but if you give me a chance I know I can show you what a great cat I am.
Catlynn is fully vetted and available for adoption. She would like a home that can afford her medication and administer a puffer (daily), without children and dogs.
