Hi, my name is Mavis.
I'm a beautiful cat, but I know that's not what you see when looking at my pictures. That's because I got a Covid haircut. Yip, even cats get those when they can’t get to the groomer. I hated having my hair cut and I screamed because my long fur was so matted, some spots it was cut right to the skin. That's what happens when you're abandoned and trying hard to survive outside on your own. I needed some help. I knocked on many doors in Altona before this one guy started to help me. I heard him say "I guess we are going to heat the world waiting for you to decide to come in". After my bad experience, you have to be careful with whom you trust! But I was cold, his house was warm and I could smell some good food in there. Not wanting to drool all over my already ugly fur, I went in to eat and he slammed the door closed! Then he called animal control and I was in cat jail! I was thinking I would never trust people again, but things had already started to change for me, I just didn't know it yet.
Furever Friends volunteers visited me and told me things were going to be okay if I started to trust people again. I'm still working on it. Maybe you can be someone I trust? If you've got dogs...forget it! Those aren't very trustworthy, even most cats aren't very nice to me. I think a home with just people might be what I need to be my most beautiful self and learn to trust and love unconditionally again. Someplace just for me to play and snuggle because that is what I love to do. I jump so high to get that feather wand and like a nice soft blanket and a lap to snuggle on once I've tuckered myself out. I've been fully vetted including a spay, vaccinations, booster, tattoo ID, blood tested, treated and I'm ready to be adopted.
