Angelina came to us as a very young cat who was abandoned outside. In her foster home Angelina was a very sweet girl who was always purring. And at the shelter, Angelina has been just as charming. Pink-lidded eyes bat at you when you approach. Then Angelina turns on the purr and rubs up against you, seeking petting. Angelina clearly wants to be adored. And when this lovely girl makes up her mind to be adorable, Angelina is pretty hard to resist!
But Angelina has preferences that she expects to be honored. One of those preferences is the avoidance of other cats who might disagree with her personal boundaries. Perhaps because she was bullied during her time outside, Angelina is uncomfortable with other cats coming too close. She will give a warning hiss. But if a cat ignores the hiss, Angelina has no difficulty letting them know when they get too close!
For this reason, we would recommend that Angelina either go home as your one and only or with a cat who will respect her need for space. Angelina will not cry or meow when spending time by herself. Instead, this darling diva will spend her time savoring the luxuries of a soft pillow, a full tummy, and a warm sunny windowsill. When you come home, Angelina will be sure to show her appreciation by meeting you at the door, winding around your feet, and purring her thanks.
Angelina is looking for a person who appreciates her vibrant personality, understands her past, and can gently teach her that hands are not toys. Angelina would love to be settled into her forever home in time for Christmas... and purring loudly under your tree!
