Jordan is stunning. Those golden eyes will catch your attention. Then you notice those luxurious locks. Are they jet black? In some lights you would say yes, In others, you can see a chocolate brown, maybe even a sepia tone. Whatever the color, Jordan's fur is gorgeous. She is gorgeous.
Whenever a very striking cat comes in to Protectors of Animals, we wonder: diva or girl next door? Is the cat going to be as nice as she is pretty or are we looking at a Mariah Carey, who will throw tantrums or want the cat equivalent of two vases of white roses before she allows us to get near? To be honest, Jordan started out on the diva side of the scale.
Jordan was mad to be at the shelter. She was irritated that there were other cats around, stealing her attention. And when she first arrived, Jordan was as likely to swat as she was to purr. But we knew that she had been an adored family ca,t who had come to us only because the owner's health issues had made it impossible to keep Jordan. We understand that adjusting to a shelter after being a loved part of the family is hard. We gave Jordan a little time. It paid off.
One day, we opened up her condo and let Jordan out on the floor. Jordan sashayed out like a star... and immediately relaxed. While she hasn't yet bonded with any of the other cats, Jordan was fine with them as long as they were respectful of her. She showed no aggression. Jordan played, running and sliding after the laser light. Jordan approached the volunteers to say hello and get a little petting. So the verdict is: girl next door, with diva good looks. Can't beat that.
