Sage is a very special little lady. As foster parents we often don’t know much of a cat’s origin story, and while Sage was a stray she chose her path in life. Sage was found outside our home, very skinny and quiet. She only had enough energy to run and hide if someone got very close to her. After a few days of asking around the neighborhood we heard that Sage may have been hit by a car before choosing our deck to camp out under. She chose the perfect house because we were determined to help her. Thankfully she didn’t have any life threatening injuries or need for immediate medical intervention but we wanted to ensure that she was forever safe from future danger. We fed Sage for about a week before we gained her trust and were able to trap her. When we brought her inside we realized just how petite she was. Sage does have a scar down her side but we are sure that the cause is only a distant memory now. Her pupils are almost always as wide as dinner plates and she still needs help learning to trust people but this sweet girl is overflowing with potential. She loves to sit under furniture and once she is comfortable with you she actually loves belly rubs and chin scratches. Sage hasn’t learned how to snuggle and she does not want to be picked up. She will walk into her carrier on her own and she does enjoy playing in the presence of her people. Her favorite toy is a ball on a track or a plastic spring. Sage will always remember her start and still loves to hunt bugs as a reminder of where she came from but she is also learning the joys of being an indoor cat and having a scheduled mealtime. Her favorite snack is a Churu squeeze up which helped to build our bond when she first came into our home. Sage is not the typical cat as she had a rough start but she has come so far and has so much more growing to do once she finds her person. Sage plays with the adult cats and foster kittens in her foster home. She also lives with a medium sized female dog who she feels indifferent about. Sage continues to grow socially and she will make someone a very happy pet owner but she would do best in a quiet home with people who are willing to give her as much time as she needs to become the loving forever pet that she has always been meant to be. Sage would also benefit from having another friendly cat in the house to befriend and play with.
