Sleek silver Kara was brought in as a youngster by a guardian who was afraid the dogs where he was living were going to harm her. She quickly adapted to her foster home and came back to the Haven sassy and independent, ready to find a new family.
Laura had moved here from Texas and was looking for a cat who could be okay at home alone while she worked but who would soak up attention when she came home. Kara soon charmed her because who could resist those kisses?
Laura says everything is going great: “We have settled into a routine, and I’m starting to learn what her different vocalizations are for. I see happy tail postures throughout the day as she follows me around the apartment and rubs up against me.
Her favorite additions to our home in the last month has been an electric blanket I use on the couch, a new scratching post, and a fourth new wand toy. 😂 We also recently discovered one position she likes to be cuddled in.
We will both be sad for less walks once the weather gets too cold and the snow gets too prevalent. (There have been times she has paced back and forth from me to the front door, yowling to be taken out for a walk, and has only settled down once I’ve pulled the harness down to get her ready.)
She has been healthy and happy, eating and playing well. I’m following vet recommendations on feedings and kcalories; (I’ve never counted calories a day in my life for myself, but I’ll do it for the cat no problem!)
She gets lots of exercise during the day chasing wand toys or her smaller toys that skitter across the floor; she even taught herself fetch and we will play that most mornings before I go to work. We also have a running wheel that she uses multiple times a day, which is adorable.
I’m trying to spoil her well. She’s a little princess and I’m so glad to have her. ❤️”
