Sadie is 3.5 years old and weighs 8.5 pounds. Sadie is a shy and sensitive cat who is looking for a quiet, loving, and attentive home without a lot of visitors. When she knows she can trust you she is friendly and playful. But she gets scared by things easily; people she doesn’t know, sounds she doesn’t know, new items of furniture, etc.
New Leash Rescue took her in from a shelter where she wasn’t doing well in that environment. Her previous owner had to surrender her as she was moving to a nursing home. She was initially very scared of her foster cat sister, but is recently warming up and showing interest in getting to know. She has also recently become comfortable with a regular friendly dog visitor. It has taken months for both to occur so very slow acclimations to any other resident pets needed.
She needs her places to hide when she is scared. I wouldn’t have guessed a cat could fit behind my piano. She likes to try to open cupboard doors (and can; I found her in the bathroom cupboard once- trying to get back out). As a heads up, cupboard door entertainment can be noisy. She can be vocal at times (hey, I hear you are home so come pet me and play with me, I want attention!), but she is by no means an excessive talker.
She is a beauty with shiny black hair, but you won’t be able to show her off as she will hide from your visitors. In her previous home a regular visitor only saw her a couple of times in three years. She loves to play.
Though she loves to be petted (even her belly!) she is not a lap cat. She is a good jumper and likes to explore (the view from the top of the kitchen cupboards must be stellar). She is front declawed. She is fastidious concerning her litter box.
