Tikka is a purebred Abyssinian, 7 years of age, who came to us through our vet clinic because of her strong reaction to the previous owner's new dog. Indeed, her current foster mom thinks she is sensitive to stress and even emotion, as she tends to stick close to your side when she senses that something is wrong. She believes it's her way of providing support. Tikka is quite an independent little thing and doesn't require a lot of attention otherwise. She is very relaxed and chill in her quiet foster home.
Tikka has a petite frame and she is also a little cross-eyed, something that the foster mom finds endearing. She doesn't have a large appetite and she uses her litterbox and scratching post religiously, so one would say she is a very low maintenance sort of cat.
We were told that Tikka has asthma that does not generally present itself on an ongoing basis, so she is not receiving medication regularly. Apparently it might rear its head every once in a while (maybe once every couple of years), and a shot of steroid is usually all she needs to put her to rights. The previous owner provided us with a long memo describing this and other behaviors to help us understand Tikka's needs going forward, something we would be sure to pass along to the adopter.
Tikka has been fully vetted (spayed, vaccinated, tested for disease, treatment for parasites) and the previous owner provided us with her "papers" from the breeder attesting to the fact that she is a purebred Abyssinian. We are looking for a quiet adoptive home (adults only) with no other pets to keep her in a her current blissed out state of being.
We ask for a minimum $160 donation for each of our rescued cats. A charitable tax receipt will be issued.
