Additional Details

BIG FAN OF: Looking outside and being up high.

NOT A FAN OF: Strangers, loud noises, fast movements and children. She'll do best in a home with mature family members who will give her all the time she needs to settle in.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Wendy is a sweetheart once she is comfortable with you. She's low-maintenance and mostly likes to find a secluded spot to relax in and nap the day away. In the evening she will hop into your lap and walk around while you pet her. She enjoys being brushed and petted and will come to you when she needs some love. She does use a vertical scratching post and will chase laser dots for short periods of time.

OTHER REASONS SHE'S SPECIAL: Wendy needs time to get used to new people and environments, so don't be surprised if she hides a lot of the time, especially in the beginning. She'll be your secret admirer. She has been doing well in her foster home and usually finds a cozy spot to relax in for most of the day and then comes out in the evenings to say hi.

DREAM HOME: A quiet, predictable home with people who will be patient with her and give her lots of time to settle in. Time and space are what Wendy needs to come out of her shell ... and she is worth the wait!

HOW TO ADOPT: This cat is participating in our Shelter Cat Getaway program -- a program designed to give cats a vacation from the shelter and let them enjoy home life while they wait to be adopted. While vacation is fun, there really is no place like home, so please consider adopting one of these deserving cats! As part of this program, their adoption fee is just $50 each (or $75 for a pair)! To learn more about this cat or schedule a time to meet it, please contact Carol at cgriglione@arl-iowa.org or Betsy at bsalmon@arl-iowa.org.
