Isabelle is beautiful young Siamese cross who hasn't had the best of lives so far. Isabelle unfortunately suffered physical and emotional abuse in a past home which had taken it's toll. After many months in care with a loving and patient foster carer Isabelle has healed most of her wounds (both physical and emotional). In the way of physical Isabelle has a blocked tear duct that vets can do nothing to fix. It causes her no pain, just means her eye doesn't drain to her nasal passages like a normal eye does. Instead her eye constantly has a reddish discharge that at times is quite minimal, and more noticeable at others. Isabelle cleans and cares for her eye quite well on her own, and only requires your assistance in cleaning it if the eye has heavily discharged for a few days, she can develop a small rash like reaction to the discharge which is easily treated with Paw Paw cream once a day for a few days. Her foster carer has had to do this only once is 5 months since the eye has been stabilized.
Emotionally Isabelle will always bare some scars which means she is shy with new people and quite guarded until you prove you are not going to harm her and earn her trust. But Isabelle is an amazing Cat who is quite capable of learning to trust again and has a close relationship with her foster carer. Isabelle has not allowed the horrible experiences of her past to taint her personality, some cats would be come aggressive and defensive after such abuse, but not Isabelle. Isabelle has never shown her foster carer any sign of aggression and rather than lash out when terrified (when she first arrived) she retreated within herself hiding in (a special enclosed bed to make her feel more comfortable) her bed for until she felt it was safe to come out (which took a few weeks for her to feel safe enough to be approached.
Isabelle is seeking the safety and comfort of a quiet indoor only home where she can be loved for the beautiful sweet girl she is. Isabelle doesn't like to be picked up and held for more than a few seconds, but will come and snuggle up on your lap whilst you are relaxing on the couch watching TV. Isabelle needs to be affectionate within her comfort zone, the more she trusts you the bigger the zone gets. I think she would also very much enjoy sharing a bed on a cold winters evening. Isabelle would be best suited to a home with no or older (late teens) children and either no or just a few other pets. Isabelle is quite confident with the large (30kgs) very Cat friendly dog in her foster home, but takes some time to become use to other cats. Isabelle came in to care with her kitten so she was at one time outdoors falling pregnant and potentially attacked by cats too, so is justifiably guarded with them.
