My name is Absinthe, but my foster family call me Abi most of the time.
I came into care with my two sisters after we found ourselves handed in to a vet clinic. I was a very scared little girl, but I am much happier now, becoming more confident and adventurous all the time. I used to hiss if my foster humans came close, but now that I know they’re here to help and protect me, I’m much more accepting of their company. I’m still the most shy of my siblings, and although still hesitant, I’m getting to know that these two-legged friends aren’t so bad.
I need a home that is fairly relaxed and mostly quiet as I can still be a bit nervous sometimes. My new human(s) will also need to appreciate that I will just need a little time, space, patience, and lots of gentle chats and cuddles to settle in and know that I am safe and adored.
I’m still unsure around new people, and not too keen on energetic young children as they frighten me. I like my own time and space, and appreciate the opportunity to approach my two-legged creatures when I’m ready. I’m still a bit nervous being held, but I will tolerate cuddles politely while hiding in your arms or lap, and eventually relax a little more, sharing with you my affectionate side and strong purr!
We kindly shared our foster home with a cat friendly foster dog for a while. He was okay for a dog. We’ve had other cat-friendly doggy visitors too, and we were fine with them, but naturally any play dates should always be supervised. I’m also comfortable around other cats, and often can be found playing chasey or wrestling with my sisters or foster siblings, or checking out their toys. I love to play and explore but usually when I don’t think anyone is looking.
I'm not fussy with my food, and I am always very happy to see my humans at meal times and lend a paw to supervise preparations.
If I sound like your kind of girl, and you know that you could provide me with a safe and loving forever home to happily and safely grow old in, please contact my friends at All Creatures Rescue & Rehab.
