Hi, I'm Vicki! I'm the perfect winter companion, a Snowshoe! I'm look for a castle to rule like the queen I am! I had a rough life before I came to Dolly's, and as a result, I take a long time to trust new people and new places. Once I warm up to you, I am very playful and LOVE to chase a feather wand toy. I am looking for a home without kids and with a human or two who will let me be in charge of our relationship, respecting my boundaries and paying attention to my signals. Right now, I don't like to be picked up and I only like to be petted on my terms. But every day I get more comfortable and have started to snuggle up next to my foster mom when she's watching TV or sleeping. She thinks I'll get more affectionate in the future as I get more comfortable. I am still working on my social skills with the other kitties in my foster home. I am the queen of mixed signals -- growing while my body language says "play with me," and often I'm a little too assertive (not violent but definitely spicy) when I try to play chase with them. They're very patient, so any kitties (or maybe doggos -- I haven't been around any) in my new home would need to be patient and non-reactive to me. Like with people, my foster mom thinks how I related to other cats will change as I learn to cat better and get more comfortable in a new home. I was super skinny when I first came to Dolly's, but I've learned how good regular wet and dry food are (especially wet food -- yummy!). I'm a very enthusiastic eater, and I'm slowing growing to a healthy weight. I love a good session with the scratching post and pad. I usually don't scratch places I shouldn't, but I may need redirection sometimes if you have scratchable carpet. I have excellent litterbox manners. Are you the kind, patient human I'm waiting for?
