Tansy is a very shy cat. After two months with us she has learned that a hand reaching out towards her doesn’t mean that she is going to be grabbed. She now enjoys back, chin and cheek scratches, purrs up a storm, and she will head butt to ask for more. She is learning to come when called but she will always assess the situation first to make sure it’s safe. And she feels reassured if her brother Sage is around. When she can’t find him, she will ‘chirp’ softly for him to come out.
Tansy can be very playful as well once she knows you and feels secure. Her favorite toy is the cat dancer wand. She also loves to wrestle with her brother and to play hide and seek with him.
Tansy has met our two dogs on occasion. However, she will only venture outside her safe zone (the spare room) when the dogs are not around. She will also do well in a quiet and calm environment with no kids or other cats.
Please view the video attached on how affectionate she can be once she trusts you. She has tons of potential and she needs a special human companion who is a loving, understanding and patient. I believe that she will be strongly attached to her person and make a loving life-long companion.
