Other notes

Diamond is a mostly white calico-tabby. She was born March 24th, 2018 in a horse barn. Her birth mother wasn’t capable of caring for her kittens & disliked them, so I started becoming Diamond’s new parent when she was only 6 weeks old. She doesn’t have any special food needs or medicines to take.
She’s high energy, always wants to be there to watch what you’re doing (be part of your family), wants to be on your lap constantly, and she’ll want to sleep on/with you.
She’s cool with kids and is familiar with dogs. She may feel out of place living with a dog, though, as she hasn’t been fully socialised to them long enough.
She’s declawed, very socialised with people (is not afraid of them). Any tall, big man might scare her at first but with time she’ll see he is safe! If you don’t sit down with her to get on her level for pets & scritches, she’ll see you standing over her, might get anxious & hide. She’s very quiet & never really meows unless she needs attention. If you lock her away in another room separate from your own, she will experience separation anxiety & cry.. don’t do it unless you absolutely need to. The ability to roam, run around & explore calms her down. She’ll do it every night before you go to bed. It’s like she’s making sure the house is safe before resting.
She gets along with male cats well, but not female cats. When she was a kitten, she had ear infections in both ears so since she healed from that fully, her hearing has been more sensitive. Loud, abrupt noises will startle her especially if she doesn’t know the source. Some sounds are new to her so it’s best to be considerate of that. She will hide after hearing a loud noise. If I’m not there to counsel her when she’s having anxiety, she may not come out from hiding. She looks to me for comfort & safety so she will feel out of place or be on edge at times. I don’t know that that issue can be remedied until she will be back living with me, again.

I’m looking for temporary fostering by January at the latest. Permanently rehoming her is my absolute last option I’m willing to go with as it would cause Diamond to experience behavioral problems for the rest of her life, as she was already abandoned by her birth mother as a kitten. Despite her struggles, she’s beyond loving and trusting.
Thank you for your time. If there are questions or anything I missed, please feel free to reach out.
